Moving floor transport

"Moving floors" on trailers have been used for a long time in agriculture. These serve as chain conveyors for distributing fertiliser or for discharging straw or hay. The sliding floor system, also known as walking floor system, has been adapted to transport logistics.

Moving floor transport: time-saving in all aspects

We are on the go with our self-unloading trailers both nationally and internationally for the agricultural industry. We transport bulk goods every day with about 30 vehicles, sometimes even directly from the field to the processing in the animal feed or food industry. Transportation using walking floor transport has many advantages, one of which is space saving loading and unloading. The raw materials can be introduced over the opening roof of the semi-trailer and discharged to the unloading area without the additional use of floor conveyors. The trailer does not have to be tipped or hydraulically raised for this, which means that no larger free space is needed other than the truck’s own clearance height. Our vehicle’s trailers are partly equipped with side doors so as to enable side loading and unloading where necessary.

Bulk materials, bales or pallets

Although sliding floor haulage is used primarily for the transport of lighter bulk materials, the system of moving floors also allows the conveyance of other materials. Of course the sliding floor is ideal for agricultural raw materials like:

  • Wheat
  • Corn
  • Soya

Whereby, of course, GMP regulations are complied with. Likewise, plastic granulate in differing grain size or pressed bails, big bags and palletised goods can also be transported using our walking floor trailers. The "walking floor" always allows a comfortable and simple way of loading and unloading, even when the space available is cramped, or when certain loading and unloading aids are not available. Our experienced and well-trained drivers know what is best.

We are your partner for the national and trans-national transport of high-value raw materials under controlled conditions.
