Finnish trailer builder, Ekeri, has delivered a side-opening trailer to UK-based gas cylinder management specialist, Synergy Recycling, to ensure safe, secure cartage of dangerous goods.
Synergy Recycling reportedly specified the high security Ekeri body with 10 side doors per side, twin rear doors and central locking so that cargo can be easily loaded and retrieved anywhere along the trailer bed.
“This enables us to save a good deal of time, which is especially useful when making more than one collection or delivery on a single route,” said Synergy Recycling Managing Director, Simon Roud.
“Although the concertina-type doors are built for reliability and high security, they are surprisingly easy to open and close. Altogether it makes life easier for the drivers while at the same time providing all-round load security,” he said.
In close working partnership with NAWDO (National Association of Waste Disposal Officers), the Environment Agency and the HSE, Synergy Recycling employs a national network of specially-trained ADR and ‘haz-chem’ operatives, along with a team of specialist technical partners to ensure the safe handling and disposal of a wide range of gasses and other volatile materials.
“Our bespoke handling services not only require highly reliable equipment, but also a high level of expert knowledge and training across many areas of science and logistics practice,” said Roud. “For example, a recent contract for a military organisation involved the collection and handling of hazardous goods from deep within Afghanistan and then overland through several north-eastern countries. This sort of work requires a superior standard of trailer which we believe only Ekeri can provide.”
