The shape of things to come

Poznan, Poland. For Panas Transport, leaders in extreme heavy haulage, every transport is a unique and highly demanding challenge. It’s not just the weight of the load, up to several hundred tonnes – but the shape of the load. Specialists in handling wide, long loads, they often transport the things that keep society moving, like trams, trains, subway cars and planes. This mighty Volvo FH 16 750 with I-Shift with crawler gears is proving to be a true game-changer. Its purpose-built trailer is fitted with rails that lock the tram in position. And because heavy haulage often takes place in the calm of night, Marcin Zwolak can look forward to the comfort of the cab for a good day’s sleep.
