FLEET

The vehicles in our fleet have an average age of 2.5 years. As our vehicles are always as good as new, have modern equipment and are serviced on a regular basis, we can really minimise unexpected downtime. So you can always count on us!

We provide seamless tracking and tracing with satellite-based communications equipment, state-of-the-art mobile phones, tablets and on-board printers. This, and other equipment, enables us to locate the current position of our vehicles at any time, to print freight papers or emails on-site and to keep you up-to-date.

In addition to this, our drivers are trained at regular intervals on the topic of "secure loading" by certified professionals. Because it is very important to us that the goods entrusted to us are properly secured. As it is also necessary to have the correct "tools" to ensure secure and lawful transportation and not simply the expertise, all our vehicles are fitted with lashing straps, anti-slip mats, edge protectors and dunnage.

Silo transportation
We use special vehicles with cutting edge technology for transporting powder and free-flowing goods. Our tilting tanker trailers have a usable volume of 40 m³ to 66 m³. Regardless of whether it is extremely light and bulky or heavy materials, we have vehicles to suit all requirements.
We place great importance on cleanliness, especially when it comes to tanker transportation. We are aware of our responsibilities and know how important it is to avoid contamination of materials. Therefore, our trailers are fitted with stainless steel fittings and manholes that are particularly easy to clean.

Our tanker vehicles are all equipped with powerful compressors. This ensures that all the material is unloaded quickly and easily. All the compressors are soundproofed to minimise the noise levels during the unloading process. The conveying air is continuously cooled to protect heat-sensitive materials.

Dump trucks
All our vehicles are equipped with roller tarpaulins so that moisture-sensitive goods can also be transported. Our aluminium tipping troughs can be tilted in three directions and have chutes and grain sliders.

Walking floor semi-trailers
Packaged and/or palletised goods can be transported in 36 pallet storage spaces. As both the motor vehicle and the trailer can be tilted backwards and to the sides, these vehicles are also ideal for transporting loose cargo. The spatial separation of both vehicle sections allows different materials to be transported and unloaded. Our walking floor semi-trailers are of course equipped with grain sliders and tarpaulins.


Metal transportation
Thanks to a usable volume of up to 75 m3, bulky goods can also be transported while ensuring high capacity utilisation. Our steel tipping trailers are suitable for both small-sized material and bulky material. Goods that are sensitive to moisture can also be transported by using tarpaulins.

Tautliner
Our tautliners have 34 pallet storage spaces. Loading can take place from both sides, as well as through the rear. In order to secure the load adequately, all vehicles are equipped with a sufficient amount of lashing straps, dunnage, anti-slip mats and edge protectors.

Push floor – Walking floor trailers
With a usable volume of 80 m3, you are guaranteed high capacity utilisation even when transporting light and bulky materials. The semi-trailers can be loaded from above, from the rear or from the side, allowing you to remain flexible. The special feature of these vehicles is the fact that they do not have to be tilted to unload loose materials. This advantage is particularly useful when a tilting vehicle cannot be used due to lack of height (e.g. in a warehouse) or on uneven ground.

Crane unloading / Motorway construction logistics
The crane vehicle can be operated using a remote control unit, without the driver having to be in the immediate vicinity of the vehicle. Our crane vehicles have a boom length of 16 m and a lifting power of 3.2 tonnes. This also makes it possible to load and unload particularly long cargo items.
