Tarrant International Transport, one of Ireland’s leading logistics and distribution operators has added four new Krone Profi Liners to its fleet and says that the curtainsiders break new ground in terms of loading flexibility.
From its Glanmire headquarters in County Cork, Tarrant International operates a refrigerated and dry freight service throughout continental Europe, Northern Africa and Eastern Europe with main routes to France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Greece, Austria, Switzerland & the Benelux regions.
“These are the first Krone trailers we have operated,” says Donagh Tarrant who, with his brother Fergal, runs the traffic operation. “The Profi Liners are pretty unique in that they have multiple lashing points along each side rave – about 130 per side – and this means we can securely strap virtually any load at any point along the trailer. Also, the sliding roof makes for easy crane loading of larger items such as precast concrete or automotive parts.”
Established by Liam Tarrant in 1973, Tarrant International is a family run business. With over 40 years’ experience in continental logistics, the company provides a daily export and import service to the UK and Europe for both refrigerated and ambient goods. The fleet is ADR-certified and comprises a waste division, which is licensed in 32 countries. From its Sarsfield Court premises which include warehousing, vehicle maintenance and truck wash facilities; the company operates 54 trucks and 120 trailers.
“Key to our success is our ability to provide a fast and efficient service,” continues Donagh. “Our customers rely on us to safely handle their cargo and expect every delivery to be made on time – every time and in both respects these trailers help us to deliver a premium service. The Profi Liner is built for fast and flexible loading and no question; these four are already proving to be a valuable addition to the fleet.”
The modern truck fleet meanwhile, is predominately Volvo and Scania – all of which are satellite-tracked and monitored remotely using on-board telematics.
Liam, Donagh & Fergal are CPC holders and long standing members of the Irish Road Haulage Association. Liam’s wife Sheila oversees the accounts and general administration of the office and staff.
