Elddis modernises fleet with SDC

UK-based operator, Elddis Transport, has taken delivery of new SDC Freespan curtainsiders to bolster its general haulage operations.

The trailers, according to the OEM, provides a 3.2m side aperture for loading and feature SDC’s low friction alloy curtain rail with smooth operation, a combination which is well suited to Elddis’ requirements for transporting full and partial loads throughout the UK and Ireland.

“At Elddis, we are continually striving to enhance the efficiency of our operations so that we can offer the best possible service to our customers,” said Elddis Managing Director, Nigel Cook. 

“Reliable equipment is extremely important for our day to day deliveries and I am pleased with the quality build and high specification on our new curtainsiders from SDC which will strengthen our service in the demanding FMCG market. The trailers are built to EN 12642 XL standard and we have added various extras to enhance loading and safety during use,” he said.

The Freespan trailers were manufactured at SDC’s Mansfield facility in Nottinghamshire which recently completed a major upgrade with the addition of a new state of the art trailer assembly line. SDC acquired a second workshop next to its current factory which has doubled the OEM's bodied trailer capacity and has also added workshop bays for aftermarket repair and refurbishment services.
