Introduction of 40ft 3 Axle Cargo Fence Trailer
The Vehicle Master 40ft 3 axle cargo fence trailer is one of the most widely used type of semi trailers by far. Due to the fact that it has the features and functionality of side wall semi trailer, most of the goods transported by side wall trailers can also be transported by cargo fence trailer. Furthermore, thanks to its fence structure that raises the height of carriage, more variety of goods can be carried with more flexibility.
In terms of the types of goods transported, in addition to vegetables, fruits, clothes, electrical appliances, steel and other light foam goods, coal, sand and gravel materials, small engineering equipment, etc. can be transported by the cargo fence semi-trailer as well. In the fields of electric power engineering and communication engineering, cargo fence semi trailer has also played a very big role.
Challenges 40ft 3 Axle Cargo Fence Trailer is Facing
However, with the continuous tightening of relevant regulations, the development challenges faced by 30ft 3 axle cargo fence semi trailers are also increasing. At present, they can be mainly divided into the following:
The type of goods transported is limited
According to GB 1589-2016 "Outline Dimensions, Axle Loads and Mass Limits of Road Vehicles", the 40ft 3 axle cargo fence semi trailer is "installed on the top with a non-removable top grid rod fixed to the side wall", which makes the cargo fence trailers’s disassembly not as easy as before to a certain extent.
In addition, according to the technical requirements of the industry, the interior of the cargo fence semi trailer is not allowed to have braces. Due to the large height of the cargo fence semi trailer from the bottom of the carriage to the top of the cargo fence grid, the overall strength of the carriage is weak. This leads to the bending deformation of the cargo fence and the column. Therefore, goods that are easy to expand, such as bulk grain, coal, sand and gravel, etc., cannot be transported legally in China.
Increase of Cost for 40ft 3 Axle Cargo Fence Trailer
For a long time, the technical content of the 40ft 3 axle cargo fence-type semi-trailer is relatively low, while the manufacturing is relatively simple. So, for a period of time its price is also at a moderately low level in the industry.
After the GB7258-2017 national standard for motor vehicle operation safety technical conditions was promulgated, new requirements were put forward for the 40ft 3 axle cargo fence semi-trailer in terms of structure, safety and technology such as the installation of air suspension, disc brakes, automatic adjustment arms, and anti-splash devices. etc. To a certain extent, it directly leads to an increase in the cost of purchasing a cargo fence semi trailer. This increase can even reach more than 50%.
Replacement by Other Forms of Transportation
With the progress of society, people's requirements for logistics and transportation are also constantly improving. The phenomenon of "special purpose vehicles" was becoming more and more common. For example, in the express transportation market, in addition to adding van semi-trailers with larger capacity and higher safety, high-speed rail transportation will also be added. Another example is coal transportation, whose main method of transportation has been changed to multimodal transportation such as railways, waterways, etc.
In addition, the emergence of new models of semi trailers has also had a certain adverse impact on the development of 40ft 3 axle cargo fence semi-trailer such as soft curtain trailers and side curtain trailers, which can be used for similar scenarios. However, due to the subtle differences in size and structure, it also leads to the inability of many goods to be transported. As for whether it can become an alternative model for the cargo fence semi-trailer, it will still need further market verification.
The Future for 40ft 3 Axle Cargo Fence Trailer
From another point of view, after completing the technical upgrade the 40ft 3 axle cargo fence semi-trailer will gradually become standardized, which will help monitor the quality of products and improve the industry threshold. The scope of goods that can be carried may be further expanded.
