Improvements made by car carrier equipment manufacturer Kaessbohrer have opened up a new possibilities for car loading, thus asking more from drivers that operate the equipment. The new Metago Pro trailer is equipped with a twin-axle, that experienced truck drivers can use to load bigger and more complex cargoes for transportation.

Nowadays, the cars get heavier and bigger every year. That means that the efficient loading of the cars for transport companies is becoming a mission impossible. Kaessbohrer’s Metago Pro car carrier trailer with twin-axle is a solution and a new way to go. Proved by Pēteris Ozoliņš, Kurbads driver, who recently loaded and transported seven BMW “X6” cars. It would not be possible without the additional axle.
“The benefit from the additional axle is crucial. The cargo load is significantly increased, bigger and heavier vehicles can be transported. The additional axle allows to increase the cargo load by three tonnes, that opens the way to load one more car,” says one of the most experienced Kurbads drivers Pēteris Ozoliņš. He has been using Metago Pro with the twin-axle for more than half a year.
“I strongly believe that looking in the future this equipment is a must for the vehicle transportation professionals, becauce at the moment in Lithuania and Poland there are special points on the highway where the load of the truck is checked automatically with a radar. Everything has to be right all the time.”
