Combinex takes two Kögel reefers

Burtenbach, Germany: Dutch forwarding company Combinex has added two premium Kögel Cool – PurFerro refrigerated trailers to its fleet.

Combinex runs scheduled services with partial and full loads to Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, the Czech Republic, Poland, Ireland, the UK, Scandinavia and Switzerland.

The Kögel reefers have low-noise aluminium floors as standard. In the floor area, the bodies come with welded aluminium floor pans for increased hygiene and simpler cleaning. The floor pans also prevent moisture from penetrating the load-bearing structures, which increases the service life and cost-effectiveness of the trailer.

The trailers meet meet hazard analysis and critical control points requirements for international temperature-controlled food transport. The refrigerated box trailers also comply with ATP/FRC requirements.

The box bodies of the all-purpose version of the Kögel Cool – PurFerro quality trailers consist of a highly insulating, CFC-free, foam polymer. The steel covering layer is also coated with hard PVC film on the inside. The 45-mm-thick walls, 85-mm-thick roof, and 125-mm-thick floor are made by Kögel.

The trailer also comes with the EN 12642 Code XL load-securing certificate as standard. This shows that it is particularly suitable for form-locked transport of general cargo and palletised goods.

The refrigerated box trailers have Kögel Telematics. The CoolTrailer telematics package of the Cool – PurFerro quality refrigerated boxes also makes data such as the box temperature, refrigeration unit operating mode, and setpoints available via the TempControl service.

The Kögel telematics database allows Combinex to display all the acquired data in the web portal and other fleet management systems in real time into existing processes and a host of software systems.
