500 new tank containers for Van den Bosch


Published on: 01-Dec-2015

Van den Bosch Transporten expands its container fleet with five hundred new 20FT ISO tank containers. The first fifty containers were taken into use last month.
 

The new tank containers will be used for the transport of liquid bulk products between Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Since September 2015 these activities are coordinated by the new van den Bosch Transporten office in Dubai.

Over de past years the container fleet of Van den Bosch has grown considerably as a result of the growing demand for intermodal transport solutions. In the meantime the logistics service provider disposes of over four thousand bulk containers for the transport of liquid and dry bulk products.

The new 20FT tank containers have a capacity of 26,000 litres. The choice for this type of tank container was made because of the possibility to realize optimized payloads. Further the containers have the right number of heating pipes which make it possible to heat the product if and when required.

The new tank containers are produced by Welfit Oddy in South Africa. This production location is well-situated for Van den Bosch as the number of transports from South Africa is increasing rapidly. The first fifty containers will be put into use as of this month and the rest will follow in the months to come.
