  1. Reduce the thickness of the board. For this point, use the steel with the high marks. High-standard steel, high strength, good toughness, fatigue resistance.

  2. Reduce the weight of the rear axle. The axle and suspension are now close to two tons, only light axles, disc brakes, 4 leaf springs, new lugs, tubeless tires, single tires, etc. are all effective methods.

  3. Change the suspension. Airbag suspension can be used, which has fewer applications.

  4.  Reduce the weight of accessories. Reduce the weight of bumpers, side protective nets, net-type spare tire racks, tool boxes, tarpaulin racks, etc.

  5. There is also a suspension rear axle. The high-strength steel semi-trailer is lighter than the ordinary carbon steel light semi-trailer. Using Swedish imported high-strength steel, the semi-trailer is optimized for design. Without changing the load capacity of the semi-trailer, the dead weight of the semi-trailer is reduced by more than 1.3 tons, which can effectively improve the efficiency of the vehicle.
