Kögel presents Port 40 Simplex container chassis at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016
Flexible container chassis with rear extension / Also available with optimised rear section for ramp access
In addition, the Port 40 Simplex scores with its ease of use thanks to pneumatic pressure at the press of a button. For a longer lifespan, the rear extension on the Port 40 Simplex features a low-maintenance guide on special plastic sliders and two extension rollers.
The IAA exhibit is suitable for transporting a 20 foot ISO container flush-fitted to the rear with a retracted frame. If the rear extension is used, then a 40 foot Highcube container or two 20 foot ISO containers can be accommodated. The exhibited model also demonstrates the option of fitting a 30 and 40 foot ISO container flush at the rear and a 20 foot container in the centre.
Also available with optimised rear section for ramp access
To simplify the task of loading and unloading the containers on a ramp, the Port 40 Simplex container chassis can be optionally equipped with a rear section shortened by 70 millimetres. This means the vehicle can get closer to the ramp, and the gap between container and ramp that needs to be bridged with a drive-over panel is reduced accordingly. The transport of 40 foot ISO containers is not possible with this option.
Cathodic dip-paint coating: lasting protection from corrosion
As with all Kögel vehicles, the entire vehicle frame of the Kögel Port 40 Simplex is given long-lasting protection from corrosion by Nano Ceramic Technology and cathodic dip-paint coating, supplemented with UV painting.
