The transport of raw materials, in many different shapes and sizes
All manufacturing activities require raw materials. Their nature varies a lot, dependent on the type of activity.
- Natural raw materials (wood, rubber, cotton, rapeseed, etc.), intended for technical uses and transformed into consumer products.
- Mineral raw materials (lime, salt, petroleum, etc.), used in the chemical industry or construction, as well as rocks and aggregates (sand, gravel, clay, etc.).
- Metallic raw materials (aluminium, iron, steel, etc.) for the mechanical engineering, automotive and shipbuilding sectors. Noble metals in combination with copper, tin and semiconductors for the electrical and electronic industry.
- Animal or vegetable foodstuffs (meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, rice, flour, etc.) used directly in the food sector or processed by the agri-food sector (oils, cereals, soya, flour, etc.).
JOST has the appropriate trailers and handling equipment to transport all types of raw materials safely.
