Intermodal Innovation Carries 15% More Freight

MALCOLM Logistics have continued their intermodal innovation with SDC Trailers’ new bespoke design 15.6m extended skeletal trailer for use with their 50ft big box containers.

The Linwood based operator collaborated closely with SDC’s engineering team to develop a solution that would further enhance their operations on the fuel saving trailer, which succeeds their first concept longer length skeletal trailer developed in 2014.

Andrew Malcolm, chief executive of The Malcolm Group said: ‘SDC’s 15.6m extended skeletal trailers allow our customers to move 15% more freight per journey over the largest available conventional container and by using a combination of our eco-friendly road and rail services, we are able to achieve a 13% reduction in CO2 emissions per pallet.
