Driver wide transport experienced

Exceptional transport or abnormal transport applies to loads that exceed the normal legal maximum dimensions and weights for a ‘normal’ transport.
In this sector Nooteboom is a leader in innovating and manufacturing appropriate, high-quality solutions for the transport of any kind of abnormal load. The transport of abnormal loads with our advanced equipment requires a certain level of expertise and knowledge of the equipment, all the deviating regulatory requirements and of course a different style of driving on the road. The course Driver Wide Transport ensures the safe and responsible transport of wide loads on the Dutch road network. We are talking about transports of abnormal width with an increased safety risk.
