• Read this before choosing your trailer system

    When it comes to trailer applications, there’s no one-size-fits-all. Many variables affect performance and cost—load size, wheel arrangement, deck size and steering type, to name a few.

    Everything you need to know, including:

    • An overview of different steering systems, complete with a matrix that compares performance, handling, capacity and cost
    • How load size, inclines, aisle width and environmental factors (e.g. rough floors, extreme temperatures, heavy debris) influences design
    • Common everyday scenarios around maneuverability and safety concerns
  • Design Principles of In-Plant Trailers

    In-plant trailers represent a tried and true method of moving materials through plants safely and efficiently. While trailers look alike at first glance, there are some significant differences that greatly affect performance and cost. The wise purchaser will study the differences and select the system that makes the best sense for the specific application. This white paper addresses the most important design factors to consider when specifying in-plant trailers.
