First Nooteboom 4+6 low loader combination in Germany for Fröhlich Bau Kran und Baustellenlogistik
Fröhlich Bau Kran und Baustellenlogistik takes the first Nooteboom 4+6 EURO-PX low loader into service for Germany. Largest Nooteboom low loader offers 250 tons of train weight The company Fröhlich Bau Kran und Baustellenlogistik from Rangsdorf (D) has expanded its fleet with the largest low loader in the Nooteboom EURO-PX low loader program. It concerns the EURO-143-46ICP. Mr. Rainer Fröhlich is the first transporter in Germany to use this impressive low loader combination with a train weight up to 250 tons for his customers. This combination with an axle distance of 1.51 meters is optimized for the German legislation. Due to the 12 tonne axle load at 80kmh loads of approx. 100 tonnes can be efficiently transported in and through Germany. These specifications considerably simplify the permit procedures in the individual German federal states. Fröhlich’s latest addition is used for the transport of large and heavy loads of over 85 tons such as construction machinery general cargo and crane loaded goods such as bridge constructions. Rainer Frohlich managing director and owner of Fröhlich Bau Kran und Baustellenlogistik: “Our relationship with Nooteboom has existed since our company was founded in 2014. Our experience in recent years with Nooteboom trailers and the service and support from the Nooteboom organization gave us the confidence to award this large order to Nooteboom. Nooteboom has an excellent reputation in the field of low-loaders with hydraulically steered pendulum axles. Moreover the low loaders are very easy to operate for our drivers compared to alternative brands. The big advantage is that we can now easily combine all types of low loader configurations. For us this is a much cheaper and more efficient alternative than the more complex and more expensive module trailers”. Complete package Besides the purchase of the 4+6 low loader the investment also includes an extra 2-axle IC Interdolly and several loading floors. The extendable wide load floor the extendable spine bed with highlow matrasses and the close coupled bridge pieces offer a special versatility. There are also 5-metre long extension beams that can be combined with both the wide load floor and the spine bed. This results in an effective load floor of 16 metres in length. If the length is not sufficient it is possible to mount 2 heavy load carriers with a load capacity of 100 tons on the 4-axle interdolly and the 6-axle axle bogie. This allows long goods up to 40 metres to be transported. When using the close coupled bridge pieces the low loader can easily be converted to for example a 10 axle semi low loader. In this configuration the load capacity increases to well over 100 tons. All configurations of his latest investment are in the vehicle database of NoVAB the Nooteboom axle load calculation program that Mr Fröhlich uses to determine the vehicle combination for carrying a specific load. NOVAB provides a quick overview of how the load should be positioned and transported on the low loader so that the permissible axle load is not exceeded. An extra highlight on the trailer is the built-in TPMS system. This tire pressure monitoring system specially developed by Goodyear is installed in all 44 tires. The driver benefits from constant monitoring and receives an error message if a problem occurs with one of the tyres. This allows the driver to react immediately before unforeseen situations arise.

Dutch haulier Bolk Transport has made a major investment of in total 10 Nooteboom semi lowloaders to strengthen their trailer fleet. Delivery of the 2- and 3-axle extendible Multitrailers has been started. The first MCO-38-02VL with power steered axles and manual steering was collected last week.

Furthermore this stepframe trailer is executed with a demountable bolster which also can be used as a long load carrier. This 2-axle semi lowloader is built with a long axle distance of 181 meter and has therefore 10ton axle load on registration instead of 9 tons.
