The story of an “out-of-gauge” container

Can you imagine transporting this box measuring 7 m in length and more than 4m50 wide and weighing almost 20 tonnes in a container? CERL achieved this thanks to its keenly innovative spirit and a constant determination to find the optimal logistical solution for its clients’ merchandise.

In addition to conventional containers, CERL also proposes containers adapted to specific requirements. With the right know-how, it is possible to transport far more things than you would imagine.

The chosen solution combined “conventional” pre-shipment transportation by road as a special consignment with the use of a flat container (platform) making it possible to board most container ships and consequently to benefit from all the advantages of containerised lines.
