Van der Vlist recently carried out a long journey from central Europe, all the way out to Saratov in South-Western Russia. The job involved taking two large 15 ton silos as well as three trucks full of parts.

The three tilt-trucks carrying parts for the silos drove straight through to the destination, with all documents pre-arranged, ensuring a smooth passage through multiple countries, all the way through without having to wait for customs clearance at any borders.

However, due to the 18m length, 3,6m height and 3,3m width it would have worked out as very expensive to also take the silos themselves directly there.

The cheapest way to move them for the client was therefore to go the 1,000km by road to the North of Germany, to be loaded onto a ferry and shipped across to St Petersburg, where Van der Vlist’s Russian office arranged the 1,600km transport down to Saratov.
