CASES

Double delivery to Kiitosimeon Oy, April 2017

 

The delivery to Kiitosimeon Oy included two Truck-Safe® systems consisting of compressed-air tensioners on the right side of the trailer. The trailers have an openable roof, and an openable side for loading. Truck-Safe’s patented suspension system allows the FIX Road® cargo-securing cover to move in tandem with the trailer’s openable roof and prevents it from getting in the way during loading or unloading. This saves a great deal of time and enables the customer to make more daily transports with a smaller number of transport vehicles on the road. With a normal lashing system, Kiitosimeon Oy would have needed more trailers to manage so many daily transports.

Shipment: cellulose, from the factory to the port

Transport route: 17 km in Kemi, Finland

Frequency of transport: over 20 transports/day/vehicle

Capacity: 24 t/trailer

Vehicles: Two 13.6m-long trailers with HCT (High Capacity Transport) permits

Truck-Safe secured 40,000 loads of Tapio Ylisuvanto Oy between 2013 and 2017

 

The delivery, in 2013, included a Truck-Safe® system that was built with compressed-air tensioners on one side of the trailer and the body of the vehicle. The ceiling and other side of the trailer were openable and allowed loading from the side. Truck-Safe’s patented suspension system for the FIX Road® cargo securing cover also prevented the cover from getting in the way during loading or unloading. That way, the cover and securing strips were kept clean, giving them a much longer lifespan than traditional lashing cords. The truck combination with Truck-Safe was in daily use for 3.5 years, until April 2017, and delivered a total of approx. 40,000 loads. Achieving the same number of loads with manual cargo securing would have required the customer to either spend a great deal more time or use more vehicles.

Shipment: cellulose, from the factory to the port

Transport route: 17 km in Kemi, Finland

Frequency of transport: over 20 transports/day/vehicle

Capacity: 24 t/trailer, 18 t/truck

Vehicles: 13.6m-long trailer + 8m truck

Double delivery to Pohjaset Oy, November 2017

 

The delivery to Pohjaset Oy involved the installation of the Truck-Safe® system on two trailers used for multiple daily transports of cellulose and sawed lumber. The system was built with compressed-air tensioners on one side of the trailer, where the cargo is lashed automatically with the help of a durable FIX Road® cargo-securing cover. The suspended cargo-securing cover moves in tandem with the openable roof of the cargo space, and allows loading and loading through one side. Truck-Safe superbly suits Pohjaset Oy’s need to  shift loads, with each transport, between cellulose and sawed lumber. The automatic lashing guarantees an optimal lashing result each time.

Shipment: cellulose one way, sawed lumber the other way

Transport route: 110 km Kemi–Oulu, Finland

Transport frequency: 4–6 transports/day/vehicle

Capacity: maximal volume 170 m3; maximal weight of load: 76 t for cellulose, or 70 t for sawed lumber

Vehicles: Two 13.6m-long trailers with HCT (High Capacity Transport) permits

Three deliveries to PM Transport Ab during 2015 and 2016

 

PM Transport Ab has had Truck-Safe® installed in its three truck combinations. After the first two systems proved to be a success, it was soon time for a third. The first two systems installed in 2015 use electric winches, whereas the third, from 2016, consists of compressed-air tensioners. Both the winches and the compressed-air tensioners  are installed on the right side of the trailer, and enable loading from the left side. Truck-Safe’s patented suspension system allows the cargo-securing cover to move in tandem with the truck combination’s openable roof, which makes both loading and unloading easier and faster.

Shipment: cellulose, from the factory to the port

Transport route: 18 km in Sundsvall, Sweden

Transport frequency: 18 transports/day/vehicle

Capacity: 32 t/long trailer + 18 t/central axle trailer

Vehicles: three 12m-long trailers + three 8m-long central axle trailers

Four systems to UPM Paper in Rauma during 2017 and 2018

 

NWE is working on a joint venture with UPM Oy and Siimet Oy, setting the new standards for automatic cargo securing.  With the patented FIX Truck-Safe® system, NWE is putting together the missing pieces in the logistics chain.

In the video you can see up to 42 tons of paper rolls transported from the UPM mill to the harbor in Rauma,  Finland. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TM18qy3nrW4. The article related to the video in Finnish language is here: http://www.koneporssi.com/uutiset/paperia-maailmalle/

The largest rolls are close to 4m wide standing upright and their weight is about 5 tons each. Rolls with smaller widths are placed above each other to max. 4m high staples. Loading is automatic and when the trailer superstructure is lowered to place and locked the tensioning of the cargo securing starts. FIX Truck-Safe® is based on FIX Road® cargo securing tarpaulin, pneumatic tensioners and a control including supervision of tensioning force. In this case the tensioners are placed inside the cargo space at the lower edge of the side walls because the unloading is done with forklifts from both sides and then tensioners, fabric and straps are lifted with the superstructure away from unloading functions.

Shipment: paper rolls standing upright, from the factory to the port

Transport route: 4 km in Rauma, Finland

Transport frequency: 1-2 transports/hour day and night / 4 vehicles

Capacity: 42 t/trailer

Vehicles: four 13m-long trailers with lifting superstructure and moving floor
