Double deck solutions innovator Transdek UK is launching a new XL double deck trailer, custom built for Boots UK, at the CV Show, NEC Birmingham on 26-28 April. The company will also be exhibiting one of its award winning Wedge trailers and the latest V2G (vehicle to ground) modular, integrated lift-loadhouse on stand 3B100.
In line with its commitment to continuous product development, the company has designed a 13.6 metre double deck trailer with an overall height of 4.1 metres. The XL is intended for high volume logistics operations to distribution centres or larger stores, where sites and routes are restricted in height.
The XL double deck trailer carries up to 60% 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 rollcages (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.
Alongside the new XL trailer will be an ambient Wedge double deck trailer, which offers an impressive 52-pallet capacity for loads up to 1863mm in height. Both trailers feature Transdek’s patented V-Glide double deck rear doors, which optimise internal load space and security.
Mark Adams, Managing Director at Transdek UK, said: “At Transdek our aim is to offer a range of added value solutions that provide customers with flexible options to meet their current and evolving distribution requirements.
“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.”
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. Engineered to meet exact requirements, the lift carries nine pallets (1000mm x 1200mm), is 7.8m long and has a 5.5 tonne capacity.
The V2G lift will also feature a Transdek-developed bi-fold bridge plate, which allows safer and easier access to the rear doors of trailers after docking.
