1. The bagged cement is mainly used in sites without dedicated mixing stations and storage bins.
The disadvantages are large dust, low efficiency, and significant harm to the human body. Additionally, they involve a lot of packaging work for transportation and unpackaging for use at their location.
All these processes also increase the overall cost of the cement. Although applicable for small projects, they may not suffice for extensive construction works.
2. Bulk cement. A bulk cement trailer can carry more than one hundred tons of cement.
The cement gets pumped through cement pipes by compressed air to a cement silo at the site.
The main advantage of this transportation mode is that it is well SEALED hence will not leak. More than that, it offers easy transportation means, especially for big projects requiring vast cement volumes.
3. In addition to ordinary bagged cement, there is yet another form of the bag: one ton of packaging.
It is all handled by forklifts or cranes, not through manual means. It also avoids problems such as large amounts of dust. However, it is inefficient since it does not offer an optimum solution for different cement needs and requirements.
4. In small-packaged bags of cement.
Where it is not possible to use such a large amount of cement in some projects, small-packaged bags are used.
For example, if you want to build a pool at home, you need to use small packaged bags of cement. This ensures that there is no cement spillage and dust. Most importantly, it is easy to use.
WHAT SHOULD YOU TAKE NOTE OF WHEN TRANSPORTING BULK CEMENT?
Bulk goods require a lot of care to ensure safe transportation without incurring any loss or attracting additional costs that could otherwise have been avoided.
Cement is a significant product, and for that matter, an expensive one whose mixture with concrete helps construct solid structural members.

THE ADVANTAGE OF CEMENT TANK TRAILER IN BULK CEMENT TRANSPORTATION
The cement tank trailer is a tank trailer used to transport powdered products.
The vehicle comprises a specially designed chassis, tanker, pneumatic piping system, and cargo discharging units.
This type of trailer is used to carry powdered cargo, and cement is one of them. It is well-customized to ensure bulk cement’s safe transportation and delivery from the production factory to the desired destination.
Generally, the tanker trailer is designed to take up any powered product with particle diameters of less than 0.1mmm.
The demand for cement and volumes needed for different construction projects warrants a massive transportation vessel like a tank trailer.
For easy and faster movement of cement within and from a manufacturing factory, cement warehouse, and construction sites, this is the type of vessel you need.
Practically, the time to package and discharge the cargo is highly reduced. More than that, there are also cost benefits that come with using a powdered/cement tank trailer.
It is the best vessel for carrying bulk powder cargo such as cement. Ideally, the tanker is not designed to transport one type of product.
When not using it for cement transportation, it can be used to transport powdered products such as sugar, lime powder, flour, lime powder, chemical powders, fly ash, stone powder, and mineral powder.
