In addition, it exhibited the two types of vehicles that were rated by European consumers as the best semitrailers made in China: the 13.6m side curtain semitrailers for Australian market that features lightweight vehicle body and highlight powder coating technique, is equipped with air guide sleeve, sliding top and double-side stakes to reduce wind resistance and fuel consumption, embraces the European standard compliant 30mm skid-proof, wear-proof and easy-to-repair composite floor, and boasts brand new European standard flattening and beautiful side curtains; and the 13.6m dry van semitrailers for North American market that comes in the American-style no-girder and load-bearing van body structure and with high-strength ultra-thin side board and bamboo floor and are popular with customers with high strength, lightweight and large volume.
With the enforcement of the national standard GB1589-2016, the national size standard of the second-generation semitrailers is on a par with the European standard. In particular, CIMC Vehicles’ side curtain semitrailers and central axle car carriers developed and manufactured in accordance with the national standard have become the most commonly used vehicle types in Europe. So far, with the “Global Operation” principle, the company has launched the international series of semitrailers that have passed the rigorous tests of the mainstream markets in North America. This has not only brought greater glory to “Made-in-China”, but also tremendously bolstered the confidence of domestic special-purpose vehicles to compete with well-established brands on global market.
