When transport entrepreneur Mikko Jaakkola needed a new trailer for the sea container transport, he soon decided that it would be VAK's hydraulic V-slider. Jaakkola is convinced that the V-Slider is the most workable and reliable solution for transporting sea containers.
"For the driver this combination is easy to work with and reliable. The hydraulic sliding body makes it very easy to move the container", says the entrepreneur.
Jaakkola thinks that with V-Slider he has got everything in one package. Other alternatives would have requiered building additional structures on the chassis to make it easier to move the container.
"When I make big investments, I study the product and different alternatives very carefully. VAK*s V-Slider has it all", says Jaakkola, owner of two trucks.
The driver Sami Pohjolainen and the entrepreneur Mikko Jaakkola are satisfied with the new V-slider which makes it easy to transport and move sea containers.
The Swedish Skogströms Åkeri uses VAK's special trailers to deliver foodstuff all over Sweden because these extra long trailers save time, effort, and money. For the Swedish market VAK manufactures 19,6 metres long trailers – the whole vehicle being 23 metres in total. This super long trailer has two sets of steering axels which makes it easier to guide it through the crossroads and roundabouts.
"Our drivers have been really satisfied with the long trailers. They carry as much cargo as a conventional vehicle combination but loading and unloading is much faster as you don't have to release the trailer during the process. As a transport company we also save money by purchasing only one refrigeration unit instead of two", says Steen Skogström, the entrepreneur .
VAK is recognized for its special expertise. When you need insight in design and quality in manufacturing, VAK is the right partner for you. That is why for example the Uusikaupunki car factory's A-series Mercedes Benz -cars travel safely from the plant to the harbour in their tailor made VAK trailer.
