The trailers will be used by the operator to transport steel products for global pipe and tubes provider Van Leeuwen.
The Profi Liners are a mix of standard and high-cube specifications. With additional slot-in side posts, sliding roof and Multi-Lock load-securing system and strapping points at 100mm intervals along both side raves, the trailers are designed for fast, secure loading of heavy and outsized cargo.
Richard Dyer, transport manager for LV, says: “TIP always provides a good all-round service and works closely with the manufacturer to match the right trailer equipment to our specific requirements.
“In this case, the Krone Profi Liners tick every box: fast, secure and flexible loading with a greater side aperture than other options. Overall, in terms of round-the-clock service and high-quality trailers, we are in secure hands.”
For additional strength and security, the rear doors are steel ‘container type’ with bolted rear frame, integrated door locks and concealed door hinges. The steel front wall comes with bolted corner posts and is reinforced on the inside with durable phenolic-coated plywood.
The trailers have a 10-year, anti-corrosion paint warranty and are certified to European standard Code XL – “factors which make it possible for us to offer a long-term lease and then take the equipment back with confidence into our rental fleet at the end of the contract,” according to TIP’s David George.
