What cargo can a skeleton semi truck carry? What is the length limit of the skeleton semi trailer?

Skeleton semi-trailer is a semi-trailer whose frame is welded by the longitudinal beam, beam and front and rear end beams. It is similar to the flat semi-trailer in appearance, but the steel plate is replaced by the frame. From the top of the body, the bottom of the semi-trailer is bare, so the goods transported are typically special.

For skeleton semi-trailer, no matter container or dangerous goods tank box, all belong to the category of goods, only the vehicle skeleton belongs to the body structure.

According to GB1589, the length limit of the skeleton semi-trailer is 13.95 meters, while the length limit of the van semi-trailer is 13.75 meters. The reason for this difference is that the maximum standard container of Custom semi trailer manufacturers in the current market is 45 feet, or 13.715 meters. In order to facilitate the transportation of these containers, the length limit of skeleton semi trailer is relaxed accordingly.

Compared with the general semi-trailer, the skeleton semi-trailer is lighter in weight, which can transport additional goods under the regulations and standards. At the same time, it can save fuel and reduce vehicle costs, which can improve transportation efficiency to a certain extent. Moreover, it is 20cm further than the van semi-trailer under the regulations, which increases the volume of a certain container. This lets numerous express enterprises begin to choose to use skeleton cars instead of the original van.
