BULK CARGO TRANSPORTATION
The fast, safe delivery of bulk cargo strategically supports the development and formation of many major industries, from agricultural to chemical. For 25 years, AsstrA Group customers have been benefiting from organizational services supporting international bulk cargo transportation with specialized vehicles. Bulk cargo tank trucks a.k.a. silo trucks, moving floor semi-trailers, dump trucks, and grain trucks are commonly used for this type of transportation.
BULK CARGO CHARACTERISTICS
Bulk cargo includes homogeneous bulk substances divided into two groups:
- food products including flour, salt, sugar, crops, dry milk whey, and malt, and
- non-food products including sand, gravel, talc, polypropylene, polymers, anthracite, and metal.
In this category some dangerous cargoes can also be found like manure, silica, sodium carbonate, and calcium carbonate.
Transportation of such substances requires compliance with multiple regulations. Thus, bulk substances cannot be loaded above the sides of the vehicle and should be distributed evenly across the vehicle body. While the vehicle is moving, the cargo is covered with material that does not allow spillage. Cooperation with trusted transport partners from the European Union and the CIS guarantees safe, on-time delivery for cargo regardless of its destination.
