Operator secures mail deliveries with Krone Dry Liners06 May 2015
Secure haulage operator Forward Trucking Services (FTS) has added 10 Krone Dry Liner box trailers to its fleet, for use on a secure-mail contract with the DX Group – with Krone delivering the trailers in an unrivalled lead time of seven weeks.
Key to the deal, says the St Albans-based operator, was the fact that Krone could meet the specification and delivery timescale when it decided to upgrade its trailer fleet.
"We needed to move quickly and no one else could get close to this lead time," says Barry Simmonds, general manager for FTS.
The Dry Liners are certified to European load safety standard DIN EN 12642 and come with a 10-year paint guarantee, high-security aluminium roller shutters, Krone's full load locking system and integrated LED internal lighting.
"This is German trailer engineering at its best," adds Simmonds.
"We reviewed the market and this product certainly looks like the best available in terms of quality and will be more than able to provide the safety and security which is paramount for this contract."
