West Yorkshire-based logistics company, Brian Yeardley Continental, has taken on 10 high-security, low ride box trailers made by Schmitz Cargobull.
The new trailers are expected to join the company’s rapidly expanding exhibition and events logistics division, branded Trucking by Brian Yeardley, which operates throughout the UK and Europe.
Due to the high-value audio-visual equipment being transported, the trailers have been fitted with ultra-secure SBS locks – a bolt-through system which has no parts on the outside, so cannot be cut or removed.
Brian Yeardley Continental Managing Director, Kevin Hopper, commented on the purchase: “In our opinion these are the best box van trailers on the market. They offer us maximum security, but they are also a tonne lighter than the nearest competitor. This is a huge advantage as we are able to keep our operating costs low by maximising on payload with every journey.”
Schmitz Cargobull’s technical team has also worked closely with the live events and exhibitions specialist to include a number of custom features on the trailers – including specially designed loading ramps and ramp carriers as well as extra locking and load securing points.
The trailers also feature a bespoke lighting system for night-time loading and unloading, which includes interior multi-chamber low-energy LED lighting on a timer.
