Van der Vlist: Office on the move

Van der Vlist recently arranged the transportation of a permanent prefabricated office building from an assembly yard in Moerdijk, to be taken to Antwerp.

The two floored building of total 25m x 7,5m x 7,0m, weighing in total 120 tonnes consisted of 20 separate units which were built up on the manufacturing site. This includes padding and was initially meant to be assembled at its final destination in Antwerp. However, due to restrictions on the chemical site it was destined for, this was not possible, meaning it had to be done at the production location in Moerdijk.

Uitzonderlijk vervoer Rotterdam

The building was transported in two parts, A mobile crane lifted the first building section onto a 10 axle semi low loader, where it could move slowly along the local roads towards Van der Vlist’s terminal facility for transshipment. Once arrived on the quayside, a 500 ton mobile crane then lifted the building onto a barge, where it was secured, as the truck returned to load the second part. With both sections secured, the barge then set sail for Antwerp, where the two parts were installed as on building.

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?
