Friday Focus: 750-Tonne Haulage Challenge


A video published by Volvo Trucks via YouTube shows Magnus Samuelsson, the world's strongest man, drive its FH16 heavy-duty truck in an effort to pull 750 tonnes of shipping containers, which is said to be one of the hardest challenges in the history of Volvo trucks.

The vehicle features I-Shift crawler gears, which allows haulage operators to pull gross vehicle weights of up to 350 tonnes.

The aim is to pull 40 standard-sized shipping containers, which is the equivalent of 150 elephants and 5 boeing airplanes.

The challenge took place at a ro-ro terminal at the Port of Gothenburg and will test the power of Volvo's new engine.
