“The box body of the Kögel Box consists of 20-millimetre-thick plywood composite panels with GFRP coating. The smooth GFRP surface makes the sides highly impact-resistant. They are also easy to clean.
“The 40-millimetre-thick insulated roof, produced in-house, comes with a high-quality, advanced and highly insulating special foam that is 100 percent CFC-free. Four interior LED lights integrated in the roof provide adequate lighting inside the dry freight box body, with switches on the control panel.
