System88 for 10+ years!

Lubbers & Dhatec

Read about the long lasting partnership between Lubbers and Dhatec

System88 in use for over 17 years without needing replacement!

The story with Dhatec begins in 2006 at Wagenborg Nedlift. The company needed a reliable, certified, and safe pipe transport system. The self-made wooden beams with wedges were no longer up to standard at the time. After discussing this with the customer, Robert started looking for alternatives and came into contact with Dhatec…


Tubular transport must be done using System88! Lubbers swears by it. The pipeline industry is a sector where safety is of paramount importance. Lubbers distinguishes itself from the competition by always being able to guarantee this safety. Any task carried out by Lubbers is done with the highest safety standards, and one of the ways to achieve this is through the use of the Dhatec system.

About Robert Schuiling & Lubbers

Robert Schuiling started at Wagenborg Nedlift in 1995 and from 2004 he became responsible for the pipeline transport department. In 2016, the transport division of Wagenborg Nedlift was acquired by Lubbers Logistics Group. Robert still works at Lubbers Projects & Services to this day and holds the position of General Manager of the Pipeline Department.

Lubbers (formally: Lubbers Logistics Group) was founded in 1929 and specializes particularly in solving complex logistical challenges. Regardless of how large, heavy, or dangerous, Lubbers can deliver. Their three main pillars always serve as the foundation for ensuring quality: Fast, Reliable, and above all, Safe!

Most important advantages of Dhatec systems for lubbers are:

The number 1 solution in safety, diversity in applications and ease of use. Applicable to many projects and reusable every time (almost indestructible!). When using wood, the quality deteriorates very quickly because it is often nailed to the floor, which damages the entire truck / train trailer when removing it. With the Dhatec system, you can take it back and immediately use it again for a different diameter.

Economically very attractive.

As Lubbers states, “When you purchase the Dhatec system, you always have something on the shelf which you can start using immediately, keeping you one step ahead of the competition.”

More than just pipes

For both Lubbers and Dhatec, the pipeline industry forms the foundation of the company. However, Lubbers has utilized our Dhatec systems for multiple purposes. They have provided transportation for silos with a diameter of 3 meters, wind turbine blades, and even storage tanks with diameters ranging from 6 to 7 meters.
