Transport for specialised, oversized and out of gauge cargo

We can arrange safe and efficient delivery using almost all kinds of specialised transport. Your cargo is transported in compliance with all the applicable rules and regulations governing specialised transport and you can leave all the paperwork in our hands.

DSV's Road division is generally known for groupage, LTL and FTL shipments. Moreover, we have a special team that believes that even the most complex challenges in transport can be solved successfully.

For example, the request from a supplier of high-quality medical equipment who was able to deliver a new machine in Bologna. The challenge was that the machine had to go to the second floor and unfortunately there was no elevator. The request came to our team to deliver this machine on the second floor. A detailed assessment by our team concluded that it would not be possible to deliver the machine safely to the second floor via the stairs because the machine was too heavy and there was not enough space to turn on the stairs.

The contract was initially awarded to another party, but our assessment was correct. It turned out to be unfeasible to deliver the machine. The customer came back to our team again asking if there was another solution. Our team has sent a delegation to Bologna to conduct a so-called site survey.

As it turned out, the option to deliver was there! The machine could be delivered via a window with a 3.5 ton forklift that can reach a height of 5 meters. A low loader with the forklift was sent from Venlo to Bologna, as well as a team with materials for the installation of the smaller materials. Ultimately, the machine was delivered to the second floor in full accordance with the expectations of the customer and the customer's customer!

Our Special Transport department knows from experience that a solution can be found for almost all special transport issues! If you have a special transport request, very high urgency, a white glove delivery or, for example, would like to transport accommodation for a fashion show on St. Marco's Square, please contact Paul van der Sterren. You will notice that his answer will not easily be no.

Of course we also handle the following types of shipments:

  • Dangerous goods
  • Temperature-controlled transport
  • Hanging garments
  • Odd size/Out of gauge
  • High-value goods
  • White-glove delivery
  • Bulk cargo

In addition to offering specialised transport, we also handle all types of standard shipments by road, air and sea. Once your shipment is on its way, you can track its progress at all times using the myDSV Track & Trace system.
