I received the 40ft skeletal trailer today and everything looks intact. I mainly work in the transportation of container. It’s commendable that PANDA can customize my own skeletal trailers for me according to my needs. I hope the container chassis can bring me good luck.

The container or other cargo is loaded onto the chassis container trailer using a frontal crane, then the container is secured to the chassis with ISO standard locks for safety and stability, and then it is ready for safe transportation.


1.3. Why do we need container chassis?

Cargo container chassis can effectively improve the speed and efficiency of container transportation. At the same time, different chassis designs can accommodate different types of containers, but also according to the local height and weight restrictions and other laws to design.

1). Safe transportation

The container is securely fixed on the chassis by the locking device, preventing the container from moving during transportation and making transportation safer.

2). Lightweight, easy to transport

Container and chassis are generally made of light material, but at the same time, the material is durable enough and can quickly load the container weight.

3). Meet different needs

There are many kinds of chassis with containers, and depending on the markets, there are many different designs, such as gooseneck container chassis, bomb cart, and more.

6. What are the differences between them?

Bomb cart: bomb cart trailer body has a lot of raised parts. The role of these parts is for the container mounted on the location marker. There is a hand crank arm anti-slip block so that you can not hurt the bottom of the container at the same time, but also can effectively fix the container and will not lead to unexpected shaking problems.

The upper is a flatbed. A flatbed container trailer’s advantage lies in the resistance to twisting and earthquakes. The anti-bumping ability is relatively strong and can meet the needs of different roads.

Container tipper trailer: The main difference between container tipper trailers is that they can lift one end of the container without unloading the container from the semi-trailer to be more convenient in unloading the cargo.

Container truck trailer transport methods generally include ro-ro ship, bulk carrier, or container transport. Container transport is more suitable for container truck trailer, low cost, fast transportation, because of frequent fluctuations in sea freight, we suggest consulting our business manager.

8. Container chassis design

The longitudinal beam of the PANDA skeleton truck trailers adopts the whole plate blanking and integrated forming, with a low utilization rate of steel plate, more waste, and high cost. Still, no welding is in the middle, making the girder have high strength, lightweight, more substantial load capacity, and longer service life.

Compared to other brands, the local heating of the cut and welded beams during the welding process reduces the strength of the steel, annealing, deformation, and the stability of the welded joint is much lower than the strength of the steel itself.

The girder reinforcement device is designed to release the stress concentration at the suspension welding, eliminate the girder fracture and improve the centralized loading capacity.

10. Maintenance and benefits of maintenance

  1. Reasonable maintenance, polishing, Painting, and waxing of the skeleton trailer are the maintenance work that trailer owners like to do for the skeleton semi-trailer.
  2. The oxidized paint of the skeleton container trailer is removed by grinding and polishing to make the skeleton truck trailer glow again and restore the color to the state of the new skeleton chassis for the time being.
  3. Or re-spray paint to restore the gloss of the trailer paint or form a wax film on the trailer paint surface to prevent the oxidation of external harmful substances to the trailer paint.
  4. Sealing glaze can strengthen the strength of trailer paint, prevent fine scratches caused by wind and sand on the trailer body, and resist high temperature and ultraviolet rays.
  5. Waxing and glazing can make the skeleton semi-trailer look beautiful in a short time, but its action time is short.
  6. Moreover, the main components of wax and glaze are grease, and the fat is easy to be oxidized in the air. The oxidized wax and glaze lose the maintenance effect on the trailers and have oxidation resonance with the trailer paint to speed up the oxidation of the trailer paint. Therefore, the maintenance trailer’s color is still needed to maintain this kind of container chassis trailer.
  7. Vehicle rust shall eliminate the skeleton trailer rust before applying and maintaining the skeletal chassis trailer paint. If the chassis trailer body has impact marks, the trailer body shall repair the scratches first.
  8. The vehicle surface can paint after the 20/40/45ft container chassis trailer surface treatment. When Painting, the positions that do not need Painting, such as tires, lights, rubber pads, etc., can be carried out only after the masking is completed.
