Transporting cable reels

A typical high volume cargo for Van der Vlist in the UK is the transport of cable reels or drums. These are regularly transported to and from various locations around Europe, on the back of the Van der Vlist fleet.

From use in the construction of stadiums to the oil and gas industry, these reels carry a number of different types of wire rope and cable. The items themselves vary from a 3.5 metre diameter empty reel weighing 5 tonnes, all the way to a reel with a diameter of 4.5 metres full of cable, weighing 90 tonnes.

Due to this variety in size and weight for this type of cargo, each transport has to be done on an individual basis. With equipment ranging from semi low trailers and euro low loaders, to special vessel bridges from the modular fleet, Van der Vlist have the specialist trailers to meet the variety of dimensions for these loads.

One of the most important parts of the process for getting the reels delivered is the knowledge and experience of the Van der Vlist staff, meaning that they are able to deal with each cable reel on an individual basis, and provide bespoke transport solutions to suit that specific job.
