NOTHEGGER Forwarding Company relies on thirty new Kögel Cargo Rail

 NOTHEGGER trusts in Kögel quality
 Kögel Cargo Rail: Ideal for multi-model traffic


NOTHEGGER Transport Logistik GmbH located in the Tyrollean town of St. Ulrich is including thirty new Kögel Cargo Rail into its fleet. In this way Nothegger is making a considerable contribution to environmental protection. The forwarding company is putting 50 million road kilometres a year on rail and thus reduces CO2 emission by 40,000 tons. For this reason, the decision in favour of the new Kögel Cargo Rail was taken intentionally.

Framework for railway deployment
The chassis frame reinforced to withstand multi-model traffic has been fitted with a coupling plate with 2" kingpins in conformity with German standard DIN 74080 / ISO 337.The gripper tarpaulin protection made of aramide fabric and a foldable under-run guard make the Cargo Rail loadable to railway systems. Kögel Cargo Rail has been designed for loading to pocket wagon of type 1a.Thus, it can be used flexibly on all conventional railway transport wagons, such as T 2000, Mega 2, T 3000, Twin, T5 and T 4.2.A raised centre distance permits loading by crane. Like all Kögel vehicles, the entire vehicle frame of Kögel Cargo Rail is also protected against corrosion permanently by dip-paint coat (KTL) nano ceramic coating technique and subsequent paint finish.

Technical data
Given a robust chassis with an empty weight as from 6,680 kg, the rail-loadable cargo still has generous payload reserves. The technically feasible fifth wheel load on NOTHEGGER trailers amounts to 15,000 kg and the permissible overall weight for type approval in Austria is 33,000 kg. All-in-all the vehicle has a total length of 13,950 mm and a width of 2,550 mm.

For many years already we have been loyal customers of Kögel, as we have a very high opinion of the quality supplied. For this reason, it was clear to us right from the beginning that we would use Kögel trailers for the expansion of our fleet", says Karl Nothegger jun., managing director of NOTHEGGER Transport Logistik GmbH
Moreover, Hochstaffl Nutzfahrzeuge GmbH ensures excellent support in Austria.“
