Global leader in aluminium and copper Hindalco Industries Limited has launched India's' first all-aluminium freight trailer in Jaipur in Rajasthan. Made from high strength aluminium alloy, the 34 foot long aluminium trailer is 50% lighter and weighs over 2.5 tonnes less than an equivalent steel trailer. Each trailer saves over 15,000 litres of fuel and gives off 25 tons less GHGs and helps in achieving BS-VI emission targets. Moreover, each trailer can potentially carry a corresponding extra load of 2.5 tonnes per trip, thus providing additional revenue and other business benefits to the transport industry. The aluminium freight trailer can ferry a wide range of materials such as cement, alumina, fly ash, grains, flour, steel coils and cylinders. The unique properties of aluminium ensure that the vehicle is safe, strong, durable, efficient and environmental-friendly, in addition to being cost-effective. The trailer is being engineered with inputs from Automotive Research Association of India to ensure optimum results.

For Hindalco, Aluminium trailers represent a business turnover estimated at around INR 500-600 Crore with 50% adaption. The annual Indian trailer production is estimated to be around 20,000 units per annum. The trailer market in India, though cyclical, is expected to grow at a rate of 10-12 per cent annually.
