How to transport beer equipment

By Niamh Marriott26 January 2022

A large cargo of beer production equipment was moved from Liverpool to Manchester in the UK.

In the UK the cargo was managed by Denholm Project Forwarding

The 6 metre wide overseas cargo was managed in the UK by Denholm Project Forwarding, a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC), in cooperation with fellow WWPC member with LS International Cargo from Germany.

Though a relatively short journey, the project needed advance approval from police and local authorities to secure escort services and road closures.

The cargo was over 6 metres wide

A spokesperson for the company said, “Although the distance shipped was relatively short, Denholm Project Forwarding’s approach to meticulous planning was still required to ensure a safe, smooth and on-time delivery on behalf of its client.”

Transport regs tighten in Europe

Further tightening of regulations for abnormal transport loads have been reported in Germany, France and Belgium, the European association for abnormal road transport and mobile cranes ESTA has found. Read about the changes here.
