b. GRIM company, largely filled by mobilisable subunits that had fulfilled their active-duty period in Staff and Staff Company, 105 Transport Battalion between four and twenty months prior to mobilisation.1 3

These nine heavy transport companies would together employ 285 requisitioned semi-trailer trucks with roll loader crane to transport ammunition from storage facilities in the Netherlands to the ammunition supply points of 1 (NL) Corps in West Germany. To accommodate an estimated average ammunition consumption of some 2,300 tons per day, some 120 trucks would resupply the ammunition supply points each day. The requisitioned trucks, in Dutch referred to as "steenauto's", were used in the civilian construction industry to transport bricks and other heavy building materials; they had a capacity of twenty tonnes or more.2
