Mercedes-Benz Arocs Streamspace ballast semitrailer "Mammoet" (Netherlands / Utrecht)
Following on from the MAN (316934) at the end of 2023, another vehicle in the Mammoet design is now appearing. The Mercedes-Benz Arocs with ballast trailer continues the long series of models from the Dutch global company. Mammoet Holding B.V. was founded in 1971 by the three companies Goedkoop (Amsterdam) Van Wezel (Hengelo) and Stoof (Breda). If you go back to the actual origins, you end up on May 13, 1807. On this Wednesday, Jan Goedkoop bought a 140-ton cargo ship and offered transportation services for freight and passengers. Salvage work and towing services were also carried out. Since the merger into the holding company over 50 years ago, the main area of activity has been heavy transport and crane work. Mammoet does not move mountains, but it does move entire houses (or even churches). The model is a one-off edition.
