At Fleetco we customize shipping containers, trailers, trucks and mobile platforms of all types. We build response trailers and specialized work stations for the military, as well as mobile kitchens and food trucks. Each project is tailored to meet the client’s needs and deliver a high-quality work space. What can Fleetco build for you?
In 2018 Fleetco built a pair of trailers for the US Coast Guard. These Special Missions Training Support Trailers began with 28-foot enclosed trailers from Rock Solid. We added crew lockers, storage cabinets, a large desk area with lighting and climate control. Fleetco also designed and installed a power system combining 120v and 12v capacities. This included a gas generator, shore power, inverter and roof-mounted solar battery charger.
This build is not one of ours, but we are impressed with the design. Del Popolo is a mobile pizzeria based in San Francisco. Their unique food truck was built by McLellan Industries using a 20-foot shipping container and a Freightliner M2106 truck. The container is modified with a glass front and a wood fired pizza oven is installed at one end. The floor of the container is cut and lowered in one section. It creates a unique step-down ordering window, making it easier to talk with customers.
In 2013 Fleetco helped a defense contractor improve the corrosion resistance of some specialized shipping containers. The containers are modified to be maintenance centers for the U.S. Navy’s MK 18 Unmanned Underwater Vehicle program. Their life aboard ships keeps them in harsh marine environments. After a short time the containers showed a rapid recurrence of rust and corrosion. Fleetco partnered with PPG to develop a new coating process. We used careful surface preparation and a multi-stage application of mastic primer and top coat products to solve the problem. The results meet all MIL-spec requirements and now provides a service life of 5-plus years. The project is on-going.
