Over 400 MEGA Huckepack XLS semi-trailers will be added to Arcese’s fleet in 2016.
Arcese has been always committed to renovating its fleet of vehicles to meet its clients’ requirements efficiently and ensure a flexible, high-quality service. With this in mind, the company has purchased 400 new MEGA Huckepack XLS semi-trailers, which will be added to the fleet by the end of 2016. The name of this semi-trailer alone highlights our attention to safety, as the ‘XL’ refers to the European standard code for load security, and the “S” stands for “extra strong, safe and secure.” This model, which represents an important new development for the market, has its side slats integrated in the tarpaulins by means of a tensioning system on the inner side, which maintains the shape of the template during transport. For this reason, it is particularly suitable for loads which tend to bulge in the curtain during transport, such as tyres or goods in bulk.
“Our vehicles travel thousands of kilometres every day – explains Marco Manfredini, FTL Director for Arcese – The use of new and state-of-the-art vehicles represents Arcese’s commitment to meeting our clients’ requirements as best as we can. Besides guaranteeing the highest safety for the goods, this new type of semi-trailer allows for easier side loading and unloading activities and greater safety during handling operations.” This type of semi-trailer provides multiple benefits. For example, loads that tend to inflate can be easily adapted, loading/unloading operations are faster thanks to the loose parts, and side opening is easier. Moreover, thanks to its integrated tensioning system, the XLS semi-trailer meets the latest market requirements in terms of load security, while reducing the risk of theft.
