Eighteen months after trialling its first Schmitz Cargobull trailer, UK-based transport company. Brian Yeardley Continental, has taken delivery of an additional three trailers.
The most recent deliveries include two S.CS MEGA curtain-siders with VARIOS Top Technology and one S.KO MEGA dry freight box body trailer.
“There are obvious benefits to dual-sourcing and in Schmitz Cargobull we’ve found a range of trailers which suit our business down to the ground,” said Kevin Hopper, Managing Director of Schmitz Cargobull. “Our drivers and warehouse staff find them very good to work with as well.
The trailers are currently used for international groupage work transporting chemicals on pallets and in IBCs from the UK to mainland Europe, with backloads of high-value goods. “We run a demanding operation and ensuring every load reaches its destination on time and in perfect condition is an absolute priority,” Hopper said.
According to Hopper, all Schmitz Cargobull trailers supplied to Brian Yeardley Continental meet DIN EN 12642 Code XL certification for load security and are fitted with Schmitz Cargobull’s own ROTOS running gear.
In addition to the extra volume afforded by the lowered chassis on the MEGA trailers, the VARIOS Top Technology enables the internal trailer height to be quickly and easily adjusted by the driver, to offer load heights between 2,750mm to 3,050mm at the front bulkhead, and 2,850mm to 3,050mm on the rear doors.
