Woodside updates its fleet with 60 SDC curtainsiders

SDC Trailers

Woodside Haulage has taken delivery of 60 new 13.6m curtain-sided trailers from SDC Trailers.

The curtainsiders, which join Woodside’s 500-strong trailer fleet and will work on contracts in the UK, Ireland and the continent, are EN 12642 XL specification, with side-mounted Henderson track systems, spring-loaded door retainers and seven SpanSet winches. They come with cargo strap storage, a fitted folding Hazchem plate and GRP toolbox.

MD Mark Woodside said the order was part of the firm’s “ongoing investment to support growth and maintain a modern trailer fleet”.

He added: “We have been using SDC trailers for more than 16 years and they continue to exceed our expectations. SDC has refined and enhanced its trailers over the years, making them easy to operate and maintain.”

The deal follows a successful few months for the trailer manufacturer, based in Toomebridge, Co Antrim. Last October it won a contract to supply products to the Kanoo Group in Saudi Arabia, while the following month Knights of Old added 34 trailers worth nearly £1m to its fleet – a mix of 22 4.2m tri-axle curtainsiders, four 4m boxvans and eight 4.6m stepframe curtainsiders. And earlier this year Hireco ordered 750 semi-trailers, worth £13.5m.
