Dutch heavy transport company, Van der Vlist, recently moved something much different than the usual cargo that often includes rotor blades and big wheels. Additionally, the cargo moved by the company also had a lot more cultural significance. 

The statue of the old Dutch king, positioned at the Buitenhof (outer court) in The Hague, has to make room for a site office and a watchtower while the Binnenhof (inner court) is renovated. The watchtower will be a viewpoint for the public to look at the renovation process. After the renovation, Willem II will return to his spot, but in the meantime, he will stay in storage and undergo some renovations himself.

The monument is estimated to weigh around 2300 kilograms and measures 3.9 metres in height. As The Hague is a strict environmental zone, Van der Vlist deployed its e-truck.
