The S.CS Freepost is said to offer safe side loading by incorporating a bolted galvanised steel cant rail and fixed aluminium roof sheet, as well as a reinforced chassis structure.
Marcin Zajac, managing director at Wise Logistics, says: “The roof supports you get in a traditional curtainsider can be an issue. They tend to get damaged by fork-lifts during collections for deliveries, so it’s great to add these pillarless Freeposts to our trailer fleet.
“They are already proving to be great assets. They make loading faster and easier and we will see less damage to the trailer – they are the perfect solution for us.”
In addition, the design of the S.CS Freepost is focused on handling, the safety of the goods and the safety of the driver and those loading the vehicle. With no sliding posts, the trailers offer the driver free, lateral loading and unloading with a side aperture height of up to 3,200mm.
To facilitate unloading, the curtain can be tensioned from the front and the rear. Driver safety is improved further by the Schmitz Cargobull Susi-Rail, with electrical and pneumatic connections that can be moved to the edge of the trailer to make coupling easier.
Furthermore, should the cant rail get damaged either by fork-lift masts or a bridge strike, it is possible to replace one of the five individual sections rather than having to replace the whole rail.
The S.CS Freepost – which is available in different heights from 4,200mm to 4,800mm – is also equipped with the Modulos chassis with a 10-year guarantee against rust-through.
The trailers are factory fitted with the TrailerConnect telematics system from Schmitz Cargobull.
The new trailers will be working with Volvo FH 6x2 tractor units, transporting a range of goods from Wise Logistics’ 50,000 sq ft warehouse facility in Corby.
