McGregor takes on ten light Schmitz reefers

Doncaster, UK: McGregor Logistics has taken delivery of ten new S.KO Cool reefers to meet increasing work volumes.

The new trailers will run on multi-drop fresh and frozen work in the UK and internationally and are expected to cover up to 150,000 kilometres a year.
 
They join McGregor Logistics’ fleet of 40 multi-temp units and 70 fixed roof curtainsider trailers – mostly from Schmitz Cargobull.
 
Keith Law, managing director, McGregor Logistics, said: “We have been lucky enough to have experienced an increase in customer demand recently, and had a need to extend our trailer fleet. We’ve been purchasing assets from Schmitz Cargobull for many years and knew we would be going back to them due to the robustness and exceptional build quality of all their trailers. 
 
“The vehicles hit the mark each time, and we can always rely on them to do the job well. They’re also the lightest we’ve come across, which means an increase in payload on each journey. That easily makes them the best value trailers you can get.”
 
The box bodies use Schmitz Cargobull’s Ferroplast panels that give a vapour diffusion-tight surface with Modulos galvanised and bolted chassis to reduces weight.
 
“We’re very pleased with the level of service and support Schmitz Cargobull offers. If we ever have any problems, the team are always on hand and everything is turned around in lightning time,: Law said.
 
McGregor Logistics works in the UK, Ireland and Europe, with depots in Doncaster, Cardiff and Tilbury Docks transporting and full loads, part loads and pallets.
