But first he has to go through a cumbersome procedure that has to do with the length and weight restrictions for trucks in Germany: using the hook of the Meiller loading bridge on his Actros, Jacobsen lifts two containers onto a waiting semi-trailer. Then he gives his colleague, who has been waiting for the trailer in his tractor unit, the okay to leave. Jacobsen then loads the third container onto his own truck, hitches up a so-called dolly built by the Danish vehicle manufacturer HFR and follows his colleague in the semi-trailer to Padborg, some twelve kilometres away. Padborg is on the Danish side of the border, and it is here that the Nord-Schrott driver can couple the trailer held ready by his colleague onto the dolly. The result: Jacobsen’s Gigaliner rig now stands there in its full glory, 25.25 metres in length and, with the three fully loaded roll-off containers on board, weighing 60 tonnes.
