Transporting and delivering asphalt is a delicate business: the mix, which is at a temperature of around 180 degrees, is susceptible to wind; too much oxygen and temperature losses can ruin its quality while on the road.

Large manoeuvring areas for deliveries are a luxury that construction site logistics specialists can only dream of.
