Van den Bosch takes next step in food safety

Van den Bosch has bought 200 new 40FT pressurised containers for the transport 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.

“With the purchase of these new containers, Van den Bosch takes the next step in the area of food safety and quality”, states Barry Gruijters, Operations Director Dry Bulk at Van den Bosch. “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 every detail of the new containers. The combination of materials and the design is what makes these containers so unique. In every aspect special attention was given in terms of the usage of certain materials, cleanability and the safety of the product during transport or (interim) storage. “Our customers are looking for a high level  of (food) quality and safety. That is why we at Van den Bosch combine the use of these new high quality containers with full insight into the transport and the history of the container via our recently launched customer portal FreightInsight”, Gruijters explains.

Protection Outlet Box
The new 40FT pressurised containers are, including other elements, equipped with a Protection Outlet Box, which is a leading technical innovation. This Protection Outlet Box 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 unpleasant filth, but also prevents contamination of the box, improves sealing and ensures that the load unit is less sensitive for sabotage. Gruijters is excited: “Our customers are very enthusiastic about these new containers. Thanks to the unique combination of specifications, we are taking (food) safety and quality in intermodal bulk logistics to a higher level.”

The new 40FT silo containers are produced and delivered  by LAG, located in Bree, Belgium. At the moment the new containers are delivered and fully operational.
