Hedges Distribution adds Krone Cool Liners

Grimsby, UK: Hedges Distribution, has added two Krone Cool Liners to its temperature-controlled fleet.

Ciaron Reynolds, distribution managing director, (pictured above) said the company’s experience with Krone rental trailers persuaded them to opt for Krone on replacements.

The trailers cope with tough conditions imposed by its retail and groupage work in the UK, he said.

Hedges specified Krone axles with drum brakes that have a 6-year unlimited mileage warranty, Krone’s Duoplex steel outer skins and heavy-duty aluminium floor.

Protection when docking is provided by rubber buffers fitted across the rear frame and steel, roll-compression impact buffers mounted on either side.
 
Hedges Chilled Distribution carries frozen and chilled products and operates a daily groupage service from the M62 corridor, Midlands, London and the southeast.
