For the past 70 years, we have been transporting equipment for all kinds of industrial sectors. Whether the equipment is new, already in use or second-hand, we take special care with the quality of service we provide, from preparation to fulfilment.
In some cases, our clients’ equipment is hauled, whole or in sub-assemblies, by conventional means on standard flatbeds or low-loaders. And when it meets certain criteria for length, width or weight, we transport it via abnormal load convoys.
industrial machineries in France and the rest of Europe
The transport of industrial machinery demands specific expertise, which Capelle has been cultivating for more than 70 years now. When it comes to transporting stacks, industrial dryers, press brakes, cutting machines, travelling cranes, special machines and other equipment, it is important to be familiar with the different types of machinery and to match them with the right vehicle.
Industrial building projects demand transport that is flawlessly organised in order to stay on schedule and guarantee maximum safety for both cargo and people. For that reason, we conduct feasibility studies in advance and monitor the timeline in detail with our teams.
Tank transport in France and the rest of Europe
We provide tank transport, for tanks made of concrete, metal or plastic, on behalf of manufacturers, metalworkers, installers and fitters. For smaller units, we can optimise your costs by grouping your tanks together on a single vehicle.
For large tank transport, we use special equipment like extendable or extra-low-loaders. Depending on the diameter and length, we may transport certain tanks in abnormal load convoys. We then determine the required vehicle configuration and the best route in view of overhead clearances and other possible obstacles.
Technical and bespoke transport project assessments
In industrial sectors in particular, equipment and machinery can be massive. In some cases, we get involved in advance of planning your transport or even before manufacturing in order to examine your transport options and advise you on the best solutions. Road surveys are carried out by our account managers. Our research department produces technical simulations to ensure all people and cargo are safe and secure. Lastly, our authorisations and operations teams complete the necessary administrative formalities, obtain the required authorisations and coordinate with local authorities.
