HeavyTorque Issue Nine: Bohnet GmbH


German haulier Bohnet GmbH used two semi low-loaders, one six-, the other seven-axle, each pulled by new MAN TGX XXL tractor units, to carry two 45-tonnne bridge expansion joints 30 kilometers to the Franz-Josef-Strauss airport, near Munich. The 11m-long, 6.22m-wide,1.3m-high units were taken under police escort to be loaded onto an Antonov AN-124 Ruslan, one of the world’s largest air freighters. It took eight hours to load the joints through the nose of the plane using a ramp, mobile crane and winch. The next day the Antonov took off for Mary, Turkmenistan via a refueling stop in Turkmenbashi. The 1,600-metre bridge, which crosses the river Amu Darya, forms part of the highway connecting the towns of Türkmenabat and Farap.

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?
