Westfleisch takes 15 new Kogel Cools

Burtenbach, Germany: Wetralog, part of food logistics business Westfleisch, has bought 15 Kögel Premium freezer trailers for its fleet.

Wetralog will use the trailers to transport meat for retail and wholesale customers. The Kögel reefers have low-noise aluminium floors with welded aluminium floor pans for better hygiene and simpler cleaning. The floor pans also prevent moisture from penetrating the load-bearing structures, which increases trailer life.

The box bodies meet ATP/FRC requirements and are a variation of Kögel Cool trailers using PurFerro foam polymer. The steel ceiling layer is coated with hard PVC film on the inside. The 60-mm-thick walls, 85-mm-thick roof, and 125-mm-thick floor are made by Kögel. The trailers also come with a load-securing certificate as standard, in accordance with EN 12642 Code XL. This shows that they are particularly suitable for the form-locked transport of general cargo and palletised goods.

Wetralog specified 2 multi-level loading rails per side wall and the accompanying pallet carriers can be loaded with up to 33 Euro-pallets. A telescoping aluminium load-securing beam for the combination anchoring rails helps secure partial loads.To protect the front wall and the evaporator, as well as for improved airflow, the refrigerated boxes have a Kögel impact bulkhead which consists of individual aluminium V-profiles, flexible and easy to dismantle for cleaning, but also providing protection.

There are two rows of rubber protective bumpers on the frame closure panel and a rubber protective strip mounted left and right of the portal frame. Other optional equipment includes a plastic fuel tank for the cooling device, an axle lift on the first and third axle, a steel lamp carrier, and LED lights.

The freezer box trailers have Kögel Telematics.
