WETRALOG GmbH, an independent food logistics company of the Westfleisch Group since 2003, has purchased fifteen Premium freezer box trailers for its fleet from Kögel. The international food forwarding company WETRALOG is responsible for the entire logistics division of the Westfleisch Group and specialises in empty container logistics, livestock transport and factory traffic for the individual Westfleisch sites. The forwarding company will primarily use the new Kögel refrigerated semi-trailers to transport meat for the specialist retail and wholesale industry. WETRALOG was particularly impressed by the standard equipment and the high degree of individualisation of the Kögel refrigerated boxes.
Standard highlights of the Kögel Cool – PurFerro quality
To make the loading and unloading process as quiet as possible, Kögel coolers are fitted with low-noise aluminium floors as standard. In the floor area, the premium refrigerated boxes come with welded aluminium floor pans for increased hygiene and simpler cleaning. The floor pans also prevent moisture from penetrating the load-bearing structures, which significantly increases the service life and cost-effectiveness of the trailer. It goes without saying that the trailer also fulfils the HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) requirements for safeguarding consumer health with regard to temperature-controlled food transports in international goods traffic. The refrigerated boxes also comply with ATP/FRC requirements. The box bodies of the all-purpose refrigerated version of the Kögel Cool – PurFerro quality trailers are composed of a high-quality, optimised, special foam polymer, which has strong insulating properties and is 100-percent CFC-free. The robust, easy-to-maintain steel ceiling layer is also coated with hard PVC film on the inside. The 60-mm-thick walls, 85-mm-thick roof, and 125-mm-thick floor are made by Kögel and ensure a low thermal transfer coefficient (K-value). This efficient protection against temperature effects reduces energy consumption and cuts costs. The trailers also come with a load-securing certificate as standard, in accordance with EN 12642 Code XL. This shows that they are particularly suitable for the form-locked transport of general cargo and palletised goods.
