Italian company Fercam has placed an order for 93 ‘Cargo Rail’ trailers made by German company Kögel.
Specially designed for multimodal transport, Kögel’s Rail model can boast a reinforced chassis frame with integrated ‘gripper edges’ to allow for seamless on and off-loading on a rail wagon.
The new Fercam equipment is also equipped with upward folding and lockable steel under-ride guards as well as aluminium air tanks.
“With the new rail-loading Kögel trailers, Fercam is not only replenishing its vehicle fleet, but also making a significant contribution to environmental protection,” Kögel said in a media statement.
“The road-rail combination makes it possible to optimally utilise both the system-specific benefit of the railway on the main route and that of the truck's flexibility for pre-carriage and onward carriage, resulting in a considerable reduction in CO2 emissions.”
Based in Bozen in South Tyrol, Fercam is known is one of the lagest family-managed transportation and logistics companies in Europe.
