Flatbed road train (MB) 'Transit Transport'
The cubic combination of the Transit Transport 7111 forwarder
If you bother to run a lorry fleet, run it under the Mercedes-Benz star! Subscribing to this sentiment in the seventies, Flensburg forwarder Transit Transport 7111 dispatched this cubic combination onto the road, gradually replacing the Pullman generation. The two-axle lorry pulled a then typical tri-axle trailer. But there's more: Equally distinctive for Transit Transport 7111 was the blue lorry paintwork and the characteristic identification of the forwarder, which was arranged above the front of driver's cab and has been given a contemporary design by WIKING. Heinrich Peter Petersen founded the forwarding company at the port of Flensburg in 1947, and a new forwarding facility in the Schleswiger Strasse in Flensburg was opened in 1962. Back then, the Millipede was the first trailer combination operated by the Petersen forwarding company - and incorporated into the series by WIKING some time ago.
