Trucks and heavy loads

A great range of trucking books and DVDs covering trucking in the UK, Middle East and North America from the heat of Doha to the cold of Canada's ice roads.

A growing number of our trucking DVDs cover the heavy haulage of abnormal loads in various counties around the world. Heavy lifting of items such as jumbo jets and pipeline sections is hazardous and risky and these films show the steps needed to transport heavy loads safely.
