Optimised lightweight construction and simple operation: Kögel Port series achieves outstanding valuesBurtenbach, )
After the IAA Transportation 2022, all chassis series will be based on the new chassis generation, previously only featured in the award-winning, multifunctional Port 45 Triplex chassis. Container chassis in the Duplex series now feature Kögel’s very own one-piece front extension, mounted on four rollers, which has been used successfully on the Port 45 Triplex for several years already. It is not only low-maintenance and easy to operate, but exceptionally light as well.
Its complete structural revision also includes the use of high-strength steel. This allows the thickness of the material to be reduced, considerably reducing the tare weight. Thanks to this adjustment, all the models in the Port series will in future offer considerably more payload. With the basic equipment, the weight advantage compared to previous designs is between 400 kilograms for models with only a rear extension (Simplex) and 700 kilograms for models with a front and rear extension (Duplex). This saves a lot of fuel, thereby reducing the carbon footprint and the cost of transporting containers by road.
At Stand F14 in Hall 27, Kögel will present the front extension and the innovative, intuitive Kögel Multi Container Stop on a Port 45 Duplex container chassis with front and rear extensions for ISO and High-Cube containers in sizes from 20 to 45 foot. Thanks to the revision, this extremely versatile container chassis now weighs 5,050 kilograms, instead of 5,750 kilograms. An impressive result “made in Burtenbach” that will boost the attractiveness of environmentally friendly multimodal transport!
