Our experience stevedoring teams can utilize a large range of equipment. In their work, they have access not only to the usual slinging gear such as chains, transverse beams, crossbars etc., but also to special equipment for complex loading. And when confronted with a cargo that can't be handled with conventional gear, we create tailor-made equipment. 

Additionally, if your transport departs via the Weser river, on request we can even accompany your cargo to the port of discharge, where our supercargoes will ensure it is handled professionally.
