Mercedes-Benz flatbed semitrailer
Original forwarding classic
The semi-trailers with Mercedes-Benz short bonnet tractor units were not common on the West German road traffic scene of the 1960s. Although the benefits of the rapid change of semi-trailer and the high degree of flexibility were evident, many forwarding companies hesitated. The Nellen & Quack forwarding company was more forward-thinking, and deployed a short bonnet with flatbed semi-trailer very early on. Carl Hermann Nellen and August Quack had founded the company in Rheydt in 1884.
