Stardes’ new trailers set for European Mika tour12 July 2010

Stardes, which provide logistics services to the music, concert and entertainment industry, has added two new Schmitz Cargobull FP25 dry freight box trailers, with enhanced lighting and security, to its fleet.

Stardes's founder and director David Steinberg explains that the trailers will be used to distribute equipment used by artists and bands on tours throughout the UK and Europe – with the first job being to transport instruments, costumes and production equipment for Mika and Kasabian's forthcoming European tours.

The new trailers were modified, with: 12 additional recessed internal LED roof light fittings, to provide for post-event nigh time loading illumination; enhanced locking bar on the back doors; and a load securing system, developed by Stardes with Spanset UK.

They have also been fitted with ramp carriers for two loading ramps as well as Wabco's SmartBoard monitoring technology.

"We bought Schmitz Cargobull products not only because of the build quality of the trailers and the fact that Schmitz Cargobull could incorporate the special design features we needed, but because of the extensive after sales service back up the company offers throughout Europe," comments Steinberg.

"The Mika summer tour is now playing shows in Russia, so the back up service that Schmitz Cargobull offers will be of added value," he adds.
