The 15.5-ton bell was transported from Innsbruck to Trieste by Gebrüder Weiss as special transport.

Gebrüder Weiss recently transported a 15.5-ton bell from the Tyrolean bell foundry Grassmayr from Innsbruck to Trieste. From there, the bell was shipped to Israel via sea freight.

Measuring almost 3 meters in diameter and so far the biggest out of Tyrolean bell foundry Grassmayr, the bell was for the Greek Orthodox monastery on Mount Tabor in Israel.

The cargo’s dimensions, weight and loading safety were Gebrüder Weiss’ greatest concerns. Already at collection with a low-loader at the bell foundry Grassmayr, a crane had to be used. Shortly after, the bell was loaded on an even bigger low-loader in the heavy cargo hall of Gebrüder Weiss in Hall, as the Grassmayr location simply could not provide enough space.

“For the handling of this gem, qualified employees were on-site to apply special chains and non-slip mats. This way we were able to ensure the transport safety”, said Stefan Pürcher, Sea Freight Manager at Gebrüder Weiss. “We are thoroughly satisfied with the transport process.” Furthermore, Gebrüder Weiss was responsible for the customs clearance procedure.
