Special and exceptional transports attract a lot of attention and usually need more room on the road. Oversize load escort vehicles are prescribed for such transports and for some routes with mobile cranes Only certified companies with official oversize load escort vehicle (police approved) and specially trained staff are allowed to take on this task. We have been around since day one.
Special and oversize transports in Switzerland that are wider than 3.8 metres, higher than 4.8 metres and longer than 35 metres require an escort. Until recently, such transports were escorted on Swiss roads by police patrols from the respective cantonal police department. Since April 2017, oversize load escorts have been privatized by diverse cantons in cooperation with the Swiss commercial vehicle association ASTAG and further partners.
Thanks to this reorientation, all stakeholders in special transports have been able to make gains in efficiency. Waiting periods and consultation at cantonal borders are no longer necessary and serious planning and execution are guaranteed through the new, solid training programme.
Thanks to our 180 years of experience and our very extensive activities in the area of special transports, we are well aware of the requirements in Switzerland, which vary from canton to canton. As a customer, you profit from our expertise as the escort is comprehensively planned and goes off smoothly. We also carry out private escorts, which are prescribed for certain transports.
