Long-term SCHEUERLE customer Sterett Crane & Rigging, Owensboro, KY/USA has successfully transported a 140-ton vessel from Tennessee to Michigan using a combination of 6+8 axles SCHEUERLE Highway Giant with 150 ton-capacity bolsters. A special feature on the SCHEUERLE Highway Giant is the integrated folding mechanism which allowed Sterett to load the vehicle modules on standard trailers at the company site in Owensboro, KY, transport them to Clarksville, Tennessee to pick up the load without any special permissions and bring them back to Owensboro accordingly. These inexpensive approval-free empty runs result in huge cost-savings for Sterett.
It was the first time Sterett used a SCHEUERLE Highway Giant combination of this scale. With one tractor ahead and one behind the combination started to move once loading was completed. Tres Sterett, owner of Sterett Crane & Rigging, is convinced of the advantages of the SCHEUERLE Highway Giant:” This vehicle concept has put us ahead of the competition as a freight forwarder. We can react faster to customer requests and, what has become very important in our market, pass on our savings to the customer to offer him the best possible price”. Roland Fischer, Area Manager Sales at TII Sales, adds:” Sterett Crane & Rigging has over sixty years of experience in the market. Their positive feedback on our trailers proves our strategy, listening to the market demands and developing solutions accordingly, right.
Ingeniously simple, simply ingenious: the SCHEUERLE folding technology allows the aproval-free transport of the SCHEUERLE Highway Giant on standard flat-bed trailers.
