A 1,000-ton transporter, which is 23 meters long, 10 meters wide, and features 32 wheel suspensions and 128 tires, came off the assembly line in Hubei on May 22. The production of this new transporter is a testament to China’s mastery of the advanced technology required for producing heavy platform trucks.

The producer, Hubei Sanjiang Space Wanshan Special Vehicle Company, has delivered over 320 heavy-duty transporters to 28 countries and regions in the past 10 years, with carrying capacity ranging from 35 tons to 900 tons. These transporters have been used for bridge construction, shipbuilding and repair, equipment manufacturing, aerospace aviation and more.

The heavy-duty transporter is currently the world’s largest platform truck. The total number of such transporters in the world is less than five. Only Germany and China are able to produce them. 

The transporter will be delivered to its client at the end of May. It will be used for shipbuilding.
