World Courier uses Trailerloda for healthcare contract

Garston, Liverpool, UK: World Courier, which handles temperature-controlled distribution for pharmaceutical and healthcare companies, has installed its second Trailerloda portable rollerbed system in one of its vehicles.

Trailerloda, from Joloda International, suits refrigerated vehicles as there is no need to cut into the expensive insulated floor: it is installed in a day with the system laid on top of the existing floor. This means that trailers on hire for logistic contracts can have the system easily removed at the end of the lease term and re-used for another contract.

The system also works well with perishables as it can be washed and cleaned more easily than the conventional rollertrack systems.

Able Logistics in Dubai has purchased its first unit with a view to fitting out the other 7 vehicles in their fleet. They chose this system because of the quicker installation time and that the floor can be easily removed and re-installed into another trailer, as they operate both standard and refrigerated trailers.

The new Trailerloda system launched in spring 2010, is also in use in Europe by HCS a Danish leasing company which has 10 trailers operating.  They also use fixed aircargo trailers but the Trailerloda option gives them flexibility to cope with seasonal peaks in aircargo.
