Cartwright and Joloda have worked together for 15 years on bespoke trailer solutions, and this latest order, says Cartwright, is an example of how the two suppliers use complementary skills and expertise to deliver the best products.
The DHL trailers feature a Joloda Hydraroll rollerbed on each deck – a product Cartwright has specified for ten years, thanks to its ability to optimise loading times for operators.
The MK9 rollerbed system has low-height rollers, giving extra clearance to enable the loading of CMP cage pallets. The trailers move 11 CMPs: six on top, four on the lower deck and one on the internal lift. Using a standard rollerbed system in a single-deck trailer only allows a load of seven CMPs, so DHL’s double-deck solution reduces the trailer fleet in terms of numbers and reduces costs.
Air-operated pallet stops are fitted to ensure safety when the internal deck is in operation. The bottom deck rollers can lift in three separate sections and also lift independently from the top deck.
The Hydraroll’s pneumatic roller track system is designed to allow easy movement of loads, product or machinery into trucks and trailers. The principle of the pneumatically raised rollers is to have them available only when loading and unloading is required, and not during transit. When the rollers are not in use, the load is safely located on the floor.
