Cometto, since the early 1950s, has been leading the way in the world of heavy haulage, manufacturing road semitrailers, modular heavy trailers, self-propelled modular trailers (SPMT) and transporters.


It is the preference of first class companies worldwide in the fields of heavy haulage, steelworks, heavy lifting, petrochemical sites, construction, precast and steel beams manufacturers, wind farms, shipyards and drydocks, etc.


High-quality components and innovative technology, flexibility, service and support, delivery and long experience in the field are some advantages granted by Cometto, located in the industrial northwest part of Italy.


Indeed, Cometto is not new to the Middle East markets. It has been selling its vehicles in the region for the last 30 years, concentrating its efforts on working with the biggest players of this niche market.


Key players in heavy duty transport such as Almajdouie in Saudi Arabia, Al Jaber in the UAE and Al Mutahida in Oman have been using Cometto trailers through the years.


Clients such as Dubai Shipbuilding and Drydocks from Dubai are daily operating with shipyard heavy duty transporters especially developed for them.


Cometto has also been successful through the years in other specialised fields such as steel works machines and oil and gas vehicles for the offshore business.

Among Cometto’s modular systems, it is worth mentioning the MSPE modular series. The modularity of MSPE  allows the creation of different configurations of trailers according to any specific loading needs; the advanced electronic system and dedicated Cometto software allow ± 135° steering angle; each of the suspensions is independent and connected to the computer through a dedicated encoder. With these features, the MSPE has the ability to move in every direction, making it possible to successfully complete any sort of move/installation.


The MSPE range grants load capacity up to 60 tons per axle lines (MSPE Evo2) thanks to the high-quality steel frame, specific suspensions type and special tyres designed with the collaboration of a primary brand manufacturer.


This is a great advantage in terms of manoeuvrability, thanks to the smaller quantity of axles needed to move the same payload and, as a consequence, in terms of final costs as well.


Aside, Cometto has developed a full range of power packs featuring different ranges of power and performance. Cometto’s full-hybrid power pack is the first power unit which provides an alternative solution to traditional diesel power systems.


Recently Cometto launched the new brand Cometto HT (Handling Technology) which includes Cometto EMT (Electric Modular Transporter) and Cometto EXSTREAM (Electric Modular Transporter ATEX certified): a new concept in terms of noiseless, zero-emission, safe and clean transports inside buildings and all areas protected from pollution.


EMT and EXSTREAM are fully electric self-loading modular transporters, 100 per cent battery-fueled, designed for inside and outside in-plant use, loading up to 100 t.
