Pacton came into contact with a Japanese transport company at the IAA in 2014. This company is located on the island of Hokkaido, near Sapporo, where the 1972 Winter Olympics took place.
At the end of 2015, a delegate from Japan visited the Pacton factory in Ommen and was convinced on location that Pacton would also be able to meet the company’s highly specific needs.
The trailers, type TGD.354.LU, are extendible to a total length of 22,700 mm. They are equipped with BPW 12 disc brake axles and Tridec hydraulic steering on axle 3. The four trailers, all in a sedate purple, will be shipped to Japan next week and will begin being used on the island of Hokkaido in 2017.
