European logistics provider, Sealane Freight, has invested in 18 new Schmitz Cargobull curtain-siders.
Ten of the new trailers have reportedly been fitted with fixed aluminium roofs and steel corner posts.
A further eight are fitted with Schmitz Cargobull’s Safety Roof system, which can be raised up either on one or both sides, providing easier access for mechanical handling equipment during loading.
“Our payloads don’t get damaged in transit because we specify tough trailers and we know from experience we can rely on Schmitz Cargobull equipment,” said Alistair Caldwell, Commercial Director at Sealane’s parent company Star Cargo.
Sealane Freight operates across Europe, and the support that Schmitz Cargobull provides through its 1,700-strong service partner network.
“We are certainly not expecting to have any maintenance issues however, as Schmitz Cargobull is the only trailer manufacturer that can offer a pan-European Service Partner network – we need that as we never know when, or where, we might need support,” said Caldwell.
Sealane Freight is one of seven businesses owned by Star Cargo, a group of UK-based companies which have celebrated 35 years of trading. Sealane Freight works with more than 1,000 of the UK and Europe’s manufacturers, importers and exporters across a broad range of industries, including food and drink, IT and technology and print and packaging.
