Gray & Adams show first for CV Show

Birmingham, UK: Visitors to the Cool Pavilion at the Commercial Vehicle Show 2013 on 9 to 11 April at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham will see Gray & Adams’ latest innovation: a 44-pallet, lifting-deck trailer built for Reed Boardall.

Gray & Adams pioneered refrigerated double-deck trailers building the first one some 24 years ago. The latest 44-pallet trailer has 10% more carrying capacity compared to a standard 13.6m double-decker.

From Gray & Adams at the CV Show: a 44-pallet lifting deck trailer for Reed Boardall

Reed Boardall runs the country’s largest primary haulage double-deck fleet and was the first customer for the new 44-pallet version.

Tom Cassells, managing director, Reed Boardall Transport, says: “The extra 10% carrying capacity can be very useful, while Gray & Adams is a British company with very high manufacturing standards. The strength and build quality of its products translates into exceptional reliability and durability.

“We are delighted to have worked with Gray & Adams in the development of these vehicles over the years, and to have proven their worth in round-the-clock service.”

Also in Gray and Adams stabnd is an 18-tonne Mercedes-Benz Axor rigid with radically-styled Dolphin body for Chiltern Cold Storage. Paul Jackson, managing director, Chiltern Cold Storage, echoes Cassells’ views. “We are proud of our green credentials and committed to achieving the best possible environmental profile, so when Gray & Adams announced that it was launching the new Dolphin we had no hesitation in ordering three.”

• A full round up of CV Show exhibitors for the temperature-controlled sector wil be published on this site next week.
