ECS is one of Van Hool's biggest customers, and this was recently confirmed by the new order placed for 35 brand new 45 ft. container chassis, specifically customised to its requirements. ECS has chosen to optimally integrate the new container chassis into its existing fleet of some 2,000 container chassis and to keep the number of spare parts to a strict minimum. Van Hool was able to provide a conclusive response to this and thanks ECS for its confidence.
