Ambient, chilled and FMCG supply-chain specialist, Fowler Welch, has taken 68 new Montracon refrigerated trailers into its 620-strong ‘reefer’ fleet. The move follows outstanding in-service experience with Montracon after Fowler Welch established the trailer manufacturer in 2005.
The maximum length, 13.65 metre refrigerated, trailers feature sliding bulk-heads, twin evaporators and a number of additional features to improve safety and reduce any impact on the environment.
With Fowler Welch seeing increased volumes in the first few months of 2012, the new trailer fleet is already in service on distribution contracts from supermarkets, food manufacturers, growers and importers across the UK and northern Europe.
"We take great care in selecting our trailer fleet," said Fowler Welch’s Head of Fleet, Paul Allera, "there are many operational parameters to consider, and particularly with regard to refrigerated units.
"That’s where Montracon emerged as our preferred reefer supplier. They were prepared to sit down with us, look at our requirements and produce a tailored solution; an exacting specification for our needs."
