LED Trucklights installs new innovative lighting on Systematic trailers. LED Trucklights, innovative suppliers of continuous lighting for trucks and trailers, has signed a major deal with Systematic Logistics, the Colchester-based national and international transport company. As a member of Palletways, the UK's leading pallet network, Systematic Logistics is the first to install the new lights to enhance its fleet of vehicles and LED Trucklights is already receiving interest from other Palletways members.
The five Systematic trailers have been fully fitted and customised with green LED ropelights, designed to etch the entire outline of the new eco twin-deck trailers. The Palletways member decided on green lighting to compliment the distinctive corporate green image of the Systematic brand. For road safety reasons and to help identify the shape and size of the vehicle, the rear of the trailers have each been fitted with red lighting.
The distinctive trailers are used for night trunking of palletised freight and can be spotted on major UK routes. Traveling to and from the Palletways hub at Lichfield, Systematic uses the M1 motorway and the M25 en route to its Greenford depot in Middlesex.
Systematic Logistics Operations Manager John Cook quotes: “We are very impressed with the lighting, which enhances our livery and unique branding. The colour boosts our corporate identity, and greatly enhances our night time presence on the road. With winter approaching we are pleased that they also contribute to visibility in poor weather conditions and help road safety. They are an excellent feature for our fleet of vehicles, and I highly recommend this innovative light system.”
Joint Director of LED Trucklights, Alex Pattie says: “The green lighting we installed for Systematic has already created a lot of interest both for us and for Systematic. When drivers see the lights for themselves, fitted and customised for trucks and trailers out on the road, they are impressed by how effective they look. Not only are they great for road safety but also for brand awareness, which is why we supply such a wide range of colours.”
The lights come as ropelights in lengths of up to 100 meters, with around 72 LEDs per meter. Exterior square lights come with custom tracking for secure fitment and there is a round ropelight version for interior use. They have low voltage drawdown and low current usage and they are designed to last for 100,000 hours, equivalent to around 15 years of usage. They are available in a range of colours, including amber, blue, green, pink and white and can be used to compliment individual liveries giving enhanced brand awareness.
