The construction field is extremely broad and includes various sectors: from the construction of residential buildings, to commercial and industrial construction, which includes industrial manufacturing plants, as well as civil engineering works such as roads, bridges, tunnels, railways, and dams.

GRUBER Logistics has been operating in logistics and transport for the construction industry for more than 80 years, dealing with the transport of all types of building materials, such as prefabricated structures, stone cladding, bricks, thermal insulation panels, earthmoving machines and even more complex machinery such as mechanical cutters.

Your challenges are our challenges:

  • Accessibility of loading and unloading places for building materials, often unsuitable for large vehicles
  • Obtaining special permits to transport building materials, which, due to their weight and size, require abnormal load transport
  • Absolute respect of delivery times to ensure the smooth running of work on the construction sites
  • Availability of vehicles suitable for the safe transport of heavy and bulky materials

Brenner Base Tunnel

The Brenner Basistunnel is the joint Italian-Austrian civil engineering project to bore a railway tunnel connecting Austria to Italy, slated to become the longest tunnel in the world. GRUBER Logistics has worked together with other project partners both on the transport of three tunnel boring machines (TBM) that will be used for the excavation of the exploratory tunnel and the line tunnels, and on handling the components that will be used to assemble the machine inside the tunnel.


The largest of the three machines is 80 meters long and is operated by 15 people. It runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


The less demanding components passed through the Brenner pass and Switzerland. Given the weight and shape restrictions on the German roads up to the construction site, we had to transport the heavier ones first by river and then by sea.


GRUBER Logistics transported the components of the tunnel boring machines, for a total of 2,887 tons.


Once they arrived at the Mules site, the TBMs were assembled again in special assembly chambers inside the Brenner Base Tunnel.

GRUBER Logistics also works in other sectors…
