Collett Moves Goole Gantry

100-tonne Unit to Gatwick

Haulage firm Collett & Sons has transported a gantry from Goole to Gatwick in the UK.

The over-dimensional unit weighed 100 tonnes and was carried on a Mercedes-Benz 8x4 Arocs SLT transporter. The gantry was destined for the M23 Smart Motorway Upgrade Programme.

“This 54.8 meter-long gantry is the second, and largest, of the four to head out of our Goole Heavy Lift Depot.  Accompanied by our code of practice escort vehicles, the double bogie trailers set off on the 250 mile trip to the development site,” a spokesperson for Collett & Sons said. 

Based in Halifax, England, Collett & Sons operates a fleet of heavy-lift trucks, trailers and SPMTs and provides breakbulk logistics throughout the UK and Europe.
