Irish company Noone Transport has taken delivery of five new S.KO Cool mono-temperature reefers built by Schmitz Cargobull.
According to Schmitz Cargobull, the decision to place the order was made due to Schmitz’ ability to deliver all five trailers within a tight four-week timeframe.
The new trailers will be used to transport a wide range of deep frozen and refrigerated loads to and from mainland Europe, including pharmaceuticals, which require absolute temperature integrity throughout the supply chain. Noone Transport also delivers food ingredients to manufacturing sites all over Europe, including long-haul work as far afield as Eastern Europe.
Built to order at the manufacturer’s reefer production facility in Vreden, Germany, all five S.KO Cool trailers run on Schmitz Cargobull’s own Rotos axles and have been mounted with Thermo King SLX refrigeration units. They also feature Schmitz Cargobull’s Ferroplast panels utilising the latest NX 17 foam technology for improved insulation and body strength. A unique joint-free in-process corner capping system ensures a watertight seal to maintain thermal efficiency.
The delivery of the new trailers brings the customer’s total trailer parc to 55, of which just under half (26) are refrigerated. They join a diverse fleet including Euroliners, fixed roof curtainsiders, flatbeds and ultra-secure box van trailers. They will operate exclusively with Noone’s fleet of MAN tractor units.
