Increasingly modular, prefabricated designs of new plants and civil infrastructure projects are helping facilities come online faster by reducing on-site construction and assembly time, costs and complexity.
But they’re also posing new logistical challenges for transporting these super loads to site, often over great distances and in remote locations.
At Vanguard, we’re dedicated to solving these specialised transport requirements in the most efficient, cost-effective and secure ways possible.
Backed by the most comprehensive, high-performance fleet of hydraulic trailers, prime movers and specialised gantries in the southern hemisphere, we’ve engineered customised, end-to-end transportation solutions for some of the biggest industrial loads ever moved in Africa.
Be it a 3 100 km journey from Namibia to the DRC, or the transport of a 800-ton excavator in one piece – from pulp and paper to steel, power generation, oil and gas, mining and general heavy industry, Vanguard welcomes your heavy transport challenge.
