Euroliner trailers are fast becoming the industry standard trailer. Euroliners have sliding curtains which allow loading through the side as well as the back double doors and are also equipped with sliding roofs to accommodate over head loading by crane suitable for heavy and long pieces like machinery, pipes & tubes. Euroliners are generally 13.6 metres long, 2.5 metres wide and 2.5 metres high -although this can vary, with a common carrying capacity of between 23 to 26 tonnes. They can take palletised loads up to 33 euro pallets (120x80cm) or 26 standard pallets (120x100cm).
This is a freight industry term to describe roadfreight consolidation services for smaller consignments. See Pallets below.
For shipments under 10 pallets, individual consignments are loaded together on a trailer at a local depot for bulk movement from country to country. The trailer load is then broken down at the destination depot and put on smaller vehicles for the final delivery.
While the most popular destinations may be served by scheduled services almost daily, others are at least weekly. Transit times will include a day to allow for breaking down the trailer load for redistribution.
