Van den Bosch has commissioned three new terminal trucks. Two of the Terberg trucks will be used at the terminal in Bergen op Zoom for the transport of dry bulk. The third will be transporting liquid chemicals from Waalwijk.
The trucks will also carry out local shunting work for Van den Bosch clients. The new trucks are fully equipped with comfort and safety systems and have a clean and durable Euro 6 engine. They will replace the older types with Euro 3 or Euro 4 engines. This means cleaner and more sustainable engines which are better for the environment.
Sustainable investment
As The Supply Changer in Bulk, Van den Bosch sees sustainable investment as an important principle. For example, the terminal at Bergen op Zoom has become an established name over the past twenty years, but development is still in full swing. The terminal is currently in the process of renewing the fleet, and the terminal trucks are part of that process.
Improved comfort
Marinus Voorwinden, site coordinator at Bergen op Zoom, notices a marked improvement in comfort compared with the older trucks:
"Our drivers sometimes have to wait at our clients’ sites, and while waiting they remain in the cabin for safety reasons. The cabin of a terminal truck consists mainly of glass, so you can imagine how uncomfortable it can get in there on a hot summer day. However, the new trucks are equipped with air conditioning. Our drivers can now carry out their work in comfort, and safety is guaranteed."
