This terminal trailer is adjustable to meet your desired maneuverability conditions for loading and offloading. Adjustments to axle spacing can also be made based on your needs.

(3)Tipper chassis trailer

CIMC tipping chassis trailers have a different structure than other container trailers. This model of trailers has an apparatus that simplifies the process of loading a container on the trailer bed.

The container chassis trailer comes with a hydraulic lifting cylinder that contracts longitudinally to facilitate loading and on the other hand, they extend in an outward manner to enhance the offloading process. The pivotal drive on the upper frame translates to a change in the distance between the roller and the securement point of the cable in relation to the lower frame. This results in the lift and movement of the loaded container without the need to search for external equipment such as a winch device to trigger the desired distance.

6. How to Choose the Right CIMC shipping container Trailer?

Your choice first depends on your preference for the type of work you need to accomplish. Usually, the selection is based on the following conditions:

1. Application
If you use a CIMC Container Chassis trailer to transport not only containers but also some other goods, it is best to choose the type of flatbed trailer. Choose according to your needs, you can let professionals provide you with buying advice.

2. Price

Cost is also an important factor to consider in your choice of a trailer. If all you need is a simple trailer for a simple application, it wouldn’t be wise to choose the container tilt trailer. The container tilt type trailer has a higher price than the rest. This is primarily due to its advanced lifting system. A flatbed or a container chassis will do.

3.Weight Capacity Requirements

All these CIMC container chassis trailer can carry a considerable amount of weight. However, the 2 axles / 3 axles used container chassis trailer is of much help when weight considerations are to be made. Its construction has primarily been made to provide a chassis that can help you carry high weight containers. Most importantly, this can be adjusted to meet your desired conditions of maneuverability, loading, offloading and axle spacing.

4. Number of Axles

Based on the amount of cargo to carry, trailer considerations can be made looking at the number of axles for each trailer. They could be 2 axles or 3 axles. Don’t expect one with more than 3 axles because a container’s max weight capacity is 30 tons. For instance, the flatbed trailer structure has the capability of supporting a number of wheel axle assemblies at different positions along the trailer length.

7. Points to note when buying a skeleton trailer

1. Frame of container transport trailer

The Frame is the main load bearing part, which is composed of a beam, a side beam, a beam, a floor, and a suspension.

CIMC main beam made of Q345 high strength steel has the higher bearing capacity and service life of more than 10 years, CIMC container chassis uses automatic arc-submerging welding method to weld the main beam, there isn’t interface between the steel plate,it can ensure the integrated main beam, so the main beam is stronger and more durable.

The thickness of the beam part depends on whether the thickness is an international standard. The international standard for the frame of the skeleton car is 14/8/16 mm. The material of the steel plate in the middle of the beam is Q345B or manganese steel with a thickness of 8mm. Many unreliable suppliers will use 6mm Thickness beam slabs to save costs, but the carrying capacity was reduced by 26%. The international standard thickness of the middle part of the beam must be 8mm.

Locks, CIMC container trailer is equipped with 12 sets of locks, which can be used to transport a 40 foot container or two 20 foot containers, or a 20 foot container alone.

2. Braking system

Braking system, effective braking, fast braking response, braking distance reduced by more than 5m The brake system of Wabco can also be selected.

3.Suspension of skeleton trailer

The suspension of the CIMC container chassis is made of special high-strength rigid steel, 70mm center balance pin, Other factories use light suspension, the pin is only 45mm, the service life is short, it will cause abnormal wear.

The suspension is reinforced at the front and rear, left and right. The separate road conditions for Africa are to meet the requirements of dirt road surface and poor road conditions.

4. Axles and tires of the container chassis trailer


The axles of the CIMC skeletal trailer are divided into three types: 13 ton axles, 13 ton axles + 16 ton brake system axles, 16 ton axles.


The container chassis uses a vacuum tire with better heat dissipation performance, the model is 12R22.5.

5. Design

Due to its application and use, container chassis trailers are made of high-strength materials. It is a rugged structure designed to provide you with the services you need without having to do a lot of manufacturing work through high-quality welding techniques that have been tried and tested to ensure that the skeletal trailer meets high quality standards.

CIMC shipping container trailer uses polyurethane paint, high adhesion, high chroma, beautiful color.

8. Different types of suspensions for CIMC container trailer

Mechanical suspension: The mechanical suspension is CIMC container chassis common leaf spring. It is mainly composed of leaf spring, suspension support (commonly known as lifting ear), connecting rod, U-bolt and other parts. The longitudinal force of the body falls directly on an axle. It is reliable, and easy to maintain.

Bogie suspension: The CIMC container chassis trailer bogie suspension is to reduce the common leaf spring front and rear brackets to a single bracket connected to the car body. Compared with ordinary leaf spring suspension, the bearing capacity of bogie suspension is bigger.

Air suspension: The most obvious feature of an air suspension is its airbag-type air spring. The weight of the air spring itself is relatively light, the CIMC container chassis air medium friction in the airbag is small, there is almost no noise during operation, and its life is 2-3 times that of the leaf spring. Air suspension for CIMC container chassis trailer is mostly in high-end fields such as precision instrument transportation and hazardous chemical transportation.
