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

WE PERFORM THE FOLLOWING TASKS WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE ATB

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.

Relocation of HPHT presses for Algordanza
Algordanza AG is the only manufacturer of memorial diamonds worldwide. From the urn ashes of the deceased, a diamond is created that can always be carried with you and is everlasting. The isolation of the carbon, by means of a chemical process is carried out in the Swiss laboratory by experienced laboratory technicians. To enable crystal synthesis, conditions must be created as in the earth’s interior. Diamonds are formed by pressure and high temperatures. This is simulated by HPHT (High Pressure – High Temperature) presses and allows the memory diamonds to be created.
