Polaris Logistics and Distribution has taken delivery of five new Schmitz Cargobull S.CS Mega tri-axle curtainside trailers.

They replace older units from a different manufacturer and will be used five days a week for general haulage work.

The trailers are fitted with the company’s Varios Top Technology, which allows the driver to adjust the roof height in 50mm increments and includes hook and loop fasteners on the curtains so they can be adapted for different body heights.

The roofs can be raised on one or both sides for forklift loading or slid open for overhead crane loading. They can also be raised to accommodate larger loads or lowered to render the vehicle more aerodynamic.

“We weren’t completely happy with our previous supplier so when we needed to upgrade the fleet, we looked carefully at our options,” said Polaris’s MD Adam Barry. “Our work varies day to day, so the added versatility these trailers bring is fantastic.

“By adjusting the roof height to suit the load, we are seeing instant fuel savings of up to £150 a week – reducing our running costs and improving our sustainability. Plus, being height-adjustable helps to set us apart from our competitors and gives us the opportunity to work on a far wider range of jobs.”
