Hyundai Translead announced the launch of the company’s newest product, the HT Composite XT Dry Freight Van Trailer, at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas. The trailer is the standard HT Composite dry van trailer with an extended scuff rail to help prevent forklift damage; if a forklift happens to hit the lower inside wall of the trailer, the forklift will hit the extended aluminum bottom rail, not the composite sidewall panels.

The trailer is designed with an extruded aluminum bottom rail with an interior scuff height of 16 inches. The rail also includes a centrally located external rib to facilitate increased stiffness and scrape resistance. Additionally, the bottom rail and extended scuff both have interior and exterior ribs to help provide protection to the fasteners while adding strength and rigidity. The HT Composite XT also comes standard with the company’s HT Corrosion Resistance Package for additional corrosion protection.

The trailer features a full 101 1/2-inch panel-to-panel interior width. For more information, go to
