Van der Vlist starts home base expansion
Dutch exceptional road transport specialist Van der Vlist is expanding in its home country with a new office and workshop to facilitate the company’s growth.
The company bought the new terrain of 20,000 square meters in Schelluinen-West, close to its headquarters in Groot-Ammers, back in 2017. Since then, several of Van der Vlist’s business units have used temporary office spaces and portacabins to continue their work while the area was being further developed.

The new office and workshop are expected to be finished by the end of the year and, once finished, will accommodate Van der Vlist Special and Heavy Transport, Van der Vlist Modular Transport and Vander Vlist Logistics. The new workshop will be occupied by Van der Vlist Technical Services, which services Van der Vlist’s 250 truck and trailers and other equipment.
