H.Essers invests in his intermodal fleet

The trailers designed for multimodal transport are equipped with a reinforced chassis frame. Thanks to the gripper edges integrated into the frame, a gripper jaw tarpaulin protection and special axles in a rail design, the Cargo Rail trailers can be loaded onto rail transport.

The floor load-bearing capacity of the trailer is designed to withstand high fork-lift axle loads up to 8,000 kilograms. For optimal load-securing, the VarioFix perforated steel external frame is equipped with 13 pairs of lashing rings, each ring affording 2,000 kg of tensile force. The optional steel pallet limiting rail also features a VarioFix hole pattern. To protect the interior of the front wall from damage in everyday use, it has been fitted with a galvanised steel sheet with a thickness of 2 millimetres and a height of 1,250 millimetres.

With 950,000 m² of warehouse space, a fleet of 1,460 trucks and 3,050 trailers, H.Essers is one of the biggest and most successful logistics service providers in Europe. The company employs more than 5,400 employees at 67 locations in 15 countries in western and eastern Europe.

H.Essers specialises in the transport and distribution of chemicals, pharmaceutical products, healthcare products and high-value goods. The Company also offers transport by rail and ship, in order to keep CO2 emissions as low as possible. From now on, the new Kögel trailers will make their contribution to this.
