Schmitz Cargobull curtain-sider provides Sparks

19 March 2015 #CV Sector #Logistics #News #Sales #Top Stories

Somerset-based Sparks Transport is taking delivery of 53 aluminium fixed-roof curtain-siders from Schmitz Cargobull to replace ageing assets and expand its fleet.

The new trailers will operate across the UK carrying a variety of palletised goods and will comply with DIN EN 12646 Code XL load security regulations. Schmitz Cargobull trailers comprise around 60% of the company’s 155-strong fleet.

“We’ve bought from Schmitz Cargobull in the past because we like the quality of the trailers they supply,” said Managing Director Jonathan Sparks. “With the fixed-roof curtain-sider now available, we’ve reaffirmed our relationship and are pleased with the results.”

While the units for Sparks Transport are equipped with European front bulkheads with a tilt board, the 13.6m trailers are also available with wraparound curtains and a new aluminium front bulkhead with galvanised steel front and rear corner posts. This specification is favoured by many UK operators as it enables standard-spec forklifts to load through the side aperture, without requiring a side-shift capability.
