HAZCHEM: INSIGHTS FROM OUR LEADERS
With over 35 years’ experience in the transportation industry, we’ve learned a lot about transporting various types of cargo. From food and beverages, to pharmaceuticals, sanitiser, fertiliser and more – we’ve seen it all, and we’ve moved it all. We also understand that some products require a little more care than others, especially when they fall into the category of Hazchem.
In South Africa, the legislation around the transportation of Hazchem products is incredibly strict, and it’s therefore essential that you find a trusted partner with trucks that are fully compliant. A partner like Elite.
“At Elite Truck hire, we pride ourselves on ensuring the highest customer satisfaction,” says Hennie Verster, GM: Sales and Marketing. “We therefore we go out of our way to have Hazchem vehicles available across the country within our diverse fleet.” And he’s not wrong. Elite Truck Hire offers a wide range of trucks to meet almost any need in the marketplace – from light delivery vehicles to trucks up to 14 ton.
“Over the years we have built up a large fleet of Hazchem compliant vehicles to support the needs of a wide variety of companies moving hazardous goods,” says Byron Corocoran, CEO of Elite Truck Hire, also weighing in on the topic. “In fact, we even have vehicles for specialist industries such as medical waste.” This is just another way we tailor our services to suit our clients’ needs – and we will continue doing so for years to come.
Please note that, while we can transport filled gas bottles on the back of a dropside truck, we do not have tankers that transport gas. For more information on the types of hazardous materials we transport, get in touch with us today.
