As our readers are acutely aware, automotive businesses that specialise in containerised car transport operate in a very competitive sector, where opportunities to bring costs down sustainably simply can't be missed. These businesses compete with local as well as international companies with wide-reaching networks, interests, and investments.
So, for anyone with a vested interest in reusable container racking systems, choosing the right reusable racking system provider can be a make-or-break decision. But they are not created equal, and even good quality container racking systems can fail to deliver if they're not cleverly designed and versatile enough. With Trans-Rak systems, the proof is in the pudding. Here are some of the reasons automotive businesses should trust Trans-Rak for their containerised car transport:
Trans-Rak systems are suitable for a wide range of applications. For instance, the EL-RAK system can be loaded externally and then moved into the container racking systems with the vehicles. This makes it ideal for electric and hybrid cars or other battery-powered vehicles. Likewise, the DL-RAK can be used to load and strap in wide vehicles from outside the container, so the driver doesn't need to squeeze out of it in the container. The SKD-RAK system is ideal for vehicle bodies, which can be loaded with or without other parts and sub-assemblies. The R-RAK system features wheel trays, straps, and chocks that position 4x4s, motorbikes, or even trucks into place after lifting and tilting them, to make use of every inch of space.
Once they reach their destination, Trans-Rak systems can be repositioned for their return journey. Because they collapse and pack up neatly into pods, they can be reconfigured for immediate reuse, or sent back either by themselves, with other racking systems, or with other goods. 60 R-RAK or 45 EL-RAK pods can fit into a 40ft. HC container. Likewise, 200 DL-RAKs or 40 SKD-RAKs can be repositioned and returned in a single container. Unlike other racking systems that don't fold or collapse, all of our racks can also be reused for up to a decade.
Not only can Trans-Rak systems be used to transport a diverse range of vehicles within a consignment, but also within an individual container. Thanks to 3D modelling software, which is made available to all prospective customers when they request a quote, it's much easier to visualise the configurations of vehicles in each container. This, in turn, makes it much easier to find ways to mix and match vehicles of any shape and size, such as full-size SUVs, motorbikes, race cars, vans, trucks, etc. in such a way that they slot and make the most of every inch of usable space. In so doing, our customers minimise the number of containers, racks, handling, and equipment required for each consignment, which translates into sizable savings and ROI boosts.
