DMC chooses Schmitz Cargobull for fleet expansion

Contract hire and rental firm DMC Trailers has added 20 new Schmitz Cargobull trailers to its fleet.

DMC, which is owned by Ballyvesey, chose the new units, which are fitted with Carrier Transicold fridges, to meet customer demand for robust, high quality trailers for their operations.

The new trailers, which have been specified with Dynamic Ramp Protection, join DMC Trailers’ 1,000-strong multi-brand trailer contract hire and rental fleet based in Scunthorpe.

DMC Trailers sales and account manager, Zak Burton, said: “Investing in Schmitz Cargobull trailers makes good business sense.

“We offer our customers the best in quality and service, and the fact they will need less maintenance means less downtime and costs for all involved.

“For us, we know the total cost of ownership will be low, so they represent great value for money which we can pass on to our customers.”
