Every earthworks engineering site generates rubble and requires infill operations to be carried out.
This means that the extracted materials have to be transported using special machinery:

• Road transport: road lorries

• Transport of rocky materials: site dump trucks or special road lorries

• Long distance transport: road lorries

• Transport of large quantities at frequent intervals: site lorries, conveyor

• Transport of loose materials over short distances at frequent intervals: scrapers

• Transport on loose and wet terrain (ruts): multiple-axis articulated dump trucks

• Transport on urban sites in the vicinity of a waterway: barges

• Transport in quarries, tunnels or urban sites: conveyor

• etc....

The choice of vehicle or machine type is determined by all the above parameters and the experience of the firm.
