Chapter 1: What is a skeletal trailer?

A skeletal trailer, also known as a container chassis or simply a skeleton, is a trailer specifically designed to transport intermodal containers. It consists of a frame with axles and wheels, but no cargo-carrying body or walls. The skeletal trailer is primarily used in combination with shipping containers of various sizes, allowing for easy transportation of goods from one mode of transport (such as ships or trains) to another (such as trucks). The absence of a cargo body makes skeletal trailers lightweight and improves their versatility, as they can accommodate different container sizes and types.

They will usually have between four and twelve container twist locks so that a driver can load a range of different configurations (e.g. 2x 20-foot or 1x 40-foot).

Chapter 3: What is the best means of securing the container to the skeletal semi trailer?

The best means of securing a container to a skeletal semi-trailer is by following these steps:

1. Positioning: Ensure that the container is properly aligned and centered on the skeletal trailer. The container should rest evenly on the trailer's chassis and the corner fittings of the container should match up with the trailer's twist locks.

2. Twist Locks: Use twist locks to secure the container to the skeletal trailer for sale. Twist locks are metal locking mechanisms located on the trailer's gooseneck or chassis, which engage with the corner fittings on the container. The number of twist locks may vary depending on the trailer's design, but typically there are four to lock each corner of the container.

3. Locking Procedure: Align the twist lock over the corner fitting on the container and lower it to engage both the upper and lower parts of the lock onto the container's fitting. Ensure that both halves of the twist lock are securely locked in place. Repeat this process for each twist lock on the skeletal trailer in Ghana.

These can include the use of chains, straps, or tensioning devices to secure the container further to the skeletal semi trailer. Always comply with any additional guidelines provided.

6. Regular Check-ups: Regularly inspect the twist locks, safety pins, and additional securing measures during transit stops to ensure they remain secure. Also, periodically verify the overall condition of the container and trailer for any signs of wear or damage that may affect the security.
