They have recently accomplished the transportation of an out-of-gauge electromagnetic drum separator to its destination in Mexico
Kopf + Lübben GmbH, founding Coop member in Bremen, Frankfurt, and Hamburg, Germany, has moved an OOG project shipment consisting of an electromagnetic drum separator from Germany to Mexico. They had to move the cargo urgently to avoid a production standstill.
According to Johan Padding, the Managing Director of Kopf + Lübben, “Under the leadership of Adam Hoffmann, our airfreight team orchestrated a meticulously planned operation to ensure the timely delivery of this critical piece of machinery. Additionally, the sheer weight and dimensions of the magnetic drum posed a formidable challenge, necessitating innovative solutions and close collaboration among various stakeholders.”
The complexity of the project required a multi-faceted approach. Their team not only efficiently coordinated the transportation from the point of origin but also ensured the flawless execution of the delicate loading process onto the freighter in Luxembourg. Moreover, the timely transportation of the cargo was made possible by the team’s strong relationship with the airline, which enabled them to accommodate the client’s unique requirements.
Congratulations to Kopf & Lübben GmbH for the successful execution of this project!

The wagon which had a weight of 16.5 T and dimensions of 1402 x 270 x 401 cm required several special equipment for loading and unloading
Kopf + Lübben Cargo Services, a Coop member in Bremen, Hamburg, and Frankfurt, Germany, has recently carried out the special transport of a decommissioned wagon in Bremen. One of their clients, a project development company from Bremen, recently purchased a decommissioned rail wagon from Deutsche Bahn for a newly planned industrial estate. A former railway station site is being brought to new life as a part of the project and therefore an old wagon will be an eye-catching installation.
The wagon was loaded simultaneously with two mobile truck cranes onto a semi low-loader. In order to place the wagon safely on the trailer, specially-made wheelset pads had to be obtained. For the unloading at the destination, a special trackbed was created on which the wagon was unloaded with a semi low-loader and two simultaneously operating truck cranes.
For the transport, they obtained a special permit from the Bremen authorities in advance under the condition that the transport is only carried out with an escort vehicle and between 22.00 hrs – 06.00 hrs. In the words of Mr. Mike Guttrof, Manager of the road transport department, “Due to the pandemic, three months passed between the request and delivery during which we had to obtain permits, procure the necessary equipment and personnel and coordinate all parties involved. In the end, everything worked as planned and we are watching with interest how the project on the former railway station site develops.”
Congratulations to Kopf + Lübben Cargo Services for the successful execution of this project!
