Singapore-based Bok Seng Logistics Pte Ltd has invested for the first time in a transport solution from Goldhofer, with the acquisition of two MPA 8 semitrailers.
“We are convinced that the two eight-axle trailers with the MacPherson axle system are a perfect fit for our logistics portfolio,” said Vincent Teo, senior director at Bok Seng Logistics.
Bok Seng specifically chose the MPA version because of the advantages of the low-maintenance axle technology in combination with a high axle load and the “extremely” low loading height, according to Goldhofer.
The MPA 8 has an axle load of 15.6 t per axle line. So, each vehicle can easily handle operations with a total weight of more than 150 t. They can carry high and wide loads with unit weights of up to 120 t, as well as long and heavy items such as concrete trusses, bridge elements and more, thanks to a 10.8-m loading deck extension for a total length of 25.3 m.
Bok Seng attached particular importance to the low loading height of 885 mm, as the company needs to handle a large number of upcoming long-distance journeys with railroad cars on routes with bridges and tunnels, explained Goldhofer. With a winch mounted on the gooseneck for this purpose, the cars can be quickly pulled onto the loading deck.
Bok Seng has been active in the lifting and heavy haulage industry for more than 40 years. From intermodal transportation and warehousing to the management of large-scale and complex logistics projects, the company offers a wide range of services across the Southeast Asian region.
