Scottish courier service, Southbar Transport, has added a pair of Schmitz Cargobull trailers to its fleet to cart fragile foodstuffs and beverages between Spain and the UK every week.
The new assets, which will be used as part of a 24/7 operation by the Scottish haulier, are fitted with Schmitz Cargobull’s Ferroplast panels which are thinner and tougher than standard panels, providing increased protection as well as room for bigger payloads.
Each trailer has also been fitted with a galvanised and bolted chassis for maximum durability and a low-noise floor suitable for early morning or late-night deliveries.
“We transport fragile goods over thousands of miles so it’s essential our trailers are robust enough to prevent any damage to the cargo,” said Southbar Transport Managing Director, Millar Dunlop.
“Our other Schmitz Cargobull trailers have been perfect, so when we needed to increase our fleet, they were the only choice,” he said.
The new trailers will be supported by Schmitz Cargobull’s 24-hour Service Partner Network, which comprises more than 1,200 workshops across Europe, each with technicians specially trained in repair and maintenance of the manufacturer’s equipment.
Established in 1991, Southbar Transport is a cargo and freight firm based in the village of Inchinnan near Glasgow. It now has eight Schmitz Cargobull trailers in a 25-strong fleet.
