Gigantic mobile crane shipped with UECC from Bremerhaven to Piraeus

UECC is pleased to share a story about a recent cargo shipped from Bremerhaven to Piraeus.

Oslo, Norway - 20.03.2018

The cargo is a huge 9-axle mobile crane, a Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 having a weight of 108 tons and nearly 22m in length!

It was loaded successfully on UECC’s M/V VICTORY LEADER, departed from Bremerhaven for Piraeus, Greece.

The LTM 1750-9.1 is one of the biggest mobile cranes made by Liebherr at their Ehingen factory. It has 9 axles, each carrying 12 tons of this impressive machine.

A big thank you to our German commercial agent – WWL Bremen who worked hard to book this magnificent cargo!

Unfortunately, all the counterweights and accessories which belong to this crane (nearly 304 tons, calculated for shipment on 11 x 40’ MAFI Trailer) have been trucked directly to the Greek consignee.

In our recent observations, for such big transports, the main big machine will be loaded by vessel, but all the “smaller” materials are trucked, even on long distances. In the past, such big machines and parts have always been shipped together, so we hope to be able to have an opportunity to ship both the main machine and parts altogether in future!
