The new refrigerated trailers from Schmitz Cargobull, have the TrailerConnect telematics system for a complete view of the cold chain while they run seven days a week being pulled by DAF XF tractor units. 

They a fleet of 27 Schmitz Cargobull trailers with 20 reefers, four Euroliners and three box trailers, which transport fresh and frozen produce across the UK, Europe and Asia, from DWP & Sons’ base in Stoke-on-Trent.   

“We have worked with the Schmitz Cargobull team for many years and they always deliver what we want,” says Phil Houlton, Operations Director at DWP & Sons.  

“Their telematics package gives total transparency for us and for our customers.  We can see everything from weight, temperature and distance a trailer has covered all in one neat package.”   

“The trailers we currently have on the fleet are doing a fabulous job and the new ones will be working just as hard. They are brilliant trailers to pull, which is part of the reason we keep returning to Schmitz Cargobull,” Houlton added.
