Burtenbach, 8 March 2018

  • Fifteen new Kögel Cargo trailers
  • Five new Kögel Mega trailers

Fried-Sped Friedrichsohn Internationale Spedition GmbH based in Ummendorf a borough of the upper Swabian district of Biberach in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, is to receive 20 new Kögel semi-trailers. Fifteen Kögel Cargo semi-trailers and another five Kögel Mega models will be added to the forwarding company’s existing fleet, which consists only of Kögel semi-trailers. In future, the forwarding company intends to use the new trailers primarily for transporting high-quality fridges and freezers from an internationally recognized manufacturer.

Kögel Cargo and Kögel Mega: a high degree of individualisation
Even the standard Kögel Cargo and Mega semi-trailers come with 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-locked 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. Pallet cages stacked three high are easy to load and unload from Mega trailers thanks to the clear internal height of three metres and the standard mechanical-hydraulic lifting roof. This increases the side and rear through-loading height to more than three metres.

Fried-Sped individual equipment
All 20 trailers are optionally equipped as per Daimler Directive 9.5. This includes steel pallet limiting rails and a double front-wall bulkhead made from a 12 millimetre thick and 1,250 millimetre high textured coated board. On request, the rear of the trailers can also be fitted with reinforced steel rubber bumpers for enhanced bump protection. An eight millimetre thick transverse steel bracket, extending over the entire width, and locking cam protection, mounted centrally on the end plate of the frame, complete the trailer's impact protection. Most of the new semi-trailers are equipped with mechanically adjustable corner posts that can each be moved sideways 500 millimetres to allow easier loading and unloading. Further custom equipment includes a toolbox, five pairs of load-securing slots on the rear corner posts, a rain guard on the end frame and a host of other features.

Cathodic dip-paint coating: Lasting protection from corrosion
Nano ceramic technology and cathodic dip-paint coating together with a coat of UV varnish provide the entire frame on Kögel Cargo and Mega Rail trailers with long-term corrosion protection.
