NatRoad Conference hears about heavy duty solution

Freighter’s general manager Rod Cunningham addressed the recent 2012 NatRoad Conference on Queensland’s Gold Coast and discussed the issues facing the transport industry, as increasingly more operators field requests to transport equipment for the mining boom, and the need for purpose-built equipment for this sector. “There is an increasing amount of transport work coming from the mining industry with more growth on the way,” Rod Cunningham said. “One of the key things that operators need to be careful of when undertaking these jobs is the need for the appropriate trailer equipment to suit the task. The mining industry differs from other industries in that it often involves carrying heavy loads off-road or over unsealed roads in poor condition. These factors can often combine to damage or break an ordinary trailer designed for predominantly highway use. Freighter has purpose designed the Outback Series of trailers for just this requirement; to carry heavy equipment on terrain of varying quality. Reinforced main rails with more cross-members, heavy duty combing rails and heavy duty tow couplings are just some of the features we’ve incorporated to increase durability,” he said. MaxiTRANS, of which Freighter is just one part, supported the 2012 NatRoad Conference as a Gold Sponsor and provided a Freighter Outback drop-deck semi-trailer for sale at the event’s annual dinner auction.
