Multimodal specialist makes sweet investment

Dutch dry bulk intermodal specialist Broekema Bulk bv is to invest €1.2 million to enhance its fleet.

Specialising in the food & non-food sectors, the Nederweert- (Netherlands) based company increased its fleet to 300-plus silo tank containers and 40 road silo tankers last year. This included 35x 30ft LAG lightweight sugar containers for the food fleet together with new lightweight 30ft tipping chassis which are also manufactured by LAG. There were also some additional 61cbm LAG road silo tankers introduced as part of Broekema Bulk’s ongoing replacement policy.

They will now increase the fleet in 2016 with an additional 15x 30ft LAG silo tank containers for additional bulk sugar movements plus 33ft LAG tipping chassis and two 40ft LAG tipping chassis together with 10 new LAG 61cbm road silos.

The LAG aluminium lightweight tipping chassis are fitted with several safety features for unloading as well as having discharge manifolds on the side of the chassis. The lightweight sugar tank containers have a tare weight of 2,000kg to offer a beneficial payload.
