A company specialising in innovative side loader systems, VDL Translift has more than half a century’s experience as a manufacturer of waste collection vehicles. It has an extensive range of collection solutions, making waste collection hugely efficient and improving productivity.

In 1966, VDL Translift launched the first vehicles to have a demounting system. Waste collection is automated by means of their innovative side loader systems, resulting in greatly improved working conditions and greater safety. In addition, a special chain system and an IES container can be used to separate the collection and transportation of compacted waste. Over the years the IES collection system has led the way as the international standard in the waste collection and transport market.

The VDL Translift facility, in Dronten, Netherlands, is where all stages of the product creation and sales processes take place, from development and engineering to production, assembly, marketing, sales and after-sales. VDL Translift is represented in the UAE by Al Naboodah Group Enterprises for all sales and after-sales support.

The VDL Translift collection systems are distinguished by their modular design, which makes it possible to provide a suitable system for every collection method and any deployment situation. In addition to a demountable body or fixed body, the loading method can also be changed easily thanks to the modular construction of the sideloader system.

The Integrated Environmental System (IES) collection vehicles are designed to collect waste from all common standard-size bins, bags and underground containers. This body variant with demountable system can be broken down into three elements: collection, transfer and transport.

The Fixed System (FS) uses the same modular design and can be fitted with any of the VDL Translift loading modules. This means that the collection and efficiency benefits of the sideloaders are now also available to users who cannot deploy a logistics solution.
