Online Group has replaced 20 trailers on its fleet with new curtainsiders from Krone UK.
The Profi Liner trailers are used across Online Group’s operations, which include automotive logistics from its premises in Dagenham and Dover. A member of Palletforce, they also operate national pallet and parcel distribution, including ADR, in the UK and Europe.
Steven O’Leary, MD of Online Group, said: “A temporary downturn during the pandemic gave us the opportunity to take stock and we decided it was the ideal time to bring down the average age of our trailers. We have bought from Krone for over 15 years, so they were the obvious choice. They are a great piece of kit – extremely reliable and very easy to maintain.”
O’Leary added: “The beauty of the Profi Liners is that we can maintain and repair them ourselves, in our workshops at Dover. Krone UK has always been very responsive, and we have no issues in getting parts or product support.”
“Our drivers seem to really like the Krone trailers – in fact, they compete to get them whenever they come in,” said Steven. “They are reliable, the price is competitive, and they are real workhorses, which is why we keep buying them.,” he added.
The Online Group will be celebrating 40 years in business next year and now operates more than 300 commercial vehicles.
“Quality is integral to our business and these trailers help us to maintain the high levels of service our customers expect from their logistics partner,” O'Leary concluded.
