Ireland-based refrigerated transport specialist, Hannon Transport, now boasts a fleet of 150 Schmitz Cargobull trailers after the delivery of 20 mono-temperature and 20 dual-temperature units.
The new trailers include the German trailer manufacturer's TrailerConnect telematics system and will operate on routes between Ireland and the Netherlands, transporting flowers and chilled foodstuffs.
Aodh Hannon, Managing Director, Hannon Transport, said, “I always buy from Schmitz Cargobull because the company delivers exactly what I want, every time – and with TrailerConnect, we now have access to the best trailer telematics system on the market.
“We’ll be able to track everything that happens with our freight with printed proof of the integrity of our operations – all on trailers that are highly cost-effective to purchase and operate.”
According to Schmitz Cargobull, all 40 of the new trailers feature the aluminium MF6 Multifunction Floor and meet the PIEK requirements for low-noise loading and unloading, which will enable Hannon Transport to deliver flowers in urban areas early in the morning.
Schmitz Cargobull’s TrailerConnect package records temperature data in real time with SMS and email alerts available for fleet managers and drivers alike in the event of a problem.
