There are many different kinds of trailers, for example for the transport of cars on two stories or special bodies for the transport of beverages or gas bottles. There are also trailers with the body of a concrete mixer, tank trailers and silo trailers. Silo trailers are often found in construction -, chemical – and food industry.
