September 21 - Bangladesh-based heavy haulage company Shamolima has purchased a Goldhofer THP/SL 12 modular trailer with the patented ADDrive system.

According to Goldhofer, upon delivery of the system in October 2017, Shamolima will be the first owner of the modular trailer in Bangladesh.

Shamolima's THP/SL 12 will be equipped with an ADDrive four-axle module and power pack. Shahid I Chowdhury, ceo of Shamolima, explained: "We mainly serve customers in the power generation and energy industry and regularly transport oversized items like generators, transformers and construction machinery."

The configuration can be used to move cargoes with a total load of up to 600 tons (544.3 tonnes). With the patented ADDrive system, the rig can travel in economy mode on normal roads, and the switchable drive with the power pack can be activated for additional traction on demanding terrain.

The THP/SL offers flexible wheelbase settings and the deck comes with a hydraulic width adjustment system and spacer, enabling the trailer to handle a range of loads while complying with varying road transport regulations. It also features low running heights and facilitates fast loading and unloading of cargo.

Headquartered in Dhaka, Shamolima has strategically located offices in major ports and airports throughout the country.
