One of the UK’s leading, privately-owned temperature-controlled logistics specialists has commissioned four new semi-trailers from Gray & Adams.
Chiltern Cold Storage part-exchanged four trailers as part of the deal – all had given outstandingly reliable service and still looked good after six years on the road.
The fast-growing company operates 53 refrigerated trailers, 75% of which are by Gray & Adams. The line-up includes four lifting-deck variants and five with twin command steer axles for urban operation.
The latest additions to its fleet, however, are 13.6-metre single-deck trailers, with aerodynamically efficient panel cappings, and whisper quiet, low-emission Thermo King SLXi-300 multi-temperature refrigeration units.
All are working from Chiltern Cold Storage’s headquarters in Peterborough – the high-profile operator also has a base in Livingston and another in Highbridge, Somerset, which it opened last year.
Chiltern Cold Storage’s latest trailers were built to the “swan deck” design favored by Chiltern, and specified with features such as compression bumpers, stainless steel light pan infills and rugged, corrosion-resistant chequer-plate flooring.
“Gray & Adams will build me the exact trailer I want, and when it comes to options there aren’t many boxes we don’t tick,” said Chiltern Managing Director Paul Jackson.
