The right facilities are crucial for a safe and efficient road shipment. For you as a customer and for ourselves as ‘Bolk people’. But naturally also for all road users. That is what we mean by ‘Quality without compromises’. In order to perform our function as both forwarder and carrier as effectively as possible, we have all the facilities in-house. We consider that to be important. We are proud of this. And that makes us unique. Read further to learn more about all our facilities.
Clean and well-maintained equipment is the calling card of our company. That is also part of what we mean by ‘quality without compromises’. Our washing hall, which has a full-time staff, will help you with this. We wash and take care of all common vehicle combinations quickly and expertly using high-pressure steam cleaning with demineralised water and a brush machine. And not only our own vehicles either - because our washing hall is available to everyone.

We have a tyre pressure measurement system installed at our site on the Plesmanweg. Correct tyre pressure means that our fleet has less tyre wear and lower fuel consumption. The system works very quickly and easily. The vehicle registration number is recorded by a camera system. The driver passes the sensors slowly. He or she then reads the tyre pressure from the screen. If necessary, the tyre can be pumped up using the compressors on site.
We have a height indicator installed at our site on the Plesmanweg. This height indicator uses laser scanning technology. The complete combination passes the hight indicator and is scanned at 15 km/hr. A display shows the current and highest measurements. The height indicator provides the drivers with precise measurements for all types of loads. In this way, the driver can stay within the legally prescribed dimensions.
The height indicator is located on the same route as the tyre pressure measurement system. So these two essential procedures are combined efficiently. Because quality and safety are our main concerns.
Our site on the Plesmanweg also has a ‘mirror adjustment aid’ on the road surface. This lets our driver adjust the various mirrors so they work correctly. So he or she has optimal vision around the combination before taking it back onto the road. Just like the camera fitted to most of our cars, this improves safety on the road.
