Heavy transport specialist Charles Russell International introduces Schmitz Cargobull’s MEGA curtainsiders into its fleet.
The new assets are fitted with VARIOS Technology, meaning each has an adjustable height roof which can be altered to meet any varying restrictions on the continent.
The curtainsiders also have a sliding roof that will allow loading via cranes.
Ben Russell, director at Charles Russell International said: “Working across Europe means we have to be aware of the different laws that apply in different countries and ensure we comply with them all, and these new trailers allow us to do that and more.”
The trailers, which will be in service for at least five years, are expected to collectively make up to 15 trips into Europe every week, delivering machinery to customers in Austria, Benelux, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Scandinavia and Switzerland.
The trailers are also equipped with the manufacturer’s TrailerConnect telematics system, which will provide full traceability of a trailers journey.
