Roll-iT reaches new peaks with SCHEUERLE Self-Propelled Modular Transporters

Roll-iT from Stabroek, Belgium is a co-partnership of Aertssen Kranen (Aertssen Group) and Ivens Transport & Kraanbedrijf (Ivens Group), two players in the construction, transport and crane rental sectors. The company said it has been steadily acquiring more SPMT axle lines since 2007, and business is continuing to boom.

“Last week was the busiest week since our start with SPMTs. For three of the five days, we had 168 axles on the move, of which 104 where rented to various parties. The standardization of the SCHEUERLE SPMT gives us the flexibility to react to the increasing demand that we are currently facing,” said Tom van Runckelen, Account and Project Manager at Roll iT.

“Roll-iT is a perfect example for what happens when entrepreneurialism, expertise and the right equipment are combined strategically,” added Bernd Schwengsbier, Managing Director of TII Sales. The Roll-iT success story continues as the company continuously expands its possibilities to offer its customers the capability to handle bigger, more challenging and bulkier loads, even when space is at a premium: Roll-iT has just ordered 24 axle lines of SCHEUERLE SPMT Split, a SPMT version that can be divided in half to form three-file combinations for accommodating transportation routes with restricted space conditions.
