Fur: length of different types of trailer
This article will tell you about the basic characteristics of the trucks. We will consider their sizes, types and types. In addition, your attention will be given a table with the main characteristics of the machines.
The vulgar name "wagon" meanslarge-capacity car with a semitrailer. This name takes its roots from the German name of a freight cart with horse traction. Employees of transport companies, freight forwarders operate with more specific definitions - "awning for ... tons", "refrigerator", etc. or a neutral name "car", if the car's characteristics are known to the customer and there is no misunderstanding with him.
Cargo semi-trailers, eurofuries: overall dimensions and description
To transport volumetric goods to largedistances in the shortest possible time often resort to transportation by trucks. The carrying capacity of these machines reaches 24 tons, while the truck has a length of 15 meters.
Eurofury, or tilt semitrailers
Eurofuries are universal semi-trailers,which are most often used to transport goods up to twenty thousand kilograms. The device of this type of machine provides for the dismantling of the awning, the sides, the removal of the rack for the possibility of loading long loads on the side of the car (if necessary, the frame can be disassembled in its entirety). Therefore, wagons of the type described are the most common and are used for various modes of transportation - from transportation through the city to international routes of cargo movement. This type of waggon has a length of about fourteen meters.
It should be noted that the van is used forTransportation of goods without strictly adhering to the temperature while driving. It only allows you to keep the initial temperature of the cargo for a short amount of time, and therefore it does not have the ability to maintain a constant temperature during long journeys over long distances. For an isothermal van, the wagon length will be of the order of thirteen to fifteen meters.
If to be more precise in the definition, thenThe refrigerated semi-trailer is a vehicle equipped with refrigeration equipment with an automation system, by means of which the specified temperature during transportation is maintained inside the body. The length of the trailer of the refrigerator van can be about thirteen to fourteen meters.
Unlike isothermal trucks, where only the bodythermally insulated, refrigerators have additional refrigeration equipment with an automation system to maintain the desired temperature inside the body.
A rigid van is far from universalvehicle, since it does not have the possibility of top or side loading, which leads to a rather rare use of this mode of transport. For a rigid van for a European type of waggon, the length is 13.2-13.6 meters.
