Trend Four: Being efficient, China semi-trailers need to be maintained for longer time
Nowadays, China’s logistics has developed rapidly. Whether it is a logistics company or an individual, the annual mileage of the truck is constantly increasing. It is normal for a semi-trailer to run 150,000 kilometers a year. For some semi-trailer of some logistics companies, the mileage often reaches more than 300,000 kilometers.
Nowadays, most of the ordinary axles are maintained once after they are used for 100,000 kilometers. For example, the truck used for the special logistics runs 300,000 kilometers per year. The axle head needs to be maintained for three times a year. This not only delays the running efficiency of the vehicle, but also distracts the user. Using axles with long maintenance time can put more energy for the operation of the vehicle. For example, the BPW 400K axle can be maintained after being used for 400,000 km. This kind of axle with long maintenance time can better improve the operational efficiency of the semi-trailer. Semi-trailers will become more efficient, and the maintenance of the axle will become a priority in the future.
It is worth mentioning that the efficiency of the semi-trailer is not limited to the long maintenance time of the axle in the future. For example, the axle which is equipped with the hub-generator axle developed by BPW can have electricity output in the driving and braking processes. Its power can be used for the refrigerated semi-trailer. For example, the solar panel power board installed on the semi-trailer will generate electricity. The application of these technologies will also make the semi-trailer more efficient and energy-saving.
Trend Five: Being specialized, the semi-trailer used for special purpose is inevitable
Many semi-trailers carried goods that did not match their operating conditions on the road for quite a long period of time. This not only disturbs the market order, but also has hidden danger.
For example, ordinary dropside semi-trailers transport liquid cargo instead of tanker trucks. Some stake body semi trailers are used to transport frozen goods which are covered by quilts. This kind of transportation is likely to cause the unfreezing of frozen goods and affect quality of frozen goods.
