Advantages of FUDENG Skeleton Semi Trailer
- The main beam of the skeleton trailer is made of high strength steel. The strength is twice that of common manganese steel on the market, and three times stronger than ordinary steel. As a result, the durability and longevity of our skeleton trailers for sale is significantly increased.
- The beam thickness is carefully calculated for various tonnages and the skeletal container trailer can be customized in different lengths and payloads to meet specific needs.
- The frame of the skeleton semi trailer is also made of high strength steel, so less material is used. This makes the skeleton semi trailer lighter, an advantage that is even more pronounced when charging by weight.
High-Strength Frame and Girders
Since the skeletal container trailer is a frame structure, there is no platform for carrying goods, and the container can only be moved by fixing devices. There are two types of common container chassis:
- Skeleton Semi Trailer: skeleton container trailer is suitable for medium and long-distance transport containers. With 4/8/12 container twist locks to fix the container. It is the most basic semi-trailer model.
- Container Terminal Trailer: the difference between the container terminal trailer and the skeleton container trailer is that the container terminal trailer does not have a container lock, but instead a guide block used to prevent the container from slipping during transportation. container terminal trailer can only be used to transfer containers in the port and cannot be used on the road.
- Port transportation: Skeleton trailers are the main tools used to transport containers. The container can be moved from the terminal to the freight terminal, or it can be transported to other destinations on land.
- Road transport: skeleton trailer for sale can transport containers with various goods by road. Such as crops, bulk goods, furniture and home appliances, etc.

As the main tool for making money, it is very important to choose a good skeleton semi trailer. A good container chassis can not only improve work efficiency, but also reduce frequent repairs and maintenance, and reduce costs. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a skeleton semi trailer:
- Load capacity: Choose the appropriate load capacity according to your transportation needs. It is necessary to consider the weight and volume of the container to be transported, as well as the distance and road conditions of the transport.
- Quality: Choosing the same quality skeleton semi trailer can ensure safe transportation and reduce the cost of repair and replacement. FUDENG skeleton trailer for sale is of reliable quality and has a stable structure.

- Suspension system: choose the appropriate suspension system. Choose to use air suspension or mechanical suspension according to your own needs.

In order to make customers receive the skeleton semi trailer in the best condition, we will spray a layer of wax before transportation to prevent the semi trailer from being corroded by seawater. In addition, it will be fixed with ropes to improve safety. If your container chassis is on the deck, we will also cover the container chassis with a tarpaulin to avoid wind and direct sunlight, and at the same time isolate the sea water.
Bulk Cargo Transportation
The advantage of bulk shipping is that it is cheap. But the skeleton semi trailer is prone to corrosion on the deck, so it needs to be sprayed with wax and covered with tarps. It is the most common way of shipping by sea, which is affordable and cost-effective.
The advantage of ro-ro transport is safety. We place the skeleton semi trailer purchased by the customer in the cabin to isolate it from the outside world. Therefore, no matter how harsh the external environment is, no damage will be caused to the trailer body.
Sometimes container shipping will be cheaper. This approach also isolates the skeletal container trailer from the outside world. However, the length of the container is fixed. If the container chassis with a length of more than 40 feet is transported, it needs to be docked. It's easy to re-weld the tail and body together when you receive the trailer.
Note: Only the skeleton semi trailer with long tail design can be loaded into the container by docking the tail. Short-tail container chassis longer than 40 feet need to use other sea transportation methods.
