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

• Load documentation and information
• Operator and engineer training
• Engineering a transport
• Work environment
