2024 Awards Finalists


WINNER: Wagenborg Nedlift B.V.

In July 2023, Wagenborg Nedlift transported two large storage tanks, known as bullets, from the inland quayside in Urmond in the Netherlands to the Chemelot Geleen industrial estate. A distance of just 3 miles, the convoy drove right through the village of Urmond and crossed the Netherlands’ busiest motorway, the A2.

FINALIST: Fagioli S.p.A

The SPMT transport of a 507-tonne turbine and a 378-tonne generator from the port to the new Komotini power station was a challenge of the highest order. Fagioli’s team reinforced several bridges and built bypasses along the 67-kilometre route which required great skills from the SPMT operators on gradients of up to 14% and narrow local roads. 

FINALIST: Hareket Heavy Lifting and Project Transportation Co.

Hareket has completed the largest and heaviest transport project in Turkey to date: the loading of an 11,350 tonne ship from the shipyard onto a floating dock. This was a masterpiece of SPMT transport, using 384 axle lines and 9 power packs, with several challenges such as  assembling the trailer combinations and manoeuvring the 220 metre long vessel in the narrow yard. 


The construction of a new metro station required relocation of the famous Monument of the Combatants of Haute-Garron in Toulouse. The Sarens team took up the challenge, as the 1,676 tonne but fragile monument stood directly above a metro tunnel in the middle of the busy and cramped city center.
