Krone launches new container generation

German manufacturer, Krone, has announced it will launch a new generation of dry containers in 2024, named KRONE Dry Box, with ten enhancements.

To increase protection against damage, the front wall is now slightly recessed at the top, so that there is sufficient space even when cornering, reported Krone, adding that the collision guard has been extended to 1,300 millimetres (MM) at the bottom.

The new embossing in the front and side rails provides even more stability in the body, which also offers better protection for stickers and contour markings. The rear and front corner stanchions have also become even more stable and are now extended down to the floor.

Moreover, the corner fittings have also been modified and they now offer an integrated support leg rest.

According to Krone, drivers will appreciate the more easily accessible support leg release, which can be operated from the outside and is fitted with a hand-friendly rubber coating. The ladder safety catch equipped with a spring plate is also easier to operate.

There have also been changes to the substructure, the tunnel has been increased from 90 to 100 mm.

Krone has also upgraded the interior of the steel smooth-wall swap body. The new scuff plate has new embossing on both sides, into which an optional lashing option can be welded.

Earlier this month, Konecranes purchased the operations of German crane and service supplier Kocks Kranbau, gaining access to new European and global clients.
