Sweet Success for Van der Vlist Polen

The team at Van der Vlist Polen has been very active in the Polish Sugar Industry. Two movements from Northern Europe have been recently completed involving every aspect of oversize transport planning and operations.

A dozen pieces of out of gauge production line elements were moved from Holland to Poland. The widest elements were 5.8 metres. A further 6 loads were also moved from Germany to Poland. Again, these were production line elements measuring 16.5 metres long x 5.4 metres wide x 4.2 metres high.

Due to the size of these peices and legislation in Holland and Germany, there were many formal requirements prior to receiving authorisation to carry out the transports. Van der Vlist escort staff had to complete a full survey on both of the routes to ensure the movements were both possible and safe. Both routes also required private and police escorts for much of the route, again to ensure the transport was completed safely.

Karol Zielinski, MD at Van der Vlist Polen highlights the fact that this was a complex project: “because of the width of the loads, there were many considerations. Throughout the route, there were a variety of obstacles such as lamp posts, road signage and other street furniture that needed to be removed and replaced. In addition, there were certain sections of road that even needed modernisation and modification to allow the loaded trucks to complete their journey. We utilised the full team at Van der Vlist Polen and with the hard work of the drivers, escort staff, planners and the technical and dismantling crew, these projects were completed on time and within budget.”

Van der Vlist Polen are currently in the process of finalising a domestic movement of several other 6 metre wide peices for another refinery. If you would like to find out more information about Van der Vlist Poland, please call +48-61-886-2300 or email
