Major order from Poland – Hama Polska orders 1,100 Kögel semi-trailers
Burtenbach, 6th April 2017
The commercial vehicle rental company Hama Polska is part of the DBK Group and is planning to extend its DBK rental fleet by adding 1,100 new Kögel semi-trailers. In recent years, DBK Rental has not only made a name for itself in Poland, but also in Germany, Austria, Sweden and Spain. Hama Polska therefore recently ordered 900 new Kögel Cargo units and 200 new Kögel Mega semi-trailers to extend its rental services in the aforementioned countries. These semi-trailers are ideally suited for rental, due to their low service and maintenance costs.
Under the umbrella of DBK Rental services, Hama Polska provides a wide range of solutions. Over 1,000 tractor units from various manufacturers, as well as a large selection of Kögel semi-trailers are available for long- or short-term rental. This includes Kögel semi-trailers of the Cargo, Mega, Cool and Port models. DBK Rental provides a comprehensive customer service. This includes maintenance and repair services in Poland and abroad, a tyre service and a mobility guarantee, with the provision of a replacement vehicle in the event of an accident of a breakdown.
The Eurotrailer company, which is also part of the DBK Group, is the general importer of Kögel semi-trailers in Poland and has always had close ties with Hama Polska. Eurotrailer will continue to extend its cooperation with Hama Polska as part of its DBK Rental services. This means that an increasing number of forwarding companies will have access to Kögel semi-trailers in future, making use of modern financial solutions and services offered by DBK Rental.
900 new Kögel Cargo units
The Kögel Cargo semi-trailers come with standard equipment, delivering well-known benefits such as low maintenance costs and high-quality workmanship. The VarioFix perforated steel external frame is equipped with 13 pairs of lashing rings for load-securing, each ring affording 2,000 kg of tensile force. The body meets the body stability standards of DIN EN 12642 Code XL, making any additional load-securing unnecessary for form-fitted loads. Thanks to the use of the standard Kögel integral roof tarpaulin, there are no straps left hanging down when the roof is open because these are integrated into the roof tarpaulin. This means that the straps cannot get snagged up when loading and unloading. An optional lateral steel bracket across the entire width and locking cam protection mounted centrally on the end plate of the frame are fitted as forklift protection. The individual accessories for each trailer also include five pairs of receiving slots at the rear corner posts, as well as a rain guard on the end frame for suitable clamp fittings with eyelets, a tarpaulin rope with two brackets on the front wall and many other features.
200 new Kögel Mega units
Mega semi-trailers are perfectly suited for conventional standard tasks as well as for use as a high-volume transport vehicle. The internal clearance height of three metres makes these high-volume miracles the ideal trailers for just-in-time business in the automotive sector. Loading and unloading stacked pallet cages is simple, thanks to the standard mechanical/hydraulic lifting roof. This increases the side and rear through-loading height to more than three metres. The standard Kögel integral roof tarpaulin also guarantees improved handling with an open roof. Thanks to the roof straps being integrated in the roof tarpaulin, sagging straps are a thing of the past. This eliminates the straps snagging on the load. Mega-trailers are, of course, certified in accordance with DIN EN 12642 Code XL. Once again, Hama Polska has opted for the individual accessories previously described for the Cargo trailers.
"Truck and trailer rental companies are currently reporting high growth rates, as an increasing number of forwarding companies rent this equipment to cover peak demand or simply outsource the entire fleet," says Jacek Portalski, general manager of Eurotrailer Sp. z.o.o. "Naturally we are pleased that Hama Polska customers are demanding high-quality Kögel semi-trailers and that Hama Polska is able to respond to this demand."
