The Krone trailers will be used for its customer Van Leeuwen, a global pipe and tube manufacturer. Both standard and high-cube Profi Liner trailers have been fitted with additional slot-in side posts as well as Krone’s sliding roof and Multi-Lock load-securing system.


The Profi Liner trailers also have strapping points positioned at 100mm intervals along both side raves and meet the European 12642-XL code.
