Singapore-based business, Bok Seng Logistics, has taken delivery of two semi-trailers to gain advantages in low-maintenance axle tech in combination with a high axle load and extremely low loading height.
The new Goldhofer »MPA« 8 units will support Bok Seng Logistics’ lifting and heavy haulage operations.
“We are convinced that the two eight-axle trailers with the MacPherson axle technology are a perfect fit for our logistics portfolio,” said Bok Seng Logistics Senior Director, Teo Vincent.
The »MPA« 8 provides an axle load of 15.6 tonnes per axle line according to Goldhofer. Each vehicle can handle operations with a total weight of more than 150 tonnes.
“They can carry high and wide loads with unit weights of up to 120 tonnes as well as long and heavy items such as concrete trusses and bridge elements – thanks to a 10.8m loading deck extension for a total length of 25.3m,” the OEM said in a statement.
“Bok Seng attached particular importance to the low loading height of 885mm, which they need to handle a large number of upcoming long-distance journeys with railroad wagons on routes with bridges and tunnels.
With a winch mounted on the gooseneck for this purpose, the wagons can be quickly pulled onto the loading deck.”
