Grimsby-based Hedges Chilled Distribution has ordered two Krone Cool Liner trailers after having positive experiences renting the same model.

The operator, which holds an O-licence for an allocation of 18 vehicles and 25 trailers, will use them for retails and groupage movements.

The Cool Liner exteriors are made out of duoplex steel and has aluminium flooring. The main structure consists of double-T, longitudinal beams and a Z-profile rear traverse section with diagonal reinforcements for extra rigidity.

Ciaron Reynolds, MD at Hedges (pictured), said he was expecting low total cost of ownerhip in the long-term: “The well-insulated ATP-rated Cool Liner with dual evaporators helps to guarantee set temperatures at all times.”

Delta-shaped rubber buffers have also been fitted across the rear frame and steel alongside roll-compression impact buffers mounted on either side, which provides docking protection to loading bays. Krone axles with drum brakes were specified for low-maintenance and added longevity.
