Van der Vlist are in the process of moving some large shipbuilding parts across Europe, from the eastern border of Romania, all the way into Rotterdam.
The project involves the movement of 16 large metal pieces, weighing around 15 tons each. Over a period of around a month they are moving them on low loaders across Europe. The low bed trailers are required due to the cargo’s height of 420cm, and given the diameter of up to 502cm, each piece has to be carefully loaded and unloaded by overhead crane.
The long journey through the continent required multiple permits and escorts, in line with the regulations in each of the 5 countries that the load passes through, which are all set in place for a smooth movement over the 3 000 km journey.
