Dixon takes 30 Schmitz reefers

Dublin, Ireland: Dixon International Transport has replaced nearly 10% of its trailers with 30 new Schmitz Cargobull tri-axle reefers.

The new trailers will deliver drinks, fresh food produce and pharmaceuticals to customers in the UK and Ireland.

Glen Morgan, fleet manager, Dixon International Transport, says: “We’ve been using Schmitz Cargobull trailers for more than a decade and rarely, if ever, need to take them off the road for any kind of major repair work.”

Each reefer is a like-for-like replacement of an older Schmitz Cargobull model and joins the customer’s 300-strong trailer fleet.

They have Schmitz Cargobull’s Ferroplast side panels, dynamic ramp protection rollers and a new non-slip floor.

The trailers can be cleaned to pharmaceutical hygiene standards in less than 10 minutes allowing Dixon to carrying fresh produce in the morning and loading with pharmaceuticals in the afternoon.
