The NOVUM-generation Kögel Cargo
The highlight of the trade fair stand is the NOVUM-generation Kögel Cargo. This Kögel best-seller is ideal for flexible use in European domestic goods transport. The Kögel Cargo has the optimised external frame profile and improved body that characterise the NOVUM generation. As well as making the Kögel Cargo even more robust, these features simplify handling in daily use. What's more, the NOVUM-generation Kögel Cargo appeals with extensive standard equipment and a very high degree of individualisation. This means that it can be adapted in line with the market and the individual requirements of each forwarding company. With a low tare weight starting at 5,920 kg in the basic version, it's extremely cost-effective to drive. Various individual features can be viewed on the Cargo exhibited at Solutrans 2019. Including, for example, reinforcement of the front wall inner with a 2-mm-thick and 1,250-mm-tall steel plate. The Kögel Cargo is fitted with the Kögel EasyFix Stopper for quick and easy securing of the sliding roof when open. The Kögel EasyFix Stopper not only holds the sliding roof securely in position, but also allows you to close it easily after completing the loading process, without having to unlock it again. This system increases efficiency and safety during loading and unloading. In addition, the Kögel Cargo features a series of Kögel FastFix textile lattices. With a weight of only 495 g and the proven toggle fastener, the Kögel FastFix textile lattice is very quick and easy to attach and detach from the stakes. The Kögel FastFix textile lattice is made of flexible belt material, which means it fits into any toolbox, significantly reducing the risk of damage. Further individual equipment includes an axle lift, Kögel LUXIMA multi-chamber tail lights, a tail lift, an Omega hardwood floor, a fire extinguisher, and much more.
The second exhibition piece is the Kögel Box – PurFerro quality. This lightly insulated dry freight box body, with 30-mm-thick walls and a 40-mm-thick insulated roof produced in-house, ensures perfect protection for temperature-sensitive goods. The 30-mm-thick non-slip floor is designed for a fork-lift axle load of 7,200 kg and comes standard with a 720-mm-long steel structure plate mounted in the rear. The dry freight box body provides premium transport quality and protection from environmental influences and theft. With a wide range of equipment options, the trailer is also highly customisable in line with specific customer requirements. The Kögel Box – PurFerro quality exhibited at the Solutrans 2019 is equipped for double-deck loading with guide rails and 23 loading bars – each with 1,000 kg load capacity. This allows variable level loading with up to 33 Euro pallets with a maximum weight of 670 kg per pallet. A space-saving mechanical roll-up door instead of rear wall doors for fast turnover of general cargo loads has been installed in the exhibition trailer. Further individual equipment includes two large toolboxes, a steel lamp carrier, a fire extinguisher, and much more.
Kögel KTA trailer axle
The third exhibit at Solutrans is the Kögel Trailer Axle KTA. This is a standard feature for many variants of the Kögel Cargo, Kögel Lightplus, Kögel Cool – PurFerro quality and Kögel Box product ranges, along with various chassis. The low-maintenance axle is perfectly tailored to Kögel trailers, and further improves the driving properties.
Further highlights at the stand include the expanded service offer for trailers, including financing, breakdown service, spare parts and telematics.
