Heavy transports, special service

Van der Vlist Speciaal en Zwaartransport is the longest running division of the Van der Vlist Transport Group. With a range of semi low trailers, low loaders and extendible trailers from 2 to 6 axles, and the capacity to move cargo up to 60 tons this division has been the backbone of the business for over 80 years.

One of the more recent movements involved transporting a Terex Demag CC8800 crane from the manufacturer’s factory at Zweibrucken to Antwerp port. The CC800 is a true piece of heavy lift equipment offering a lift capacity of 1600 tons! As you can imagine, machines that can handle this sort of weight are fairly imposing, in fact the total project involved 43 separate transports between the loading and delivery addresses.

With a fleet of 75 trucks and 80 trailers, the workload was well within the capabilities of Van der Vlist Special en Zwaar. With experienced drivers, competent planners and private escort vehicles, you can be sure that your cargo is in good hands.
