Permits and exceptional transport escorts

EMIL EGGER has sufficient ATB drivers in the required national language (DE, FR, EN, IT), the appropriate vehicles and also the necessary authorizations for the entire area of operation.


“We bring every load with special masses safely to its destination! Our specially trained and experienced staff offers heavy transport services in Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein. We guarantee efficient planning and execution with all necessary clarifications, inspections and permits.”

Michael Dudler
Division Manager Heavy Lift Logistics, Member of the Executive Board


Within the framework of exceptional transport escorts, we ensure that the vehicle and cargo arrive safely at their destination on the route prescribed by the licensing authority and in compliance with safety requirements. The focus is on road safety and the protection of road infrastructure.

ATB Authorized companies/persons may give road users mandatory traffic signs and use variable text display boards as part of the transport. Thanks to the exception and escort vehicles, it is allowed to deviate from the traffic rules and signaled or marked instructions during the journey, provided that sufficient safety measures are taken.
