With more than 40 years of experience, Bok Seng Logistics PTE LTD Singapore has recently decided to invest in a transport solution from Goldhofer for the first time in the company’s history. The lifting and heavy haulage specialist from the Southeast Asian region has opted for two 8-axle »MPA« semitrailers that have now been delivered. Bok Seng chose the »MPA« version because of the advantages of the low-maintenance axle technology in combination with a high axle load and the low loading height. “We are convinced that the two 8-axle trailers with the MacPherson axle technology are a perfect fit for our logistics portfolio,” says a pleased Teo Vincent, Senior Director at Bok Seng Logistics.
The »MPA« 8 provides an axle load of 15.6 t per axle line. So each vehicle can handle operations with a total weight of more than 150 tons. They can carry high and wide loads with unit weights of up to 120 tons as well as long and heavy items such as concrete trusses, bridge elements, etc. – 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, which they need to handle a large number of upcoming long-distance journeys with railroad wagons on routes with bridges and tunnels. With a winch mounted on the gooseneck for this purpose, the wagons can be quickly pulled onto the loading deck.
