2. The use and characteristics of the skeletal semi trailer

Skeletal semi trailer use:

Skeletal semi trailer has been widely used in modern logistics and transportation industry. It is specially used to transport various ISO standard containers and dangerous cargo holds, and has sufficient bearing strength and can be used repeatedly for a long time.

A container skeletal trailer is an integrated means of transport that packs loose goods in a standardized hold (or other container) for transport. When changing the means of transport, the goods in the cabin do not need to be reversed, but only need to transfer the container with loose goods from one means of transport to another means of transport.

Containers are loaded onto the container chassis trailer using a front-end crane, and then securely and stably fixed on the chassis with standard THT twist locks, and then they can be transported directly.

Skeletal semi trailer is a good means of transportation for intermodal transportation, such as: road, railway, waterway and air. Has the following characteristic:

1). Simplify operations

When the container is being transshipped, it only needs to be reloaded, and there is no need to reverse the cargo, which greatly simplifies the loading and unloading operations and facilitates the realization of mechanized operations.

2). Improve efficiency

Container reloading generally only takes a few minutes, which shortens the waiting time, improves labor productivity, and speeds up the turnover of goods and transportation tools.

3). Safe and convenient

The container is tightly fixed on the chassis of the vehicle through locks device, which prevents the container from moving sideways during transportation and ensures safer and more convenient transportation.

4). Meet different needs

Container transport trailers are available in different models and sizes, and can be quickly adjusted and changed according to the needs of the market and application.

5). Better maintain customer relationship

Customers can receive goods on time or even ahead of schedule. Customers are satisfied and have a good experience effect, which is conducive to long-term and stable cooperation.

4. Different types of container transport trailers

Commonly used container transport trailers include: skeletal semi trailer, gooseneck skeleton trailer, flatbed semi trailer, terminal trailer, and container tipper trailer.

Skeletal semi trailer: Skeletal semi trailer is a relatively simple fixed frame structure, usually made of steel, without much complexity. Used to transport containers from one place to another, it needs to cooperate with the crane that loads and unloads the container.

Gooseneck skeletal trailer: gooseneck skeletal trailer is mainly used in some countries that have strict restrictions on the loading height of containers. Due to its high gooseneck steps and low center of gravity, it solves the problem of vehicle height well. The ultra-low cargo platform does not exceed the limit, and the driving is safer and more reliable.

Flatbed semi trailer: Flatbed semi trailer is also called container chassis trailer, which is mainly used in ports, freight stations, docks and other places, and is mainly used for 20ft, 40ft, 45ft container and other bulk cargo transportation. The flatbed semi trailer not only has the traditional advantages of a container transport trailer, but also has its own structural advantages.

Terminal trailer: Terminal trailer mainly consists of a simple truck chassis and strong cargo structure for loading high quality containers. Simple to operate and affordable, this terminal trailer is adjustable to meet your loading and unloading requirements.

Container tipper trailer: The container tipper trailer is easy to unload the container, and the tipper hydraulic system installed on the upper platform can easily lift one end of the container, so that it is more convenient to unload the cargo.

8. Precautions for purchasing a skeleton semitrailer

Facing the numerous brands and configurations of skeleton semi trailers on the market, customers may be dazzled and have no way to start. So what should we pay attention to when purchasing a good skeleton trailer?

1. Design

First of all, the design structure of the skeleton trailer should be reasonable, and the center of gravity of the chassis should be as low as possible. According to the comprehensive factors, such as: the load of the skeleton semi trailer, the category of goods, and the road conditions, it is necessary to carry out systematic planning and design to meet the different needs of customers.

2. Frame material

The frame part of the skeleton trailer is the main load-bearing structure, so the material of the main beam needs to be paid attention to. Seemingly the same steel, in fact, there is a difference between high-strength, manganese steel, and ordinary carbon steel, and their durability is also different. The main girder made of high-strength steel plate can ensure its higher bearing capacity and service life.

3. Production process

Skeleton semitrailer manufacturers must have a good production process. The automatic submerged arc welding method is used to weld the trailer parts, and after the welding is formed, the surface shot blasting and derusting processes are carried out, so as to better increase the adhesion and anti-corrosion effect of the paint. High quality welding techniques and extensive manufacturing work are put in place to ensure that the skeletal trailers for sale meet the highest quality standards.

4. Service commitment

In order to protect the rights and interests of customers to the greatest extent, does the company provide product services and solutions? What kind of pre-sales, sales and after-sales services does the company promise to provide to customers? Otherwise, if the skeleton semitrailer purchased by the customer has problems or malfunctions, it will be difficult to get timely repairs.

11. What are the maintenance methods for container chassis trailers?

Container chassis trailer is a common means of transportation. In order to maintain the performance of the container trailer, it must be maintained regularly. Let’s take a look at the maintenance method of the 40 foot container chassis trailer.

1. Skeleton trailers need to check all parts frequently, good chassis condition and standard positioning dimensions to ensure the normal operation of the vehicle.

2. The tire pressure has a great influence on the life of the tire. It is necessary to maintain the specified pressure, because too high or too low tire pressure will reduce the service life of the tire.

3. It is necessary to check the cracks and wear of the tires, and replace them in time if there are potential safety hazards. When choosing tires, the model should be consistent.

4. Container trailers need to check the liquid level of the clutch master cylinder. If the liquid level of the clutch is between high and low, it means normal. If it is lower than the standard line, please go to the nearest maintenance station for repair in time.

5. Regularly replace lubricating oil, fasten parts, check the toe-in, check the wear degree of the brake friction lining, check the reducer assembly and whether the gear oil exceeds the performance.

I hope that everyone will take corresponding maintenance measures for the 40 foot container chassis trailer after mastering these methods.
