Kent-based Staplehurst Transits, a leading distributor of fresh fruit and vegetables, has added to its extensive fleet of refrigerated trailers and other temperature controlled vehicles with the acquisition of a new Schmitz Cargobull reefer.
The trailerís livery has been designed to complement a distinctively-finished Scania tractor unit that forms part of Staplehurstís vehicle fleet.
The refrigerated box unit of the trailer is white with Staplehurstís name emblazoned in 3ft high lettering across its length. The trailerís chassis is finished in red and Alloy wheels complete a stylish look.
The Scania tractor and Schmitz Cargobull trailer make an eye-catching combination that is certain to be noticed when delivering fresh produce on routes throughout the UK seven nights-a-week.
ďWe have entered the Scania tractor into a number of truck shows across South East England and picked up several awards for the stylish presentation of the unit and the quality of its finish,Ē explains Staplehurstís founder and Managing Director, Colin Goldup. ďWe felt that it would be a good idea to have a trailer that matched the cabís high level of finish,Ē he added.
But the Schmitz Cargobull trailer doesnít just score points for itís good looks. The refrigerated trailer box unit is constructed using Schmitz Cargobullís well established and proven Ferroplast modular steel-skinned panels to keep loads at the desired temperature. Ferroplast panels are filled with high quality expanded polyurethane foam and, importantly, their closed cell structure means that even if the steel skin gets pierced, water will not be absorbed.
Meanwhile, the trailerís lack of welded joints and the fact that all parts of the chassis are made from galvanised steel, means that the unit comes with a 10 year anti-corrosion warranty.
The trailer, which was built in the UK at Schmitz Cargobullís production plant in County Durham, was bought outright by Staplehurst as part of the companyís strategy to reduce the size of its rental fleet.
