With close to 500 regular clients and over 15,000 loads per year, Capelle is the European leader in the transport of mobile machinery and equipment. In response to demand in this sector, Capelle Transports offers both conventional hauling services (covering everything from mini-diggers to graders by way of cherry pickers) and abnormal load transport services (for diggers and drills, as well as tanks of all sizes). This way, we are able to meet the needs of sectors like construction, public works, quarries and the military.
Transport of mobile equipment for multiple sectors (construction, public works, the military, agriculture, etc.)
The use of building site machinery is essential for construction and public works projects, whether they involve new builds, renovations or even demolitions. Equipment sizes are typically a function of capacity (power, load, etc.). And building sites can be hard to access.
The organisation of logistics to deliver public works machinery to its destination can easily become a headache for the contractor, the company hiring out the machinery or the manufacturer. Depending on the dimensions, the equipment can be transported as a full load, less than a full load or by abnormal load convoy.
When you need to transport diggers, bulldozers, loaders, scrapers and so on, opt for the technical expertise of Capelle’s logistics team.
Comprehensive logistics services for construction and public works equipment
Capelle is here to meet your needs with our full array of services including loading, storage, haulage to building sites and, when the project is done, transport of your machinery to your home base or to another construction site.
For international shipments (exports), we can handle the transport of your equipment to the port.
We have also developed special skills in the transport of road-rail diggers and accessories.
