After the success of the ELT+system in the field of glass transportation, Van Huët introduces the revolutionary ELT++Concept. This new concept increases the loading capacity by 23% without increasing the total weight of the carrier and without exceeding the maximum allowable weight (40 tons in most European countries).
A completely new way of looking to the existing in loader concept has resulted in this spectacular efficiency gain. A typical case of “out of the box thinking”. Transport cost are a substantial part of the cost price of glass and for many years they show an upward trend. This is, amongst others, caused by road taxes, increasing fuel prices and new environmental regulations. In order to compensate for the increasing costs, Van Huët is heavily investing in Research and Development. The goal: reduce transport cost and harmful emissions (CO2) as well as increase the efficiency in the logistics chain by developing new intelligent concepts.
The result: lower logistics costs for our customers and a better environment.
Innovation transport concept makes transportation of unpacked jumbo size glass (600 x 3.21) considerably more efficient and more environmentally friendly.
No empty return trips 10-15% lower transport costs Reduction of harmful emissions Multi-modal No separate glass stillage Zero investment for the shipper Enlargement of sales area The longer the trip, the greater the advantage.

Van Huët Glass Transport is a leading specialist in the European glass logistics and a division of the Emons Group (headquarters located in Milsbeek, the Netherlands). Our vision is that a logistic service provider only has a right to exist in case it delivers added value towards its customers. And this goes far beyond “just” offering the cheapest price per pallet or square meter of transported glass. Also the environmental aspect, the lowest possible CO emission per transport unit, is of eminent importance.
Furthermore, customers expect that their logistics partner to do more than “just” providing an excellent delivery performance: they also require innovative ideas through which the existing performance (the total cost price and CO2 emissions per transport unit) can be even further improved. After all, to stand still is to fall behind. Within the Emons Group this has been self-evident for over 70 years: to strive continuously for even more efficient and sustainable transport. An excellent example is of our self developed ELT++ trailer, that today is already capable to load more glass than any other competitor. And still further improvements can be expected in due course.
