Italian fleet invests in Kögel intermodal equipment

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.
