The VLG plant has more than three shredders, a stone crusher and all kinds of screening machines with which the company produces different types of so-called residual fraction. Together with her husband, Gorik Van Lathem, she manages the family-run company with roots going back to That was when her parents founded a transportation company and many of the then customers from the construction sector are still customers today. A basis, which by degrees, was perfectly complemented by the recycling of construction and demolition waste. Thus wood, for example, is granted a second or third life as chipboard, plywood or medium-density fibreboard and finally even a fourth life as fuel. Most of the trucks at VLG Trans are equipped with a hydraulic crane and a grabber for deliveries to road construction sites, demolition work and excavation operations. VLG uses trucks with container lifting systems to pick up and remove waste at construction sites. VLG Logistics deals mainly with the supply of material and equipment to construction sites for civil engineering projects. VLG Logistics also specialises in the transportation of abnormal loads for which an escort is unnecessary.
