ESTA's SPMT Best Practice Guide

The guidelines will help address the problem of trailers tipping over, which has happened even though the operating rules and stability calculations have been precisely followed.

ESTA's Best Practice Guide for Self-Propelled Modular Transporters

Clients had asked what the industry was going to do about the problem and in response, ESTA created a working group that included representatives from several leading members, plus manufacturers and clients.

The working group contained representatives from Collett & Sons, Fagioli, Goldhofer, Kamag, Mammoet, RDW (the Dutch Department of Road Transport), Sarens, Scheuerle, Shell, Wagenborg Nedlift and The Works International.

The guide covers a wide range of topics including:

• Lines of communication
• Equipment capacity, maintenance and design
• Design of the load
• Load documentation and information
• Operator and engineer training
• Engineering a transport
• Work environment
