Containerize instead of trucking!
Containerizing your dry bulk cargo shipments and sending by short sea container vessel and/or barge combinations has many benefits over traditional trucking solutions. Conveyor belts for loading and tipping chassis at destination allows for a very smooth and speedy handling process. The need for an extra step of Big Bag loading can be eliminated, risks for damages to cargo and loading may be reduced, and most importantly transport costs can often be substantially reduced. So, give this method a try – you may be surprised!
With a broad network of European suppliers and partners, G-Solutions can provide our bulk clients with solutions from almost all main areas of large-scale dry bulk cargo production in Europe. Areas such as the Ruhr region in Germany and the ports of Bilbao and Gijon in Northern Spain are regions where we have particular presence, but we have options available for almost any request.
Swapping from traditional trucking alternatives to our short sea options on the European waterways will considerably lower your carbon emissions. Add to this the elimination of packaging material/Big Bag handling and disposal, and you will realize that by containerizing your bulk cargo you will be doing mother nature a favor.
