CIMC (China International Marine Container) and Direct Chassis have jointly introduced the CIMC R8000 Series, a new 53-foot refrigerated trailer with a host of features and anti-corrosive components.

This trailer has a patented two-piece top rail that does not intrude into the sidewall insulation, creating a barrier to moisture. The corrugated roof design allows for expansion and contraction of roofing material due to hot and cold temperatures while keeping the roof tight. The nose area has been created so refrigeration units can be “slipped” easily on and off the trailer for repairs or replacement.

Other features include a sandwich panel foaming technology, high-gloss stainless steel top face and corner cover, rivetless door panel design, air-ride slider suspension, protected air and electrical wires gathered and bundled into separate channels for easier servicing, and a knurled floor surface.

Initially, the trailers will be built in mainland China and shipped to the United States. Beginning in October 2009, floor, sides, and roof panels will be shipped in containers from China to the United States for assembly.

The R8000 Series has been engineered to meet all US Department of Transportation regulations.

CIMC manufactures containers, trailers, and tank equipment in facilities worldwide. For more information, access www.cimc.com. Direct Chassis, a CIMC company, builds and remanufactures chassis and equipment. To learn more, visit www.directchassis.com.
