Can we help you with something?

Transport of containers and flat racks

We always strive for the most efficient transport possible. Our technical service staff can dismantle and assemble machines for container transport and secure all cargo with lashing and covering elements. One of our specialties is flat track transport, which offers the efficiency of container transport, along with the ability to carry high, wide or heavy cargo.

Customs and taxation

Our expertise in customs formalities is of great value for our global multimodal transport. We provide overseas customers with fiscal representation and arrange customs declarations for import, export and transit of goods and cargo. Our contacts with various authorities allow us to offer a complete package.

Ro-Ro transport

We arrange roll-on roll-off transport of mobile equipment and trucks to ports all over the world. For cargo transport over water we offer the possibility of maritime transport or inland waterway transport. In cooperation with our trusted partners, we arrange transhipment and onward transport by road.

Rail transport in Europe

We have developed special platforms that allow us to transport out of gauge cargo on existing container rail connections. We are also able to provide swapbodies for in-gauge loads. Van der Vlist is exploring and actively expanding the number of rail-corridors in order to increase rail reach.

Pre-carriage and onward carriage can also be organized by Van der Vlist own equipment, including electrically powered trucks and as well as with  trusted logistics partners who can provide pre-carriage and onward carriage. By using multiple modalities, emissions can be reduced substantially, potentially  up to 85%.
