Axis Fleet Management has worked with SDC Trailers over the last 5 years, providing customer solutions to match their logistics requirements. Managing Director David Potter of Axis Fleet Management said “We have purchased from various manufacturers over the years and we are always pleased with the products and service that SDC deliver. Their skeletal trailers are second to none, providing a reliable transport solution and excellent return on investment for our customers.

By utilising our software we can make specific recommendations that consider the whole life cost of operating the asset.

We work with a number of funders which allows us to maximise credit lines and achieve the most effective market rates.”
