We rely on semi trailers to deliver all of our needs. Semis move 72.5 % of Americas freight. That is 10.23 billion tons of freight. There are 3.97 million semi-trucks operating in the US. Kentucky Trailers, located in Louisville Kentucky, manufactures many of the custom made trailers used to deliver the freight moved on our highways today.
The cathodic protection supplied by hot-dip galvanizing is critical for the trailers due to the amount of salt, rocks and debris that the trucks endure regularly while delivering freight and providing medical services.
Kentucky Trailer began as Kentucky Wagons in 1879. They became the largest horse-drawn wagon manufacturer in the world and now they are making their name in the transportation world with many custom made trailers. They are manufacturing mammography, medical trailers to just about any custom made cargo trailer imaginable. The hot-dip galvanizing process offers the ability to protect the parts internally and externally which provides structural safety for all motorists due to the corrosion resistance.
These trailers travel all across our world and are exposed to all road and weather conditions. The cathodic protection supplied by hot-dip galvanizing is critical for the trailers due to the amount of salt, rocks and debris that the trucks endure regularly while delivering freight and providing medical services. Hot-dip galvanizing has added benefits by providing low initial and life-cycle costs, durability, sustainability and the aesthetics desired. Hot-dip galvanizing contributes to the ability to offer much desired warranties for these trailers.
