The brand Ekeri and its high-quality products are very well known in Scandinavia; many freight forwarders recognize the brand and what it stands for. In the Netherlands, Ekeri vehicles aren’t that common yet, something that Carrosserie Elenbaas is working hard to change. One step in that direction is this multi-functional Ekeri combination consisting of a truck body and a center axle trailer with fully side opening doors. The side doors are easy to maneuver, and the tail lift on the truck chassis makes for more versatile access. The boxes are equipped with Carrier cooling engines, which can monitor and control the inside temperatures. All in all, it’s a very flexible solution that speaks for itself.
The inside height of the vehicles is maximized to get as much payload in as possible. With an inner height of 2700 mm in the truck body and 2870 mm in the center axle trailer, the vehicle combination swallows most payloads thrown at it. The fully opening sides enable comfortable access to the cargo space. Loading and unloading long or cumbersome goods is no challenge for these Ekeri bodies. The side opening option also makes for more possibilities when loading and unloading at demanding locations. Being flexible in these times is worth every penny and creates the advantage most companies are looking for.
The truck is further equipped with a 4-ton tail lift with a large volume lifting platform, making for easy access when loading and unloading at the rear of the truck. In crowded and tight city areas, the drawbar can be left outside the city region. The truck can continue distributing inside the city, re-load from the center axle again and then continue distributing the load.
The combination is tailor-made to meet the needs of Eijgenhuijsen Precision Transport and will help the company in demanding transport jobs. Both vehicles are fitted with a custom-made side skirt with integrated reversing lights and sidelights from Carrosserie Elenbaas in the Netherlands. This modification really makes the vehicle show off its perfection in detail – a multi-functional combination dressed in the finest suit.
Ekeri wishes continuous easy loading!
