road tanker transport
Dutch operator Jongeneel is specialized on the transport of industrial gasses. One of its combos wat caught by my camera on the A16 near Moerdijk. The Mercedes is an aged Actros Mp2. The mainstay of their fleet, however, is formed by DAF trucks.
Owner driver Smit trucking is running this Scania Topline as a charter for De Rijke. The Swede is hooked to a non-tipping dry bulk tanker. Dry bulk transport is one of the core activities of the Dutch haulage company. Another important activity is container transport.
Vander Wiel Drachten is running a very diverse fleet. Besides manure transport, see the picture, it's also involved in logging and tipper work. Their fleet has always been a mix of several brands. Volvo and DAF have sold the largest numbers of trucks to Van der Wiel.
A Renault T-series owned by Italian operator Donatiro. Just as many of its competitors it using cheap labour from Eastern European countries. The EC made a huge mistake with its free market policy. Yes, we need a united Europe but also a workable system and simply not whats happening right now.
A day cabbed Scania pulling a two axled dry bulk tanker. The combo is used for distribution of flour for bakeries. This is also explaining the size and the only two axles of the bulk tanker. Bakeries are often located in city centre, bigger units are hardly capable of getting there.
An Iveco Stralis road tanker running on the German B213. The combo is owned by Scholten a lubricants trading company. The combo is distribution lubricants to automotive and industrial companies in northern Germany.
