Transport tankers for dangerous goods

Durability in northern conditions

KAR-Lehtonen’s long experience and local knowledge have made us an expert partner in the manufacture of Nordic equipment. In our product development work, we have taken into account both the severe cold and the corrosion impact caused by street salting.

All of our equipment is designed to operate at full performance as low as -40 ° C. Our tanks are also all made of corrosive-resistant materials and the platforms of our tank trailers are hot-dip galvanized as a standard.

This allows us to guarantee the durability of our equipment and optimal performance regardless of the season and weather.

Economical and flexible solution

KAR transport tanks can be converted with simple steps for the transportation of various substances. The modular design, selected special components, and accurate documentation enable the easy exchange of the transported substance, making the equipment ideal for companies whose products change according to the seasons. The modifiable equipment thus increases the flexibility of operations, the utilization rate of the equipment, and the profitability of the investment.

Comprehensive user training – accurate documentation

We offer each of our customers in-depth implementation training for new equipment. The practical training covers all product functions and is implemented in a real operating environment, either at our premises or according to the customer’s wishes.

The training ensures that the driver knows exactly how to use the product correctly and safely. This ensures efficient use of the product without damage to equipment, the environment, or personal injury.

It is also important for us that the exact documentation of the products is always available to the customer. Therefore, we deliver all parts lists, the maintenance program, and vehicle protocols to the cloud service, which the customer has access to 24 hours a day.

Central location and flexible service

KAR-Lehtonen’s design and production operations are centralized in Avanti in Lieto, near the ports of Southwestern Finland, so it is easy for us to reach you. Our international customers can also send their equipment to us for maintenance and repair – quickly and easily. After the customer puts the vehicle on board the ship, we take care of the rest in terms of logistics, repair, and departure handling.

KAR-Lehtonen – referenssit

Meillä on ollut KAR-Lehtosen kanssa pitkäaikainen ja hyvä yhteistyö ja ollaan oltu tyytyväisiä heidän palveluun. Me ollaan tienpäällystyksessä Suomessa merkittävä tekijä ja ajetaan päällystykseen bitumia. Heillä on meidän toiminnan onnistumiseen ratkaiseva merkitys ja ovat sen täyttäneet. Lisäksi kehitystä on heillä tehty koko ajan parempaan suuntaan.

Kokemukseni on erittäin positiivinen KAR-Lehtosen toiminnasta. Kehitimme yrityksellemme uutta toimintaa ja siihen liittyen tilasin KAR-Lehtoselta alipaine/-imusäiliön ja meillä ei ole aiempaa kokemusta kyseisenlaisesta säiliöstä. Saimme yhteistyössä toteutettua juuri meille parhaan laitteen. KAR-Lehtonen oikeasti toteuttaa sen mitä asiakas haluaa ja pystyy myös asiakkaalle uusissa jutuissa antamaan neuvoa.

Vi har haft ett mycket gott samarbete med KAR-Lehtonen i över tjugo år. De har byggt ett antal olje-/ bitumen- och gassläp åt oss. De har även färdigställt alla våra tankbilar. Vi är väldigt nöjda med deras service.
