Novatech is pleased to be chosen as a valued partner by Airbus, an international pioneer in the aerospace industry and to become a part of the innovative logistic approach, transporting large semi assembled airplane components by sea and intercoastal waterways.

Novatech has provided Airbus with custom-made 3-axle Roll trailers transporting special Airbus frames and to a barge/ Ro-Ro vessels supporting semi assembled plane components. Loading capacity is 30 ton, and length is 16, 5 m.

Airbus has worked closely with logistics provider DB Schenker, to develop a system allowing them to reduce the number of components, transported on public road. This has been done by switching to a more environmental friendly and logistical efficient solution by using a sea and intercoastal ship.

When Airbus decided to change the existing transport solution to a Ro-Ro solution, Novatech was chosen to develop Roll trailers, tailored and manufactured to Airbus needs.

It is a pleasure knowing that Novatech´s Roll trailer solution offers a safe and efficient way of transporting components by ship and barge using sea and intercoastal waterways that satisfy the needs at Airbus.
