MA Global Logistics BV has 10 barges ranging from 950 to 4,900 tonnes for inland shipping. The entire inland shipping fleet has a total capacity of 21,000 tonnes. The ships travel the rivers and canals of the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. A combination of deep-sea vessels, time chartered tonnage, pooled tonnage and other owned tonnage allows us to optimize fleet size and meet the changing market demands.
Most of MA Global Logistics BV vessels are self-built. The company’s engineers take the hulls and install the tanks, engine rooms, controls, loading and unloading machines, cargo heating, tank washing systems and all the other facilities required. Everything is specifically designed for the transport of oils, fats and derivatives. MA Global Logistics BV has always used steel and stainless steel for constructing tanks and instruments to ensure higher standards of hygiene, more efficient cleaning and increased product quality. The tanks are fitted with hot water heating.
The tanks are cleaned on the way back from every delivery so that they are available immediately when they reach the next loading port. The high pumping capacity (300 – 600 m3/hour) and design of the tanks ensure fast loading and unloading of cargo. The crews work according to a schedule of one week on, one week off. This means MA Global Logistics BV can guarantee availability 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All vessels are equipped with the latest navigation, communication and computer systems.
Owning over 500 trucks, we can provide both regional as well as international transport. So no matter where your products need to go, we’ll make sure they get there.
Every year, the fleet is expanded with dozens of high-standard new trucks, which are then provided with annual functionality updates by MA Global Logistics BV’s dedicated M&R department.
But that’s not all: we make sure your products are transported in the safest way possible. How? By ordering the best safety options for the trucks. Our one hundred latest Euro 6 trucks have safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), a Lane Departure Warning system, Lane Change Support and Efficient Cruise/I-see.Read more
