The project logistics experts from the MC Nord work all over the world. In India the Swiss affiliate General Transport AG recently handled the transport of a 360 ton generator from Europe via Mumbai to Solapur.

The generator arrived at Mumbai by sea. MC Nord then transported it by road with a low loader trailer to its site, which was over 600 kilometres away. A special transport container was produced on site specifically for this purpose. This increased the total weight of the convoy to 583 tons, with a length of over 68 metres. Three tractor units, each with 520 hp were put into action.

The generator reached its destination after 87 days on the often hilly road. Secure, safe and exactly according to plan.
