Sterac Managing Director, Gerald Rackebrandt, and Purchasing/Fleet Manager, Frank Knuhr, visited the the Krone vehicle plant in Werlte this October to take official delivery of 40 new Krone curtainsider semi-trailers for STERAC Transport & Logistik GmbH.
Detailing the current challenges facing the company, Knuhr was optimistic about the future of the UK industry.
“Even after Brexit, the UK remains one of our absolute core businesses,” he said.
“We want to continue to provide our customers with sufficient cargo space so that the value chains remain stable in these challenging times.
“For this reason, we have invested in our trailer park for the trade hub: 30 Profi Liners and ten Mega Liners are going into service – all of them are equipped with Safe Curtains to match the requirements on the British market.”
In line with Krone’s ‘communication logistics’ concept, all 40 new trailers, which carry the distinctive black Sterac lettering on a bright yellow background, are equipped with Krone Telematics. The long-established Hamburg-based company (with its headquarters in Braak) makes all data permanently available to its customers online.
On behalf of the Krone team, Sales Manager, Dach Björn Budde, and Regional Sales Manager, Frank Kosse, expressed their appreciation for the trust placed in Krone.
“We are very pleased that Sterac relies on the Krone portfolio and is not only convinced by our reliable vehicles and our light and quick-to-operate Safe Curtain, but also by our trailer-related services,” said Krone Managing Director, Ralf Faust.
“More and more customers are opting for digitalisation and services that are precisely tailored to their requirements. This is also an incentive for us to create more and more services at the pulse of the market.”
During a detailed tour of the plant, the Hanseatic guests were given an insight into the ultra-modern trailer production in the Krone Surface Centre.
The company Sterac Transport & Logistik GmbH specialises in European land transport, with 80 to 100 truck departures a day leading to all European destinations from Portugal to Estonia.
