Europatrans rebranded to EFG Heavy Haulage
German special transport company Europatrans has rebranded to EFG Heavy Haulage and set its sights to meeting the growing demand for additional services at its new site in the port of Lübeck on the banks of river Trave.
„With our new place, the new name and the expansion of our range of services we have fully completed the integration of EFG Heavy Haulage into EMS-Fehn-Group,“ says the group’s CEO Manfred Müller. „We are pleased that in addition to road transports we are now also able to offer warehousing, multimodal transshipment and assembly facilities for all kinds of big and heavy goods.“
EFG Heavy Haulage has been specializing in heavy and special transports for more than 25 years. Traditionally, the company has a strong focus on Scandinavia. However, the fleet of modern trucks and trailers has been on the road all across Europe for a long time.
„To meet the significant increase in orders we have consistently renewed and expanded our fleet,“ says EFG Heavy Haulage’s managing director Henning Bentien. „In addition, our new premises allow us to support our customers with comprehensive warehousing facilities and as a multimodal hub with direct access to the Baltic Sea and the rail, road and waterway network.“
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, EFG Heavy Haulage registered a steady increase in demand for the transport of heavy goods. The growth is driven by, among other things, the wind industry and an increasing need for industrial equipment in numerous regions of Europe. In many cases, EFG Heavy Haulage closely collaborates with its sister companies of EMS-Fehn-Group. They specialize in, for example, project logistics or support the building of wind farms with customised crane solutions.
The premises were formerly home to Lübecker Maschinenbau Gesellschaft (LMG), once the largest manufacturer of machines, vessels, cranes and steel constructions in the wider area. They offer roughly 45,000 square meters of inside and outside storage area. The warehouses and the outside area are equipped with powerful cranes. Furthermore, the location meets all technical requirements for assembly work. The vicinity even has its own quay. It is 350 meters long and suited for seagoing vessels.
