Buckinghamshire-based Ocean Trailers, which celebrates 20 years in business in 2010, has taken delivery of four new refrigerated trailers from Schmitz Cargobull. The new additions bring Ocean’s trailer fleet to over 30 vehicles.
The reefers will be used to deliver short-shelf life dairy produce from Holland to distribution centres and retail outlets throughout the UK.
Liveried in Ocean Trailers’ corporate colours, the vehicles are fitted with Carrier fridge units and Masternaut Three X’s temperature monitoring and trailer tracking technology.
The easy to clean Schmitz Cargobull reefers are particularly suited for the transport of foodstuffs. The box unit is made from Schmitz Cargobull’s patented Ferroplast panels which are bonded together to offer the highest standards of hygiene and to reduce maintenance over the trailer’s working life.
Ocean Trailers has been buying Schmitz Cargobull trailers for over 10 years and the majority of the company’s trailer fleet are Schmitz Cargobull products.
"We have an excellent relationship with Schmitz Cargobull," says Bill McLuskey, founder and managing director of Ocean Trailers. "We are always impressed with the trailers’ build quality product and the back up support service that the company provides is first class," he added.
Ocean’s new trailers were built in the UK at Schmitz Cargobull’s manufacturing plant at Harelaw, County Durham, and were purchased outright.
