Two anniversaries and a new Faktor 5 for Tradelossa

In 2018 Tradelossa, headquartered in Durango, Mexico, celebrates its 45th anniversary. The company offers all-in-one solutions for the heavy haul and abnormal load transportation industry and handles national and international logistics operations in North and South America. “As a leader in the heavy haul industry in Mexico, Tradelossa is committed to continuously invest in world class equipment to serve its customers and meet their requirements to the full,” says Rafael de los Santos, Managing Director at Tradelossa. For many years now the company has accordingly placed its trust in vehicles from Goldhofer. The Tradelossa fleet includes various types of heavy-duty modules and an extensive selection of special equipment – like an older high girder bridge – supplied by the global market leader from the South German city of Memmingen.

This year the two companies also have a joint anniversary to celebrate. De los Santos explains: “Tradelossa was the first Mexican company to purchase and operate Goldhofer equipment. This year marks the 20th anniversary of a trustful relationship between the two companies.”

As an addition to its existing fleet of over 150 Goldhofer axle lines, Tradelossa has now ordered Faktor 5 high girder bridge, christened Doña Pilar, in memory of the company’s co-founder. It is being shipped to Mexico in April 2018. The designation Faktor 5 is a reference to the impressive payload to deadweight ratio of 5:1; the 100-ton bridge makes light work of cargos weighing up to 500 tons. The highly robust design means it is also suitable for use in challenging settings. In addition, the design has a focus on modularity, which gives the Faktor 5 the versatility to handle a wide range of transport operations. Flexible adjustment of length and width means the high girder bridge can take loads that are 3 – 6.75 m wide and 11 – 17 m long.

Tradelossa has primarily acquired Doña Pilar to increase the company’s transport capacities in order to cope with continually increasing demand for its services and avoid bottlenecks by operating its two high girder bridges simultaneously. De los Santos says, “The heavy haul industry is an industry that requires a slim, flexible and creative management. To assume that business ‘as usual’ will keep you busy is a mistake and not the pace at which our industry is changing. To evolve, invest wisely, and push yourself is the only way to guarantee you will remain in this business in the near future.”

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?
