Bitumen (ATV Asfalt Tank Vervoer)

Asfalt Tank Vervoer (ATV), a subsidiary of Schenk Tanktransport, specialises in the transportation of bitumen and microsilica. Bitumen is transported on behalf of road builders, producers of roofing materials and oil companies and the main areas of operation for our bitumen fleet are the Benelux, Germany and Northern France.

Microsilica is a fine-grain silica which is added to cement to produce concrete with improved compressive and bond strength and abrasion resistance properties. Schenk has a multiyear contract with Elkem Materials of Norway covering the tank storage and transportation of microsilica. This product is transported throughout Europe.
