Also thanks to the lower weight, a larger load is possible compared to conventional steel trailers. For example, if the trailer is 4 tons lighter, it may load 4 tons more weight (up to the European standard of maximum load).
The difference can be up to 15% more cargo per trip. And that also means 15% fewer trucks that have to drive to transport the same amount of material. For the transport company this can result in cost savings of up to 20%, due to the reduction in costs for the trailers, insurance, working hours and fuel.
Composite material is free of corrosion and therefore has a longer life than steel. In addition, composite insulates much better, so the composite trailers are also extremely suitable as refrigerated vehicles that use less cool energy compared to conventional refrigerated vehicles.
