One of our specialities is flatrack transport, which offers the efficiency of container transport, along with the ability to carry high, wide or heavy cargo. This project for Sany was another successful example of our complete full-service package.
The Van der Vlist team loaded 23 flatracks and two 20ft containers for Sany at two locations in Antwerp. These were then shipped on a 135-meter-long barge to the Van der Vlist Moerdijk Terminal. Directly after arrival, unloading and lifting commenced with our own port crane. Thereafter, the Van der Vlist team took care of further unlashing and unloading of the machines from the flatracks.
After unloading, the machines, each weighing 20–40 tons, were transported to their parking spots. The highest priority machines went directly into our workshop for the PDI process. Meanwhile, the empty flatracks were stacked unto each other to be returned to the empty container depots.
The Van der Vlist team took care of all the aspects of this project: the loading, shipping, lifting, unloading of the flatracks, unlashing, unloading of the machines, storage, PDI and returning the empty flatracks. The van der Vlist team managed to complete the challenge of unloading all flatracks swiftly and safely. Within a day, the machines were in their appointed place and the flatracks were back in the harbour. Another job well done, that is the power to care!
