Dimension of 40ft 20ft Chassis for Container Transport
Being the lightest compare to the other types of semi-trailers, the main purpose of container transport chassis is to transport different sizes of containers. The most commonly seen sizes are 20ft, 40ft, and 45ft.
20ft Container Transport Chassis
The 20ft container transport chassis can transport 20ft containers and typically includes 4 or 8 container twist locks. Depending on the needs of the customer, the 20-foot skeleton trailer may be equipped with 3 axles, 2 axles, or a single axle. The weight of these skeleton trailers may be as low as 3.5T. The typical lengths and widths for 20-foot skeleton trailers with three and two axles are as follows:
- 3-axle: 8500mm*2480mm
- 2-axle: 7000mm*2480mm or 7600mm*2480
40ft Container Transport Chassis
Q345 or T700 material can be use for the main bean with the typical dimension of 12mm for the upper flange, 5mm or 6mm in thickness and 500mm in height for the middle plate, and 16mm for the lower flange. Some of the often seen specifications for the 40ft skeleton trailers are 13t axle, 9.0*22.5 rim, 12R22.5-16PR tire, 10*13mm spring plates, and metal mudguard.
45ft Container Transport Chassis
The 45ft container transport chassis can be use to transport one 45ft container, one 40ft container, one 20ft container, or two of the 20ft containers at the same time. When transporting a single 20ft container with the 40ft skeleton trailer or 45ft skeleton trailer, the container should be place in the middle of the trailer to have a balance weight distribution.
Different Types of Chassis for Container Transport
Due to their lower and steadier centers of gravity, gooseneck container transport chassis are also utilize for heavy-duty or tall containers, even though most 40- and 20-foot container transport chassis are straight.
When transporting two 20-foot containers, the height of the middle plate for the main beam is typically increase to 550mm for greater capacity and resistance. The cargo platform may be lower than 1400mm, whereas the saddle height with corresponding tractor heads is typically 1280mm.
Special Specification for Chassis for Container Transport
It can also be add to 40ft and 20ft container transport chassis as need. With this feature, the front axle can be lift when the trailer is not load to efficiently decrease unnecessary wear for tires and increase the fuel economy for tractor heads.
Terminal Chassis for Container Transport
A unique branch of skeleton trailer terminal chassis—40 feet and 20 feet in length—can only be use inside terminals and ports for the transportation of containers. The loading and unloading of containers on these kinds of skeleton trailers must be simple and quick.
hey are use to move containers over small distances. Bars and rails are develope and put around the trailer and the steel plates in place of container twist locks, and the beams on terminal trailers are frequently thicker for greater loading capacity than standard skeleton semi-trailers.
Furthermore, the technology and production requirements for 40ft and 20ft terminal skeleton trailers are much higher than those for regular skeleton trailers. This is also where Vehicle Master differentiates itself from other semi-trailer manufacturers, who do not have the capability nor the technology to produce sophisticated trailers such as the terminal skeleton trailers.
