You mean "carry parts to Toulose for assembly" ?
Anything that doesn´t fit into a Beluga should be considered too outsized. And there´s limit on how big in terms of diameter an airframe can be economically built and operated.

OTOH, just in case the "Cargolifter"-blimp wouldn´t have been shelved, it might have had found a rôle in transporting A380-segments ...
