There are more than 7,000 kilometres of railway track in the Netherlands. A complex and busy network, which also needs to be well maintained at all times. This includes maintenance of the overhead catenary system, rails, sleepers and points. Thanks to years of experience SHVbv has developed into the all-round rail maintenance specialist and we can also help you with the transport of large machines such as aerial work platforms and telehandlers. The success of our ManiRail telehandler has ensured that we now relieve our clients of their rail related undertakings throughout Europe through the renting and trade of railway machinery.
