Eichenlaub forwarding company acquires Kögel trailers in STABILA design
13 July 2017
Eichenlaub is a forwarder for STABILA
Hubert Eichenlaub Transporte und Spedition GmbH from Herxheim in Rheinland-Palatinate has been a loyal Kögel customer for over 24 years. Every year, the forwarding company acquires approximately eight new Kögel trailers to keep its fleet up-to-date. With 50 semi-trailer combinations, a warehouse capacity of 21,000 m² and more than 80 employees, the Eichenlaub forwarding company is a reliable partner, thanks to its decades of experience in central warehouse distribution and its resulting expertise in logistics. Its customers, who come from the most varied of industries, such as the paper industry, the automotive just-in-time business and, of course, the measuring tool manufacturer STABILA, place their trust in the benefits offered by the Eichenlaub forwarding company. The two traditional companies from the southern Palatinate region demonstrate their connection impressively: Two new Kögel Cargo trailers in STABILA design are the perfect visual expression of the companies’ many years of partnership.
For their customer STABILA, a market leader in many countries and globally recognised as a measuring device specialist for spirit levels, lasers, folding rules and tape measures, the forwarding company Eichenlaub has recently acquired two new Kögel Cargo trailers with digital tarpaulins featuring a high-impact marketing design. The new trailers feature a 120 millimetre thick frame neck and a reinforced chassis. Of course, the trailers are also certified in accordance with DIN EN 12642 Code XL and feature comprehensive equipment as standard. This includes, for example, Kögel's integral roof tarpaulin. As a result, there are no straps left hanging down when the roof is open because these are integrated into the roof tarpaulin. This means that the straps cannot get snagged up when loading and unloading.
Eichenlaub/STABILA individual equipment
For load-securing, the VarioFix perforated steel external frame is equipped with 13 pairs of lashing rings with 4,000 kilograms of tensile force per ring, rather than the standard 2,000 kg of tensile force per ring. There are also two rows of stake pockets fitted in each of two positions on the inside of the side member in the front section, and two stake pockets per row on the external frame. These serve as a front wall alternative for load-securing at the front when needed. For securing partial loads, the trailers are equipped with four combination anchoring rails and two telescopic aluminium load-securing beams. The floor load-bearing capacity of the trailer is designed to withstand high fork-lift axle loads up to 8,000 kilograms. A 12 millimetre thick wear plate is installed on top of the standard 30 millimetre thick panel floor. A 720 millimetre long transition plate, made of steel chequer plate, is mounted above the rear end beam for additional protection. The inside of the front wall features a 12 millimetre thick and 1,250 millimetre high textured coated board to protect the front wall against damage during daily use. For enhanced impact protection, the rear of the vehicle is equipped with spring-mounted protective bumpers. An eight millimetre thick lateral steel bracket extending over the entire width and a locking cam protection, mounted centrally on the end plate of the frame, completes the trailer's impact protection. The additional special equipment includes a steel light carrier, LED peripheral lights, LED reversing lights, tarpaulin cables with two mounts, an odometer, storage space for lattices and square pipe stakes, a direct tensioner and much more.
