Chambers & Cook Freight has ordered 40 new curtainsider trailers from Schmitz Cargobull.
The trailer fleet will go into service with the logistics provider’s new, unaccompanied trailer services division – Chambers & Cook Eastern.
The trailers feature high-security curtains, side-boards and a TIR Cord, designed to deter thieves.
Each has been fitted with extra span set beams, to help improve load security and stability while the vehicle is in transit.
Chris Blackburn, director, Chambers & Cook, said: “This is the first time we have bought trailers this way. The package that Schmitz Cargobull drew up, means we have no variables in our trailer costs and the only additional expenses we will incur over the lifetime of the contract is for repairs to accidental trailer damage.”
The deal includes full service support.
