Functionally shaped, self-supporting longitudinal girder construction for smooth container transport. The Flex-Carrier has a patented profile shape of the continuous longitudinal girder lower belts and of the low-wear rolling surface tread. Moreover, it has a ramp for easier loading of the containers.


With flexible lashing points on the outer frame and corresponding slip protector, one or two skip containers of different sizes can be variably loaded.



We only use axles from renowned manufacturers. Air suspension chassis with disc brakes or drum brakes, including automatic lowering function

Paintwork in one RAL colour according to the customer’s wishes (except metallic colours), load securing elements in RAL 1003 signal yellow as standard.


Automatic blasting:

Before the paintwork, the trailer chassis are blasted in the automatic blasting machine specially designed for our trailer types, based on 12 consistently strong, automated and ring-shaped blast wheel turbines. Thanks to the special Hüffermann blasting abrasive, this results in a more homogeneous blasting pattern. Within the scope of the control process, additional blasting is performed manually, depending on the chassis design.


Priming: Application of an epoxy resin-based primer without electrostatics. Also for long-term and resilient corrosion protection.


Top coat: The 2-component top coat with a high solid content is individually applied in the desired colour (RAL) with the electrostatic method. As a result, even the smallest cracks are covered with paint and the protection and look is preserved over the years.


Sealing: After the assembly and the final approval of the vehicle from Quality Assurance, the vehicle is preserved at material contact points and transitions.  Preservation is accomplished with Dinitrol cavity wax.


Standard version without paintwork on the side collision protection, silver rims. Axles with black CDP coating. Add-on parts are galvanised.


Optional: Arc galvanising

Zinc wire is melted by an arc, atomised with compressed air and applied onto the freshly blasted surface of the chassis (without add-on parts). Together with the subsequent paintwork, this achieves corrosion protection with similar properties as hot-dip galvanising. Another advantage is the low heat input. This ensures that the structure of high-strength steels is not modified and large areas do not tend to warp.

Electrical arc galvanising offers a clear advantage in terms of the duration of protection, hardness, bonding strength, abrasion resistance, stone chipping resistance and edge protection.



Rear marking

-    ECE sign

Optional: Waste, parking or ADR signs

-    Wheel chocks (2)


Optional storage areas:

-    Standard storage box 600 x 500 x 500 mm

-    Stainless steel storage box

-    Storage area for nets in different sizes

-    Lashing chains for combined load securing

-    Pallet storage compartments



Turntable with sealed ball race and V-drawbar with 40 mm drawbar eye. Optional: Centre pillar drawbar or drawbar with adjustable length, different drawbar eye versions. Drawbar lowering device with air bellows control via a pneumatic valve outside of the hazard area. Field-tested lever arrangement, plus generously dimensioned lifting bellows for lifting and lowering the drawbar with low supply pressure. Lowering without ground contact (of the drawbar).



Two pairs of locking elements secure the roller container on the inside of the lower belt. Thanks to an eccentric effect, even slightly bent container belts are tightened with a tension force of approx. 2500 kg per element. It is operated with air valves on the left side of the trailer.


When transporting skip containers, they are secured against sliding in the direction of travel and to the sides with adjustable stops. The containers are locked to the rear on the rear container mounting block with transverse lashing.


Centring fix

On the Flex-Carrier, the patented Centring Fix makes it easier to set the lateral centring.



The time-saving and chain-free load securing locks the skip container on the tilt bearing in accordance with DIN 30720/ 30720-1. When transporting roller containers, the Multi-Fix is lowered to a neutral position.


OPTIONAL: Safety-Fix

The time-saving safety system is based on ratchet tensioners fastened on both sides. After installing the chains, the driver uses them to pull the container up to the stops. Afterwards, the driver only needs to tension one chain on each vehicle side at a lashing angle of 35 to 60 degrees to secure the container in the direction of travel with a positive-locking fit.
