Kögel’s Cargo Coil and Cargo Coil Rail are the first variants in its platform trailer portfolio to transition to the next generation – NOVUM – and are available to order with immediate effect. These semi-trailers for coil and split strip transport now feature the optimised external frame profile and improved body characteristic of the NOVUM-generation trailers. In addition, the tare weight of the new models is up to 150 kilogrammes lower than the predecessor generation. The empty Cargo Coil trailer with its basic equipment weighs as little as 6,650 kilogrammes, and the Cargo Coil Rail, 6,900 kilogrammes. Compared to the old generation, the new 435-millimetre-high side member not only accommodates a higher payload but also provides the benefit of greater overall height with the same body height. What’s more, both models are highly customisable.

NOVUM – the new Kögel trailer generation

The NOVUM-generation Cargo Coil and Cargo Coil Rail have a sturdy, torsion-resistant welded frame with full-width cross beams for high payloads and concentrated loads. Coils and split strips with a diameter of 900–2,100 millimetres and a maximum distributed load of 30 tonnes can be transported evenly distributed over one and a half metres in the 7,200-millimetre-long standard coil trough. For load-securing, two pairs of stake pockets are fitted as standard in the coil trough, one pair at the front end of the trough and another at a distance of approximately 2,050 millimetres to hold square pipe stanchions. Customers also have the option of five or eight pairs of stake pockets in the coil trough, as well as eight pairs in the external frame, and two or four as a front wall alternative. Vehicle stability is further boosted by a new, slimmer yet stronger rear cover plate, as well as the new air and lighting console on the front wall, which transfers forces along the side member to the frame. The new external frame profile greatly increases the accessibility of the VarioFix lashing points, allowing the cargo to be lashed to the VarioFix perforated steel external frame with the tarpaulin closed and also in combination with the optionally available drop sides. When using belts with claw hooks, the drop sides need to be open to attach them. The drop sides can remain closed when attaching belts with flat hooks. The 13 pairs of lashing shackles included as standard are now available with grip hooks at the sides for easier handling and have a tensile force of 2,500 or 4,000 kilogrammes respectively. The gripper edges integrated into the frame, a gripper jaw tarpaulin protection made from aramid fabric and special axles in a rail design allow loading the Cargo Coil Rail onto rails. This design makes the trailer ideal for flexible loading on the most prevalent rail pocket wagons.


In the basic design of the Cargo Coil and Cargo Coil Rail, the front wall, including the front volume corner posts, the rear corner posts, and the rear wall door portal, is made of aluminium. The standardisation of the corner posts with and without a lifting roof provides a whole raft of benefits. It saves weight, particularly in conjunction with a lifting roof. It is also is easier to position pallets along the front wall with side loading. Furthermore, all the drop side spacing is now a standard size on these NOVUM-generation vehicles. This means that differently sized slats are a thing of the past. The slat pockets can be arranged flexibly using a perforated profile on the corner posts and in the slat storage console. And it goes without saying that both the Cargo Coil and the Cargo Coil Rail come with the DIN EN 12642 Code XL load-securing certificate. A modular system also makes it possible to use the familiar variable body from the Kögel FlexiUse with the NOVUM-generation Cargo Coil and Cargo Coil Rail. The body includes eight front settings, each adjustable by 25 mm, and four rear settings, each adjustable by 50 mm, so the body heights can be independently adjusted by 200 mm at the front and rear. This allows everyday goods transport with an internal height of 2,700–2,900 mm at the front or 2,750–2,950 mm at the rear.

The KTA Kögel trailer axle as standard

The Kögel Cargo Coil is equipped with the directionally stable and reliable KTA trailer axles as standard. The KTA’s unique "double suspension", made from a soft rubber bearing and a spring steel wishbone, not only enhances the driving characteristics of the trailer but also reduces tyre wear.

Also available for the NOVUM generation – perfect load-securing with Kögel Coilfix

The Cargo Coil and Cargo Coil Rail are also available with the Kögel Coilfix load-securing system as an option. The Coilfix system consists of a tension beam, four square pipe insertable stakes with heavy-duty hooks and receptacles for spacer tubes, two spacer tubes, plus three slings and lashing straps for diagonal tensioning. This guarantees form-fit load-securing. The flat contact of the tension beam and the stakes prevents damage to the coils and split strips.

Wide variety of individual equipment

As you would expect, the NOVUM-generation Kögel Cargo Coil and Cargo Coil Rail are available with a wide range of individual equipment, including a variety of load-securing packages, RoRo equipment, drop sides, double rail codification and much more.

Cathodic dip-paint coating: lasting protection from corrosion

The entire vehicle frame on both models is given long-lasting protection against corrosion by nano ceramic and cathodic dip-paint coating, supplemented with a coat of UV varnish.
