Detmers – Containers on the Move

Timesaving and cost-effective loading and unloading

It takes about 15 minutes for our customized trucks, weighing up to 10 tons, to load and off-load containers with their loader cranes.

All the while, special sensors prevent our loader cranes from overburdening, thus guaranteeing the safety of personnel, cargo and trucks.

We handle your containers with care to guarantee that they arrive safe and sound

From the start, we’ve worked together with our manufacturers to develop customized trucks designed specifically for the handling and transportation of containers. That’s why we can personally vouch for the safety of your containers from the moment they’re loaded till their arrival.

Let us be clear: it’s important to us that costs are kept transparent and comprehensible

We generally use a zoning map of Germany/Europe together with a corresponding price list to comprehensibly calculate our services.

This enables us to offer you transparent, uniform services throughout Europe.

Customized containers and abnormal loads

Customized containers & abnormal loads

Detmers – Specialists for abnormal loads

The perfect combination of cutting-edge technology and know-how

Combining a modern, high-performance fleet of vehicles with a team of capable dispatchers and drivers, we are able to provide solutions to even the most challenging transport demands. In order to offer the best solution for your needs, our dispatchers assess the on-site conditions and tailor the logistics accordingly. At the same time, our experienced drivers are not only competent in container handling, but can also be relied upon to respond flexibly to the unexpected and offer strategies to overcome any difficulties that may arise on-site.

Our combination of competencies has proven particularly useful for clients who required the transport of highly sensitive, problematic, or over-sized cargo. Especially companies dealing with measuring instruments, control systems, air-conditioning and ventilation technologies, energy supplies, and event catering can find the perfect, container-based solution to safely transport their out-of-the-ordinary cargo to the most out-of-the-way places.

We take care of all that’s necessary to receive a permit for abnormal loads that are more than 3,00 m wide and/or more than 3,20 m high - from route planning and configuration to the arrangement of an escort.

Specialized loads that we have successfully transported:

  • Temporary kitchens
  • Walk-in cold storage units
  • Mobile heating containers
  • Emergency power generators
  • Measuring instruments and control systems for environmental studies and mobile phone technology
  • Customized modular buildings – e.g. operating theatres
  • Portable manufacturing and sales buildings for bakeries, butchers, etc.

Further abnormal loads include:

  • Metal and concrete pipes
  • Concrete cisterns
  • Cranes
  • Tanks, such as fermenting tanks
