Austrian transport business Nothegger Transport has just purchased thirty new Kögel Cargo Rail trailers to reduce the company's carbon footprint.
The forwarding company has displaced 50 million kilometres per year from road to rail to reduce CO2 emission by 40,000 tonnes, and the dual purpose Kögel Cargo Rail seemed to be just the right vehicle for that job.
The vehicle's chassis frame is reinforced to withstand multi-model traffic has been fitted with a coupling plate with 2″ kingpins in conformity with German standard DIN 74080 / ISO 337.
The gripper tarpaulin protection made of aramide fabric and a foldable under-run guard make the Cargo Rail loadable to railway systems. Kögel Cargo Rail has been designed for loading to pocket wagon of type 1a.Thus, it can be used flexibly on all conventional railway transport wagons.
A raised centre distance permits loading by crane and like all Kögel vehicles, the entire vehicle frame of Kögel Cargo Rail is also protected against corrosion permanently by dip-paint coat (KTL) nano ceramic coating technique and subsequent paint finish.
Given a robust chassis with a tare weight starting from 6,680kg, the rail-loadable cargo promises generous payload reserves.
