New Highway Trailer to Make Job Easier for Large Size Shipments

COCOA/FLORIDA, April 16, 2015 - TII Group, which considers itself the worldwide leader for the production of heavy transport vehicles, has introduced a new trailer for North American markets. The new offering, Scheuerle Highway Tariler MES (Modular Extra Strong) complements the earlier non- modular models by TII.

TII claims that its new offering will meet the requirements for transporting oversize as well as concentrated loads in one vehicle, thus enabling its owner to perform an unprecedented range of transport jobs with just one modular vehicle. The trailer will allow transporters to extend their range of service. While the semi trailer version will enable the transporters to go for everyday jobs, the modular trailer will enable them to accept new jobs with extra long or concentrated loads. The HighwayTrailer MES comes with hydraulic axles, precise steering and a lift/lower function to pick up loads.

“Our customers asked for a multifunctional, extra-sturdy but low weight modular solution and we developed it” says Roland Fischer, Area Manager Sales at the TII Sales. “The Scheuerle HighwayTrailer MES allows a configuration as a semi-trailer for all kinds of everyday’s loads as well as an assembly with two platform trailers for an extremely long load like a splitter column, vessels or a large girder weighing up to 115 tons. The new trailer saves money and will open new business possibilities for our customers” Fischer further says.
