We Build & Manufacture Cargo Trailers Too!

Here at Alexander Trailers, when we say we can build you any kind of trailer that you might want, we really mean it!

We can build cargo trailers to secure and transport almost any type of load, whether this is for heavy industrial plant machinery or for carrying general goods and equipment. Cargo trailers can also be used to safely store tools and machinery onsite or carry goods around large sites.

Alexander Trailers will develop a cargo trailer to your exact specifications. We take into account critical factors such as how, where and when the trailer will be used. Loading requirements, load weight and height, access and transportation needs will also be taken into account as well as any conditions that are unique to your company or equipment. Our cargo trailers can provide load carrying solutions that are tailor-made to your business needs.

Check out some examples below, or get in touch with us to find out more here.

Nestle Water UK Ltd production plant

Moving parts and products around a production line is a key part of the production process, and something that shouldn’t be underestimated.

castor steer trolleys

Nestle Water UK Limited have recently opened a new production plant in Buxton and we have worked closely with them through their materials handling supplier to provide a solution to ensure that this can be done efficiently.

Torlley Coupling

The castor steer trolleys have been designed to carry and distribute the product to point of use on the line, the trolleys are towed in multiples, disconnected and positioned adjacent to the operator.

The castor wheel selection, drawbar design, auto rear couplings, rad stop ground brake and chassis design were all key to ensure maneuverability, durability and ease of use for the operator.

Production Line Equipment

The chassis was designed as a base to carry standard pallets with securing pockets to allow any configuration or load attachments, the photographs shows a shelving unit that is slot in/removable and adjustable, this allows the trolleys to be utilised to carry any load – capacity permitting!!

Kone Cranes take delivery of two new trailers

Last month Kone Cranes received 2 new trailers for one of their customers, the trailers are designed to store a 7,500kgs grab arm attachment within a recycling centre. The trailers will allow easy storage and then transportation of the load, as can be seen from the pictures it’s not an easy load to move!!!

The trailer has a capacity of 10,000kgs and has 2 cylindrical plates to the deck of the trailer with lashing points to secure the load. It is a single turntable trailer with press on band solid rubber tyres and a hand parking brake. This trailer is unusual as it is 3800mm wide which makes transport on the Highway very interesting. It also has a 3 coat paint specification to protect against the harsh environment in which they will be working.

The trailers provided a health and safety compliant solution in addition to improved productivity.
