Container logistics specialist KBC is taking delivery of 51 Box Liner FS10 skeletal trailers from Krone Trailer UK, to support the company during a period of rapid expansion. The new container carriers, added to a further consignment currently on order, will grow the KBC Krone fleet to 160.
“Our business has grown quite rapidly, so we ordered these trailers to support that expansion and future-proof our fleet,” said David Ashford, company director and Transport and Compliance manager at KBC Logistics. “The service is excellent from Krone UK, and everything arrived on time, it was a very smooth process from start to finish.”
This delivery comes on the heels of Krone’s debut of its new construction trailer as well as the 20-year anniversary of its Multi Safe system, all of which may provide benefits to KBC in years to come.
“We have rapidly grown our business with KBC Logistics to the point that they now have a significant number of Krone Box Liners in their fleet,” said Allan McKee, area sales manager for Krone UK. “Repeat business like this underlines the confidence our customers have in the reliability and quality of the Krone skeletal trailers.”
Founded in 2008, KBC transports ambient and chilled containerized goods from ports to regional distribution centres. KBC operates a fleet of more than 300 vehicles from four locations, with depots in Purfleet in Essex, Killingholme in Lincolnshire, Southampton, and London Gateway.
The FS10 has a flat chassis configuration with a sliding bogie for carrying 20’, 30’, 40’ and 45’ containers. Krone container chassis are designed to be durable and versatile, with features including fold-out and retractable container locks, as well as extendable under-run protection. They come with a 10-year guarantee against corrosion perforation.
“Our workshop team really like the Krone trailers as they are robust and have high build quality,” added Ashford.
Krone offers a comprehensive range of trailers including container chassis, curtainsider, refrigerated semi, and dry freight box. For further details, visit www.krone-trailer.com.
