Transfesa Logistics renews its freight container fleet for European traffic
Jun 23, 2020
Transfesa Logistics will renew 122 freight containers of the fleet destined for the international traffic of Ford's production components.
The company will introduce a new model in order to improve the loading and unloading system and fully adapt to the customer’s needs. In addition to this, by having a versatile design, these multimodal transport units guarantee that their use in the market is as vast as possible.
The new freight containers will be in full circulation at the end of June in two corridors. The first of them is the one that leaves from Ford Valencia to Ford’s automotive factory located in Dagenham, London (UK). The second route in which they will be used is the route to the Ford plants in Saarlouis and Cologne, in Germany.
Characteristics of freight containers
The design, which has been worked on for two years, introduces numerous advantages. The high cube containers are 45’ feet and their tare weight is light, which makes it possible to increase the current transport capacity. As this volume increases, energy costs will also decrease and the environmental impact will be reduced.
Another of its main characteristics is that they have an open-top or sliding and lifting ceiling. With this option, the top and side loading and unloading of certain products are facilitated, adjusting to the specific needs of each client, in this case, Ford.
With this investment, Transfesa Logistics has wanted to provide added value to its entire logistics chain by introducing the most innovative elements on the market.
