Kersey Freight has taken delivery of 20 SDC Freespan curtainsider trailers. It follows an order of 24 new trailers from the manufacturer in 2019 and brings the operator’s fleet to 180.

The company made the order after “a number of key contract wins earlier this year” and adopted post-less trailers for the latest batch, which were specified with BPW eco-plus 9-tonne axles, low-maintenance drum brakes, Haldex Generation 3 braking, full LED lighting, a universal coupling box and additional toolbox storage.     

“When I saw the Freespan model earlier this year I was impressed by what it has to offer, the practical design and user-friendly operation is favoured by our drivers and will bring significant savings to our everyday operations,” said KFL fleet manager Robert Steele.

“Out of the 180 trailers that we operate, 121 of these are SDC, we have always found them reliable, well-built, and robust enough to stand up to our demanding haulage operations.”
