- oxidation, etc.
These features will determine the type of vehicle, the required packaging, and the loading procedure.
So, bulk materials include:
- crushed stone;
- expanded clay;
- mineral fertilizers, etc.
Bulk material loading peculiarities
Usually, loading is carried out with the help of special equipment or manually by workers wearing overalls, respirators and gloves. Ally Logistic specialists carefully pour the cargo and level it over the entire area of the car body so that the risk of losing parts of the goods during transportation is minimal.
By the way, as for the international transportation of bulk material, it should be taken into account that the units of weight measurement are changed to hundredweights, ounces, stones, pounds, short or long tons. This point is important to consider in order not to exceed the regulatory load.
