Ro-Ro-Ready machines

Van der Vlist UK has been traditionally involved in import and export of heavy and oversized cargo. A lot of the transports are for second hand mobile machinery that is shipped ro-ro from the UK to the continent.

It is more and more common for shipping lines to refuse shipment of second hand machines, particularly tracked excavators and crushers as they tend to be covered in mud and concrete.

Over the last few years, colleagues at our depot in Hull have become experts in cleaning these machines and making them “ro-ro ready” for the shipping lines. This is offered as a standalone service or as part of our transport offering. In addition to our cleaning activities in Hull, we clean machines in Moerdijk, Groot-Ammers and Zeebrugge.
