Zagrebtrans buys Scheuerle transport combination

5 February 2020

Zagrebtrans, headquartered in Zagreb, Croatia, has expanded its fleet of vehicles with the addition of an UltralightCombi transport combination from Scheuerle, a subsidiary of TII Group.

The Zagreb-based heavy-load and national and international logistics provider is using a combination consisting of four UltralightCombi modules from which a 5+7 combination can be configured. Between the five axle lines at the front and up to seven axle lines on the rear platform vehicle modules, there is a slab deck featuring a loading length of 8,000mm in the low deck. This combination allows a payload of around 120t with a dead weight of 46.3t. With the help of the UltralightCombi, Zagrebtrans transports mainly large, but relatively light, components for the energy industry. This includes transformers as well as the relatively lighter components of wind power installations.

"The decisive factor for the investment was the technical sophistication of the product and the particularly favourable dead weight per axle line in this vehicle segment," said Davor Radenic, technical manager at Zagrebtrans.

The decision to purchase was also based on the long-standing relationship of trust between Zagrebtrans and Scheuerle. "We had already gained positive experiences with various transport solutions from Scheuerle. Our fleet already includes 72 axle lines of the FlatCombi series", said Radenic.

With the FlatCombi platform vehicles, which have a very low loading height, Zagrebtrans transports particularly heavy and high wind turbine components such as turbine housings, the so-called nacelles. The combination capability of the slab deck allows the heavy-load logistics operator to use it either in combination with UltralightCombi modules as well as with the FlatCombi transport platforms. The compatibility of the loading area module with other Combi series vehicles is a major advantage for Radenic. It saves Zagrebtrans additional investment in special equipment.
