Tri-Axle Container Chassis
The container chassis was manufactured as a light weight frame with a rear suspension and bolsters that had standardized twist locks on the ends. The frame of the chassis are not as beefy as their cousins the flatbed trailers, being that the the container frames themselves are self supporting loads, and so the weight is evenly distributed over the frame. Now chassis come in varied lengths (20 ft., 40 ft., 45 ft., 53 ft.), axle configurations (closed tandem, spread tandem, tri-axle, quad- axle), bolster configurations (2 bolster fixed, 8 pin, 12 pin), and suspension configurations (fixed, slider, spring, air ride) to name a few differences. Which type is right for your payloads?
