The 2BEE-concept is a good example of "Best Emons Efficiency". The hydraulic system that is normally used inside a regular inloader has been removed and the glass is now being secured directly onto the glass stillage using a patented load securing system.
28,0 tonnes glass 25% CO2 reductions Aluminium glass inloader Mixed load Safe fixation / TÜV certification 40% less glass damage Up to 30% total cost reduction Patended concept
Transloader combines glass transport and general cargo
We developed a unique and sustainable concept; the Transloader, a glass inloader for glass transport and general cargo. By using a foldable glass stillage it becomes possible to employ two types of transport. Glass in one direction and general cargo in the other direction. This is a completely new and patented concept!
25,2 tonnes glass 60% CO2 reductions 13,6m aluminium glass inloader Safe fixation / TÜV certification Combination glass / general cargo 10-15% reduction on transport costs Patended concept
This concept expands the loading capacity by 23% without raising 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 at the existing inloader concept has resulted in this spectacular efficiency gain. A typical case of “thinking out of the box”. Transport costs 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 costs 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!
