Van der Vlist Running Rings Around Europe

Van der Vlist: Rings around Europe

Van der Vlist have been busy moving some 5960mm diameter metal rings across from Germany into the UK recently.

Two 610mm high industrial rings weighing 14,4 tons each were collected from South East Germany and loaded onto tilt frame trailers This meant that the overall transport width was sufficiently reduced that it could move by road into Holland in gauge, so no police escorts were required. The final larger ring was broken down into halves, each 6160mm long, 3080mm wide and 410mm high, weighing in at 5,9 tonnes each. These could therefore be delivered on a flat trailer.

Exceptioneel transport

Once in Rotterdam, the complete rings were transhipped onto semi low trailers, as the road restrictions in the UK are much more lenient. The trailers were then boarded on the ferry for shipment into Immingham where they had all permits applied for and escorts waiting so that they could make their way onwards to Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire to be unloaded.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
