Brian Yeardley Continental, the leading international transport and logistics operator, has added a bespoke-designed Krone Mega Dry Liner trailer to its Exhibition and Events transport division. The trailer will ‘double-up’ to carry temperature-controlled chemicals in the winter months.
With double deck capacity of 52 imperial or 66 Euro pallets, the 100 cubic metre box is built with strength and security in mind: The 300mm insulated side panels, roof and doors are steel skinned and PVC coated on the inside, while the floor is waterproof 30mm phenolic ply with a maximum 7 tonne fork lift axle load.
Conference and exhibition equipment will be delivered throughout the spring and summer to destinations in the UK, France, Italy, Holland, Germany and Spain and, according to Yeardley, the trailer will work hard on a virtually nonstop basis.
For the temperature-controlled phase of its operation, in Italy and France, the mega trailer will deliver specialised loads at a constant temperature of 15 to 25 degrees under the control of a compact diesel-driven Thermo King Heat King system.
Kevin Hopper is Managing Director for Brian Yeardley Continental and is clear regarding the policy behind the company’s 52 mega trailer fleet:
"It’s all about maximising load space and minimising road miles. With the high quality Krone mega dry box we not only provide the optimum in load capacity but also have the flexibility to work the trailer safely and securely for two distinct operations, 12 months of the year."
Furthermore, and as a further mark of its build quality, the trailer chassis is finished with Krone’s unique KTL-Plus, powder paint process, which protects against rust and corrosion.
Established in 1975, Yeardley provides full load and groupage services, including Hazardous (ADR) goods, for both import and export throughout the UK and Mainland Europe.
