SURFACE TRANSPORT EQUIPMENT. HAULAGE EQUIPMENT

LE MATERIEL DE TRANSPORT TERRESTRE. LE MATERIEL DE MANUTENTION

This article gives the complete tabulated list of manufacturers of container chassis used in France, a list of French manufacturers of trailers, (the engines of which ought not to leave the boundary of the terminals), and a list of manufacturers of tankers. The second part of the article devoted to haulage equipment confirms that there are no problems in the terminals themselves (railway, maritime or highway), but on the other hand, problems do arise as soon as the container arrives at the firms. At this stage there is a bottleneck which is prejudicial to the development of containerisation. An evolution worth noting is: the fact that the operations of loading and unloading are being carried out more and more with equipment adapted to container work.
