Fowler Welch takes 30 SDC trailers

Fowler Welch, is adding 30 bespoke SDC tri-axle curtain-side trailers to its UK trailer fleet, to be delivered at the end of September.

The FMCG logistics firm is trialling a trailer at its Heywood distribution centre, to establish which options will suit its operation.

The trailers will be built to the industry’s optional EN12642XL standard on structural strength, thus significantly increasing stability and load-bearing capabilities.

The fleet will also be equipped with Haldex’s soft docking system, whereby brakes are automatically applied when reversing into a loading bay. This can apply precise braking power to match load and vehicle speed.
