German transport and logistics company, Sovereign Speed, is taking delivery of a new Profi Liner curtainsider from Krone.
Formed in 1998 and based in Hamburg, Sovereign Speed is renowned as a ‘high-speed’ freight mover and operates from seven countries over 100 overnight connections throughout Europe, using a diverse range of express handling services for general and time-sensitive freight.
“We provide a reliable and high-speed transport service which is widely regarded as an ideal alternative to European air freight,” said Sovereign Speed Transport Manager, Naomi Howes. “So, for fast, flexible and secure load handling the Krone Profi Liner was a fairly straightforward choice.”
Manufactured to European code XL standard in Werlte North-West Germany and riding on Krone axles, the Profi Liner features the standard Krone Multi-Lock securing system, with two-tonne strapping points every 10cm along each side rave.
“Our trailers need to carry a wide range of cargo and the Krone Profi Liner caters for virtually all loading and securing needs,” said Howes. “With reinforced curtains, multiple lashing options, a lifting/sliding roof and tuck-away tail-lift, it really is the ultimate in flexible and secure loading.”
For coping with outsized and awkward cargo, the trailer roof can be hydraulically raised by up to 500mm and then lowered over the loaded cargo to achieve an internal clearance of 2,800mm.
Sovereign Group operates 355 vehicle units, employs over 700 people and uses approximately 35,000 square metres of handling and storage space. The company also provides air cargo handling, airport terminal logistics with mobile acceptance X-Ray checks and customs clearance.
