DRUNEN – The Finnish logistics service provider RL TRANS just like many other transport companies has been through a development in which the purchase of our mobile bulk truck loader Dino is almost a given.
As an extra service to their client the company is now arranging the storage and transhipment of bulk goods and a Dino is a perfect solution for this. “We are very satisfied with the performance of our Dino”, says Andreas Lindedahl, Market Manager at RL TRANS.
Last year RL TRANS completed a bulk terminal for the storage and transhipment of bulk goods. As soon as a client receives an order from the transport company, RL TRANS can load the client’s packed bulk goods already present directly into trucks and drive them to the destination.
Bigger capacity in Finland
“We are increasingly being asked whether we can deliver bulk goods packed for example in big bags. This led us to look for a way of quickly loading big bags into our bulk trucks”, explains Lindedahl.
The maximum weight for trucks is higher in Finland than in other EU States. A truck may in fact weigh 76 tonnes there. “We can therefore get 53 tonnes into a silo truck”, says Lindedahl. “The transhipment then soon becomes a time-consuming and expensive job. We were therefore looking for a machine with a high capacity and a fast loading time.”
Quick loading of bulk trucks and product changes possible
RL TRANS therefore chose the Dino DS400 with loading bellows and a capacity of 90 m³/h. The DIno can be used to fill 53 ton into the extra-large bulk trucks within 2 hours.
Because of regular product changes the machine/loader had to be able to cope with different bulk products with different flow properties. The fact that the Dino is easy to clean so that it can quickly change between different bulk goods, was therefore a decisive factor here.
Helpful from start to finish, and afterwards
Lindedahl landed up with the Dino after an internet search and contacted Van Beek. “From the first inquiry the people at Van Beek were very professional and helpful and, since the sale, that is still the case.”
“The pleasure was entirely mutual”, says Roel Kneepkens, sales manager at Van Beek. “We think that good follow-up is very important because we like satisfied clients. Clients are entitled to a properly operating installation, and a satisfied client is the best ‘ambassador’ for Van Beek.”
