Recently, Aertssen Transport transported a series of cement drums from the West Flanders to the Port of Antwerp. These were no standard cement drums, though; they were immense and very heavy.

The 200-ton cement drums were some 6 metres in diameter and were nearly 20 metres long. So logically, we had to use heavier equipment to transport them. The operation also prompted a fine example of teamwork. Two Terex AC500 cranes loaded the various drums onto our modular trailer, with two 250-ton Mercedes SLTs in pushpull combination. They took the drums from West Flanders right into the Port of Antwerp, where they continued on their journey to the Middle East.
