Every successful abnormal load movement is a triumph of teamwork that requires coordination, patience and expert knowledge. And, while the spotlight usually shines on the driver and the fantastic vehicles they operate, no move could be done without someone in the background making sure all the right permits and orders are in place, that every interested third party is happy with the arrangements, the route has been analysed and optimised, and experienced escorts are on hand to make sure the load can navigate that route safely.
