A machine has to be transported to a Milan exhibition within three days. The job is done by utilising the Transport Ferry Service vessels plying between Tilbury and Antwerp, connecting London with the Low Countries. This specialised service grew from the use of wartime landing ships for ferrying vehicles to the Occupation Forces in Europe. Now vessels specially designed for a service to Northern Ireland, and later to the Continent, enable commercial loads of all kinds to go by road direct to their destinations overseas. Along with Whitbread takers, Wall's sausages, and computers, the special load is ferried over, and arrives on time, in one piece, ready for setting up on its stand at the exhibition in Milan.
