Transit Truck Bodies recently produced its 60,000th Transit body, the milestone unit built in partnership with Skelton Truck Lines which, appropriate for the times, specializes in temperature-controlled systems and pharmaceutical transport, the Quebec-based manufacturer reports.
Despite the pandemic that has monopolized most of the discussion topics over the past year, 2020 was “rich in achievements” on many levels, the company notes.
“Although the festivities related to the production of our 60,000th truck body were more sober than usual, we had to mark this important milestone, as it is directly related to the reality in which we are all now living,” a Transit release reads. “We would like to underline the solidarity and collaboration of each member of our team. They were able to adapt to this extraordinary situation and seize the opportunity to contribute to the well-being of our community by participating in the manufacturing of truck bodies needed to transport parcels, food, medicines, vaccines, etc.”
Skelton Truck Lines, founded in 1962, is a family business with three generations of family members, and where every employee is also an integral part of it. Skelton boasts more than 150 pieces of equipment, in addition to 77,000 square feet state-of-the-art facility of qualified, validated and mapped storage that incorporates a 3,000 square foot refrigerated cross-dock.
“It is undoubtedly a pleasure to do business with a company that shares so many of our values and goals,” Transit says. “This mutual desire to bring our expertise through innovative products, nourished by our commitment to go beyond what customers expect in terms of products and services, we are happy to share it through our families and the rest of the world.”
The Transit product range features range includes dry freight (Classik and X-Treme) and refrigerated (Arctik and Frio) truck bodies.
