New MAN trucks for Sloten BV

The introduction of the first of three new MAN trucks at the site of Sloten BV – producer of calf milk replacer - gave reason for a celebration. The trucks of Van den Bosch Transporten are used for the transports of milk and whey powder between the factories in Sloten and Deventer. 

Sloten BV produces Sprayfo calf milk replacer. The company plays a leading role in developing and supplying innovative young animal feed. Sloten is part of Nutreco and worldwide active in more than 50 countries. 

Dedicated transport
For over twenty years Van den Bosch Transporten and Sloten work together. The transport between Sloten and Deventer is organized by means of three dedicated trucks that are deployed seven days a week. On top of this Van den Bosch executes several container transports to Italy. 

New trucks
Two fixed combinations in the colors of Sloten and one combination in Van den Bosch colors are running between the two factories. Recently the first new truck was festively introduced by technical director Steffen Rouwers of Sloten BV and Business Unit Manager Barry Gruijters of Van den Bosch Transporten. The second and third truck will follow shortly. 

Maximum payload
The new trucks are equipped with weighted axes and they are ‘ultra light’ in order to further optimize the payload. These developments allow a payload of well 35mt. The trailers are equipped with widespread axes for a maximum payload. The configuration of the lids is completely tailored to the loading location in Sloten in order to realize a minimum loading time.
