The wheel is transported on eighteen lorries in total. Seven of these lorries are 20 feet containers. Ten lorries are open trailers on which the freight is carefully packed and secured. The last lorry is a closed trailer. It takes a team of specialised workers three days of 24 hours to build up the wheel. Another two and a half day is counted to build it down again.
