At Martin Transports, we guarantee fast and smooth transport of your goods by exceptional convoy in Switzerland and Europe, primarily in Italy. Because of our experience and expertise, many companies call on our services every day to send their goods by exceptional convoy.
This service concerns the circulation of goods in exceptional convoys, in other words, machines or vehicles running on the road network and whose dimensions and/or weight are likely to hinder traffic. Exceptional convoys are subject to strict rules and prior authorization, with the aim of limiting traffic accidents. Thus, in order to limit the number of exceptional convoys and the inconvenience caused, the load must be an indivisible mass. In other words, the load cannot be able to split into several loads. This type of transport therefore imposes a specific route, specific traffic conditions and finally the use of suitable vehicles.
Exceptional convoys generally transport goods whose width, length and/or weight are oversized. The latter are characterized by their atypical shape and/or their protrusions, which make them difficult to handle. The transport of these indivisible loads must be done with the greatest precaution. Indeed, any lack of supervision during an exceptional convoy is likely to cause considerable damage to the goods, thus causing serious losses. The vehicles and goods whose circulation on the public highway requires a special authorization are:
● Heavy vehicles (cars, armored tanks, planes)
● Construction elements
● Prefabricated houses
● Machinery parts for heavy industry
● Agricultural and forestry vehicles with an oversized width
● Public works materials
