Wide load, small convoy!

Van der Vlist Special and Heavy Transport recently completed a convoy movement comprising of 4 vehicles to move a set of gripper rings for the offshore industry. The pieces were transported from the production plant at Nieuwdorp, Holland through to Wallsend in the UK.

At 5.13 metres wide and 4.03 metres high, 2 and 3 axle low loaders were utilised, pulled by 3 and 4 axle tractor units. The experience of Van der Vlist UK was also called on to organise permits and escort vehicles for the UK leg of the journey.

With over 200 different truck and trailer configurations available, this was a relatively small movement, but as we say at Van der Vlist, no big load is too small!
