A state-of-the-art Gray & Adams trailer featuring an electric rear shutter door has been added to the refrigerated transport fleet of family-owned James Hall and Co.
The Preston-based operator is a primary wholesaler to SPAR retailers throughout the north of England and distributes to more than 600 stores.
Its new 11.4m urban double-deck trailer is built on a tandem-axle ‘wheel box’ chassis, employs a Thermo King Spectrum multi-temperature refrigeration system, and is fitted with a hydraulically tilting, 1,500 kg Dhollandia column tail-lift.
Using a key fob, the driver can open and close its JR Industries’ electric shutter door simply and quickly during deliveries. Not only does this solution enhance load security, but it also contributes to increased health and safety by eliminating risks of strains or other injuries.
A Gray & Adams customer for more than 20 years, James Hall & Co operates from a purpose-built head office and distribution centre overlooking Junction 31a of the M6. It runs approximately 70 vehicles built by the UK’s leading manufacturer of temperature-controlled road transport equipment – as well as other 11.4m urban double-deck trailers, the line-up includes 13.6m single- and double-deck trailers, rigid trucks, and dry freight trailers.
