Efficiently to the end customer
Bitumen containers and bitumen tank trailers are the efficient logistical solution to transport bitumen in bulk to the sites of road constructors. Bitumen is transported to inland destinations through a reliable network of local transporters and forwarding agents. The ERES nv ISO bitucontainers with a capacity of 27 tonnes are easy to handle by a limited workforce, and offer numerous advantages over other logistics systems. Bitucontainers are re-usable and environmental friendly, they are multifunctional as storage and transport. As it is a hot product in bulk, the risk of theft is considerably lower, and the residue is very limited. The reheating on site by gasoil burners, delivered free of charge, is an easy, economical and fast solution. No electricity and additional handling and discharge equipment is necessary. For certain destinations, distribution in insulated tank trailers can be considered.
