Qimarox has purchased a new Category BE combination vehicle for the transport of parts. The special Category BE trailer, built by Carrosserie Bakker in Montfoort, allows the manufacturer of palletisers and vertical transport systems to transport more than before. Driver Kaj Hannessen (left on the photo) was given the keys to the Iveco Daily tractor unit and Category BE trailer last week.
Qimarox had a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with trailer, but this was urgently in need of replacement. After looking at various options, Qimarox eventually settled on this new Category BE combination vehicle. The special trailer offers more space than the old Sprinter plus trailer, so the company from Harderwijk can now transport even more. The sliding curtains allow the trailer to be loaded and unloaded from the sides, which is ideal for the long components Qimarox often conveys.
Qimarox will primarily use the combination vehicle to pick up smaller deliveries from suppliers that do not provide their own transport. Qimarox usually also picks up non-standard components, which are not produced in series. Because the new Category BE combination vehicle can transport more than before, transport can be more efficiently organised, for example, by combining multiple shipments.
