Stafford based haulier and pallet network, Stan Robinson, has taken delivery of 10 new SDC Curtainsiders as part of the company’s fleet renewal program, strengthening its express and overnight services throughout the UK.
The new EN 12642-XL certified curtainsiders feature BPW Eco-Plus axles and Knorr Bremse EBS braking, SDC’s fuel-saving aero-dynamic roof profile, ISO regulation electrics, easy-access coupling box, and full rear enclosure with galvanised steel buffers. Four tri-axle double-deck trailers designed specifically for their hub operations, feature a fixed second deck with centre posts, optimising efficiency on high volume routes.
“We have used various trailer manufacturers over the years and have always found SDC offers quality, value for money, and overall a good fit for our requirements, they could also provide a favourable lead time in the current climate,” said Stan Robinson Managing Director, Mark Robinson.
“We are already benefiting from the new trailers, and I am positive that our investment will strengthen Stan Robinson’s Pallet Network operations for many years to come.”
Established in 1970 with one vehicle, a ‘four-wheeler commer’, Stan Robinson remains a family-owned business today, having built a robust pallet network with depots in Stafford, Glasgow, Darlington and Devon. The haulier has a long-standing relationship with SDC Trailers and operates a total fleet of 198 vehicles and 191 curtainsider trailers.
“I have dealt with Mark many times over the years, and I am thrilled to continue our partnership, Stan Robinson is one of the best operators in the industry and their quality fleet reflects this,” said SDC Sales Manager, Paul Evans.
“The new tri-axle curtainsider trailers have been designed and engineered with meticulous detail, and to an extremely high-quality specification with the latest operational and safety features.”
