Van der Vlist Tackle the Ice in Russia’s Ulyanovsk

Van der Vlist recently helped in the project to build a new car tyre manufacturing facility in Ulyanovsk, south western Russia.

They were asked to arrange for some equipment in boxes measuring up to 3,75m long, 2,72m wide and 1,69m high to be moved to the construction site from the port of St Petersburg. As they were shipped in by flatrack from Japan, the best solution was to bring the boxes the short distance from the port to Van der Vlist’s St Petersburg facility, needing 6 trucks in total.

Once at the depot, a 50 tonne mobile crane unloaded the flat racks and lifted the cargo, weighing around 8 tonnes per box back onto the 3 axle low loader, which once secured could make it’s way down to the site in Ulyanovsk.

The journey was through some icy and snowy weather, as Van der Vlist’s Russian office is well used to dealing with, temperatures on the route were as low as -30°C. The cargo arrived for a smooth unloading after it’s 1 600km journey to the factory site.

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?
