UIC TRIMOTRANS LOAD UNITS

A wide array of load units are used for combined transport across Europe. Containers and swap containers are the load units most commonly used.

In the course of the cooperation agreement for EU project TRIMOTRANS (developing new intermodal load units and associated adapters for the trimodal transport of material containers within Europe), under the leadership of Zentrum für angewandte Forschung und Technologie e.V. at the Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Dresden (FH), WERNER & WEBER played a decisive role in the development of the 30' intermodal load unit, as a primary partner. In order to achieve optimum handling of the goods, this load unit combines for the first time the features of our various ISO containers, roll off containers and swap bodies. The container was constructed, approved, and a patent registered by WERNER & WEBER.

WERNER & WEBER supplied the so-called MOCO (MOntan COntainer) to MONTAN Spedition, which they developed especially for use in combined transport (preliminary and subsequent leg on the road, main leg by rail). Different MOCO variants were built, including special MOCOs for loose bulk goods, steel and metal products and also for palletised goods.
