L.I.T. goes with Kögel for volume transport in the automotive sector

Kögel Mega P55: Three metres loading height and just four metres total height

L.I.T. AG, with its headquarters in Brake, is extending its fleet with 50 new height-optimised Kögel Mega units. The volume miracle from the Swabian trailer manufacturer is thus playing an important role in the strategic growth strategy of this logistics, information and transport specialist. The trailers will be used mainly in the Just-in-Time business of the automobile industry.

The Kögel Mega P55 is ideally suited to the execution of volume transport. In addition, it meets the permissible overall height of four metres with a usable internal height of three metres and a semi-trailer coupling height of 91 centimetres. The Kögel Mega P55 uses an intelligent combination of tyre choice and a reduction in the semi-trailer throat from 90 to 55 millimetres to optimise the height – whilst retaining stability. A tare weight starting at 6.4 tons means that high levels of payload are possible.
The usable internal height of three metres makes the volume miracle the ideal trailer in the automotive sector. Loading and unloading stacked pallet cages is simple thanks to the standard mechanical-hydraulic lifting roof. This increases the side and rear through-loading height to three metres. The DIN 12642 Code XL certification means that no additional load securing is required for form-locked loading.

L.I.T. Special Equipment
The 50 new L.I.T. trailers for the automotive sector are equipped in accordance with Daimler guideline 9.5. This includes pallet stops and end wall doubling amongst other things. For safe ramp loading, additional support fixtures with mechanical lifting and lowering are mounted behind the axle unit. In addition, the trailers are fitted with RoRo equipment, with four pairs of heavy-duty lashing rings, for accompanied marine and ferry transport. For rapid and convenient coupling, the Mega trailers are also fitted with the Duo-Matic system in addition to the standard coupling heads.

"The clear advantages of the new Kögel Mega P55 and the much appreciated Kögel quality have really impressed us", says Ingo Schreiber, Managing Director at L.I.T. Cargo. "We were, once again, very impressed by the excellent local customer service provided by Kögel."

Kögel, a brand with a tradition going back more than 75 years, and which has achieved first place throughout Europe, is once again at the centre of things with their unmistakable experience and competence. With the takeover of Kögel in 2009, Ulrich Humbaur assumed an active entrepreneurial role which gave the brand the stability and continuity it deserves. This is further consolidated by the very sturdy equity ratio that Ulrich Humbaur has made available to his companies. Kögel has reinvented itself – by returning to the strengths which formerly made the company great: A passion for transport. Quality characterised by engineering. Innovation which is worthy of this name because it brings relevant customer value. And the reliability of an owner-led family company with long-term perspectives. In addition to products for the forwarding industry we now have versions for the construction industry, a field which is not entirely new for Kögel.
