Linde Material Handling launched its logistics train at the LogiMAT trade fair last week.
The logistics train comprises a Linde P 50 C trailer with 5 tonnes of pulling force, four "intelligent" load trailers, which consist of a steel frame with six rollers, an electric lifting device for pallet frames, and a tiller with trailer coupling.
The operator can slide loaded dollies onto the load trailer and lift them off the ground at the touch of a button. The dolly is then lowered at the destination and slid onto the desired surface.
