Wise Logistics has taken delivery of three S.CS Freepost trailers from Schmitz Cargobull to help speed up its loading times and reduce repair and maintenance costs.
The Northamptonshire general haulage firm has a long-standing relationship with Schmitz and decided to add the new pillarless curtainsiders to its fleet after seeing them being built while on a factory tour.
Marcin Zajac, MD at Wise Logistics, said: “The roof supports you get in a traditional curtainsider can be an issue. They tend to get damaged by fork-lifts during collections for deliveries, so it’s great to add these pillarless Freeposts to our trailer fleet.
“They are already proving to be great assets. They make loading faster and easier and we will see less damage to the trailer – they are the perfect solution for us.”
The new trailers will be working with Volvo FH 6x2 tractor units, transporting a wide range of goods from Wise Logistics’ 50,000sq ft warehouse in Corby.
They join a 20-strong trailer fleet at the business, the majority of which is made up of Schmitz Cargobull products.
“I would say 80% of our trailers are built by Schmitz,” Zajac added.
“I’ve been in transport since I was a young kid and have grown up around Schmitz Cargobull trailers. It’s a name and brand I trust and respect. We are very happy to see this pillarless design added to its portfolio and the fact they are now built here in the UK is even better as it will help ensure lead times are shorter.”
