Transdek XL double deck trailer at CV Show

Transdek is launching a new XL double deck trailer, custom built for Boots UK, at the CV Show next month.

Transdek TD_XL_6893.jpgThe XL double deck trailer carries up to 60 per cent more load than a standard 13.6-metre artic. It incorporates a fixed second deck that creates space for up to 38 pallets, 54 Euro pallets or 72 roll cages (with a footprint of 750mm x 830mm). Built on an ultra low chassis, with the base floor just 281mm above ground, each deck has an internal height clearance of 1877mm.

Managing director Mark Adams said: “We are continually aiming to develop cost effective transport options that maximise load capacity and minimise mileage, operating costs and CO2 emissions. Our double deck trailers are built around exceptional quality, with an attention to detail that ensures each trailer will offer a lifetime of reliable service, as well as incorporating the latest, state-of-the-art technology.”

The company will also be exhibiting one of its Wedge trailers and the latest V2G (vehicle to ground) modular, integrated lift-loadhouse on stand 3B100.

Completing the stand will be one of Transdek’s latest V2G double deck lifts, which has been custom designed for one of the largest internet-based retailers in the world. The lift carries nine pallets (1000mm x 1200mm), is 7.8m long and has a 5.5 tonne capacity.
