Retractable Skel

Retractable Skel


The retractable skel concept was designed by Krueger Transport Equipment in the mid 90s, and today it has become an industry standard Australia wide.

John Krueger witnessed first-hand the difficulty and safety issues industry faced as demand increased by freight forwarders to load and unload shipping containers flush with loading docks. Krueger embarked on designing a trailer that carried maximum payload when suspension was extended for on-road use that could slide suspension under the trailer chassis to achieve flush loading/unloading of containers.
