ALE takes delivery of world’s highest capacity trailers

ALE takes delivery of world’s highest capacity trailers

ALE has taken delivery of 240 axle lines of the new generation SCHEUERLE Self Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs) in February 2016.

The vehicles have 60t capacity per line with 15” tyres, making these the world’s highest capacity SPMTs.

ALE made the decision to purchase the latest generation of trailers as part of their overall investment in their global trailer fleet. These new trailers will increase their fleet by 14,400t capacity.

The trailers also have a much higher bending moment capacity. This enables them to have a greater spread and the ability to carry an increased loading.

The new trailers have environmentally friendly power packs with EU 4 / EPA Tier 4 final exhaust emission certification.

Ronald Hoefmans, Technical Director at ALE says: “By investing in the latest generation of trailers it positions us at the forefront of the industry, pushing the boundaries for the world’s highest SPMT capacity and solving the challenges for our clients.”

Bernd Schwengsbier, President TII Sales, says: “70 per cent of all transports over 3,000t and 90 per cent of all transports over 5,000t worldwide are done with vehicles manufactured by us. The innovations we develop steadily are the reason for this predominance”.

These trailers will mainly be utilised across branches in the UK and the Netherlands.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?

Single Issues

If you prefer to purchase individual issues (one at a time), you will still have the ability to do so, both online (via the website), or by calling our offices +44 (0) 1572 3450872. Orders for single issues received before the pre-publication deadline will be mailed along with the subscribers.
