Van der Vlist are transporting various types of trams from Spain to the Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden, utilising specialist trailers. These trailers are equipped with rails and a winch to allow self-loading and offloading of the trams, without the need of crane assistance. Due to the exceptional dimensions transport through Germany and the Netherlands must be undertaken during the night. Transport through Spain and France can be undertaken during the day however must travel via smaller by-roads, with the permits taking approx. 3 months to obtain.
