Container trailers are available in multiple variations. Tradus lists empty trailers, empty containers and a combination of the both. Many trailer containers are suited for construction work and construction waste, but some serve different purposes such as refrigeration or sanitation. Also listed are reefers, mobile homes, office cabins for construction sites, and containers for gas and chemical substances. They remain popular in transport.
Different sizes and shapes
Container trailers look different depending on the job they need to do. They all have wheels, but the size and shape of the container itself may vary. Containers can be stacked together on a big trailer, but can also be used for single-container transport. The trailers commonly consist of a strong framework or chassis with a bed or deck on which the container is placed. The container can sometimes roll on the bed with help from wheels on the axle lines.
The chassis of a container trailer is either flat or gooseneck. In most cases, the container trailer has its own braking system. If the trailer should get loose from the pulling vehicle, it must be able to brake on its own. The hydraulic drive system of the container controls the braking system, plus the movement of the wheels. The heavy weight of the container must then be carried by the wheels, that need to be of top quality.
