Italian transport company, Friultrasporti Industriali, has taken delivery of 100 new Kögel Cargo Coil trailers fitted with the Kögel Trailer Axle (KTA).
Friultrasporti transports products including steel, chemicals and paper using ferry connections from Italy to the Iberian peninsula, Greece, Turkey and the Balkans.
According to Kögel, the Cargo Coil trailers feature heavy-duty RoRo equipment to ensure they are prepared for intermodal transport, including a diagonal reinforcement between the side member and external frame, a 10mm closed sliding plate, a 10mm fifth-wheel plate, two suction valves and four pairs of heavy-duty lashing rings with 12t of test force.
The Cargo Coil trailers are fitted with standard Kögel trailer axles KTA, providing easy maintenance, excellent tracking and reliability. The unique “double suspension” of the KTA, made from a soft rubber bearing and a spring steel wishbone, not only enhances the driving characteristics of the trailer, but also reduces wear and tear, says Kögel.
