Transportation of bulk cargo directly to the construction site allows to reduce the time between the production of these materials and their use in construction. Moreover, it is easier and more convenient to transport such cargoes than concrete itself or ready-made concrete and reinforced concrete structures.
Barrels, containers, special dense bags are usually used as packaging for the transportation of bulk goods – this container eliminates the spilling of the cargo.Due to the presence of a large number of truck models of all types and from different manufacturers on the market, today customers have a wide range of opportunities to make transportation costs minimal. And the opportunity to entrust the transportation of goods to a single contractor (transport company), provides a significant benefit. Therefore, before making a final decision on how best to organize the transportation of bulk cargo, you should familiarize yourself with the proposals of the carriers.
