Depending on the type of materials, their own transportation rules apply:
Bulk. Dump trucks are used to deliver such materials. This technique independently solves the problem of unloading. Excavators or loaders are used to load sand or crushed stone. If dry mixes or cement are supplied in packaging, they are loaded on pallets or manually (several bags). When transporting building materials over long distances, pawns must be additionally protected with waterproof film.
Fragile. To reduce the percentage of broken tiles during transportation, they are packed in cardboard boxes. Bricks are loaded on pallets. Transportation of loose bricks in a dump truck is also permitted. But in this case, you need to be prepared for the fact that during loading and unloading a certain amount of brick will fail.
Heavy loads. Precast concrete products and metal structures are transported on special trawls. If such structures are oversized, then their transportation must be coordinated with local authorities and the traffic police.
Perishable. Ready-made mortars harden quickly. To prevent this from happening, a special technique is used that has a hopper design that prevents hardening. In winter, plasticizers are added to liquid concrete and other mixtures to prolong the setting time of the material. Concrete and asphalt are transported by vehicles that can keep them warm.
Typically, construction materials are transported over short distances. After all, it is more expedient to produce them at the point of use. But expensive, branded materials, such as tiles, granite, marble and others, can be safely delivered anywhere in the world. Of course, subject to transportation rules.
