APM Commercials has taken delivery of 20 Schmitz Cargobull fixed-roof curtainsiders for its rental fleet.

The trailers, which will work on a contract moving paper for Handtrans, are equipped with a bulkhead designed specifically for the British and Irish markets.

They feature Schmitz’s galvanised Genios chassis with three reinforced posts on each side and anti-theft, load-securing side curtains manufactured with steel reinforced webbing and secured with buckles and claw hooks.

Immingham, Lincolnshire-based APM Commercials, which is part of the German manufacturer’s pan-European network of maintenance and repair providers, will look after the trailers at its six-bay workshop.

“As an HGV maintenance and repair specialist, and more specifically as a Schmitz Cargobull service partner for the past 14 years, we are no stranger to the product,” said APM Commercials MD Steve Gilboy. “We are still running reefers we bought from Schmitz Cargobull in 2008.”
