Logistics service provider Van den Bosch has bought 200 new 40 ft pressurised containers for the transportation of dry bulk products for the food industry. The new silo containers are equipped with a protection outlet box: a leading technical innovation which is unique in intermodal bulk transport.
Barry Gruijters, Operations Director Dry Bulk at Van den Bosch, said: “With the purchase of these new containers, Van den Bosch takes the next step in the area of food safety and quality […] The technical specifications have been defined in close cooperation with clients and suppliers. A number of these specifications are unique within the intermodal transport of food products.”
(Food) safety and quality
The importance of (food) safety and quality are captured in the entirety of the new containers. Special attention was given in terms of the usage of certain materials, cleanability and the safety of the product during transport or (interim) storage.
Gruijters explained: “The company’s customers are looking for a high level of (food) quality and safety. That is why Van den Bosch combines the use of these new high quality containers with full insight into the transport and the history of the container via its recently launched customer portal FreightInsight.”
Protection Outlet Box
The new 40FT pressurised containers are equipped with a protection outlet box, which is a leading technical innovation. This offers full protection of the butterfly valve and outlet (the blind cap included). Both are in direct contact with the product. The box not only protects against dirt, but also prevents contamination of the box, improves sealing and ensures that the load unit is less sensitive for sabotage.
