Transdek UK, the total solutions specialists for the double deck sector, will be exhibiting its award winning, temperature controlled double deck Wedge trailer, along with its unique DUET urban double deck trailer on stand 3C98 at this year’s CV Show at the NEC Birmingham on 26-28 April. The company will also be exhibiting one of its latest vehicle-to-ground (V2G) double deck lifts on stand 3B100.
Designed specifically to carry high volume multi-temperature produce on trunking runs, the double deck Wedge trailer is capable of transporting up to 50 standard pallets or up to 90 roll cages, twice the load of a standard single deck reefer. The trailer was developed to improve supply chain efficiency for which it won the Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution (TCS&D) Award for Innovation 2015.
At the CV Show the Wedge trailer will feature a temperature controlled upper deck and ambient lower deck. The trailer allows full-height loading on both decks and incorporates Transdek’s insulated twin-slide vertical door system. A four-part sliding insulated curtain on the inside of each deck creates additional thermal integrity and efficiency.
Accompanying the Wedge at the show will be Transdek’s DUET Urban double deck trailer, which enables effective high volume deliveries to busy city centres. The trailer was developed to meet the growing need for transport efficiencies on last-mile deliveries to urban centres, particularly from grocery retailers.
The innovative DUET Urban trailer significantly reduces the number of deliveries per store and provides up to 100% greater load footprint when compared to an 18-tonne rigid truck. This can cut HGV traffic frequency in towns and cities by up to 50% per operation, offering the added benefits of halving fuel consumption and emissions. In addition it cuts general noise levels and retail store disruption frequency.
Mark Adams, Managing Director at Transdek UK, said: “The CV Show is a great opportunity for us to showcase the innovative and award winning features that are incorporated into the design of the Wedge trailer. Show visitors will be able to see at first hand the key advantages and flexible supply chain solutions that our range of DUET based trailers delivers for transport operators.”
Also on display will be a working model of Transdek’s innovative V2G double deck lifts. The V2G range is supplied as a pre-clad, pre-tested loadhouse unit, providing a ready-made temperature-controlled and secure environment for the movement of products between vehicles and the warehouse.
The surface mounted units can be installed in as little as a day, minimising potential disruption and can be cost-effectively retrofitted to existing sites.
A double Queen’s Award winner, Transdek’s innovative range of double deck trailers and lifts all have international patents granted or pending.
