Port of Hamburg: Loading and shipping
About 20 days below deck on the high seas
Together with 9 other Fendt tractors, the 1000 Fendt 1000 Vario was loaded onto the "Atlantic Sun" at the beginning of 2018. The larger machines and vehicles such as the Fendt 1000 Vario are secured on decks 4, 5 and 6 of the cargo ship.
The captain guides the ship across the Atlantic, taking into account the current weather conditions. Any changes in water levels, storms and icebergs can affect the route in the winter months.
