Equipment for Aerospace transport

Our trailers have several built-in propulsion, pushing, pulling, and lifting systems enabling us to put pieces weighing up to 30 tons directly from our trailers onto the high loader of the aircraft. We also operate trailers that have a ‘self-load’ capability; enabling us to safely lift engines, deploy the castors, and then locate the engine onto the bed of a deep loader. Engines are chained down, fully encapsulated with our own tarpaulins, and prepared for the journey. Ideal for AOG repatriations from locations with poor ground handling facilities.
Other trailers have onboard lifting systems that enable us to raise the engine, install shock mounts and prepare for road movement.

Our staff are well trained and motivated

We can tailor our service to suit exactly what our customer may require and we can do all this at very short notice and on a 24/7 basis.

In short, Jan de Rijk Logistics has the staff, equipment, infrastructure and experience to carry out engine transportation movements across Europe to a service level that surpasses our competitors, whilst giving our customers peace of mind and confidence that when working with Jan de Rijk Logistics, the overall operation becomes a true team effort.
