High and heavy cargo with a police escort

November 22 - Van der Vlist Poland has recently moved two large pieces of an industrial production line by road from Poreba, Poland through to Hamburg, Germany a journey of around 900 km.

With the pieces being 6.1 m wide, this was not a simple transport, says the abnormal and heavy haulage provider. 

Consultation with the authorities was required resulting in the use of both private and police escorts for the full journey. The width also meant that a detailed route survey was carried out with the acceptable route subject to removal and replacement of street furniture at various points throughout the movement.
