One of the most successful if not the most successful trailer designs of all time the composite plate construction trailer revolutionized full truck load transport. Finally there was a full 101” wide high cube interior width trailer that offered great durability against aggressive forklift loading and unloading. Carriers saw their interior repair costs drop dramatically as the rigid plate walls with their solid recycled plastic cores handled just about every full truck load freight requirement with ease. Then new issues began to arise where plate walls began to separate from the bottom, corrosion in areas of dissimilar metals, rivets shearing and wall bulging out resulting in over-width tickets at scalehouses and MOT inspection stations. Enter Great Dane’s introduction of the composite plate wall trailer in 2005. Great Dane spec’d thicker panels that were stiffer and stronger than those that competition was using by as much as 18%. Rivets are bucked in reverse and while making manufacture a more complicated process this works to ensure that panel connections stay true and sound for hundreds of thousands of miles down the road. Great Dane offers the CP in 48″ and 24″ logistics centres options.
