Propelling your business
In the second half of the 20th century, a trend began that would change the complete transport industry forever. With the first, self-propelled transport modules in the shipbuilding sector followed by the introduction of the SPMT (Self Propelled Modular Transporter) in the 1980s - a SCHEUERLE development - possible payloads now dramatically increased and are today, in principle, almost unlimited. Seventy per cent of all transports over 3,000 tonnes and ninety per cent of all shipments over 5,000 tonnes are now carried out on modular, self-propelled vehicles from the TII Group. The modular vehicles have found their way into the oil and gas industry, shipbuilding and many other industries. Unit weights of 17,280 tonnes - a world record - have already been transported with SPMTs from the TII Group.
