Kersey Freight takes delivery of 20 SDC Freespan Curtainsiders04 September 2020

Suffolk-based haulage operator Kersey Freight Ltd has added 20 new SDC Freespan Curtainsiders to its 180-strong trailer fleet, in addition to 24 new trailers from the manufacturer in 2019.

Road hauliers KFL placed the order following a number of key contract wins earlier this year, with the new trailers going into service from mid-August.

Traditionally running SDC posted curtainsiders, this is the first time KFL opted for the post-less design, which is said to require less driver intervention when loading and unloading. A personalised trailer spec includes: BPW eco-plus 9-tonne axles and low-maintenance drum brakes, Haldex Generation 3 braking, LED lighting, SDC universal coupling box and additional toolbox storage. The trailer is EN 12642-XL rated.

Fleet manager at KFL, Robert Steele, said: “When I saw the Freespan model earlier this year I was impressed by what it has to offer; the practical design and user-friendly operation is favoured by our drivers and will bring significant savings to our everyday operations.”
