What is a Container Chassis semi-trailer?
Container chassis is also called skeletal trailer, is a type of semi-trailer designed to securely transport an intermodal container. Chassis are used by truckers to deliver containers between ports, railyards, container depots, and shipper facilities.
One of the challenges of using containers in transportation is that the containers come in different size. Hence, some containers require special vehicles for transportation because of their dimensions.
Companies require a transport solution that can adopt to different sizes and types of containers. In addition, many states have implemented bridging laws, which define the distance between the rear and front wheels of heavy-duty vehicles.
Container chassis trailer are designed to overcome these challenges.
