Langdon selects Schmitz cool trailers for running cost efficiency 29 January 2010

Temperature controlled transport provider Langdon Industries, has added 10 new dual compartment refrigerated trailers from Schmitz Cargobull to its 20-strong its trailer fleet.

Fleet engineer Graham Millard says that Langdons specified the trailers to help reduce running costs.

"Having assessed other models on the market we were impressed not only by the build quality, but by the weight advantages. Our new vehicles are robust and lightweight which contributes significantly to fuel savings," he says.

Langdon also specified Thermoking SLX fridge units, which are ultra fuel-efficient and 99.7% recyclable.

The trailers, which were built at Schmitz Cargobull's revamped UK factory in County Durham, have the firm's all-galvanized steel chassis, with its 10 year anti-corrosion warranty, and the refrigerated trailer box units are constructed using its Ferroplast modular steel-skinned panels.

Schmitz Cargobull's regional sales manager Patrick Farbrace makes the point that Ferroplast panels are filled with expanded polyurethane foam, rather than conventional Styrofoam, which means that the boxes do not absorb water if a panel's steel skin is pierced – helping to reduce running costs.
