road tanker transport
A Mercedes Actros Mp3 dairy tanker combo running for cheese brand Polderkaas. Combos are still pretty popular, you can get everywhere with it. The bulky 30 cube or more road tankers are not usable on every farmyard.
An all-white Volvo FH owned by Slomptrans. White trucks are often used to avoid any costing for a company livery or style. This short sight management is coming from the US. The forgotten issue is the driver and the customer.
A nice Welgro cattle fodder dry bulk combo. The Welgro unit is equipped with two steered axles for optimum manoeuvrability on narrow farmyards. The DAF is equipped with a day cab, this kind of trucks are often using multiple crews per day.
XPO is the new name for the former Norbert Dentressangle organization.The new US owner seems to be a little less aggressive then the old one. The growth of the company certainly slowed down. Its not sure whats the influence of a US management in this.
A nice colourful Dutch manure tanker. The new Scania S series is owned by haulage company Gert Vlastuin. The specific weight of the manure is relatively high, it explains the short building length of the tanker. Axle overload is hardly an issue with its short axle distances.
For products with an average specific weight tipper dry bulk tankers are used most of the time. The non tipping versions are used more for heavier products like cement for instance. This Dutch unit is a tipper owned by Alders Bulk Logistics.
