SDC secures £2m fleet order

SDC Truck & Trailer has received a £2 million order for new equipment from leasing and hire company BS Trailer Services, as part of the SDC’s ongoing fleet replacement programme.

The deal was struck between BS Trailers managing director, Oliver Moore and SDC’s UK sales manager, Matt Kerrison in January this year.

The order includes SDC’s EN-XL rated Freespan straight-frame Curtainsiders in various overall heights to suit BS Trailer’s bespoke specification, and double deck Curtainsiders featuring a Pallet Network specification with fuel-saving roof, steel mesh second decks and wrap-around rear curtains, as well as BS Trailer’s own additions for maximum safety and performance.

Moore commented: “We are very pleased to announce the £2 million investment with SDC as our supplier for 2020. We have seen a significant demand in the market for our trailers and the addition of new Freespan and double-deck Curtainsiders will reinforce our service offering, providing quality equipment in critical timeframes.

“We have worked with SDC trailers for over 20 years and they offer an extremely high-quality product with the added value of a bespoke specification to suit our requirements. We opted for the Freespan Curtainsider model with clear aperture and easy-roll curtain-rail technology for enhanced efficiency, safety and productivity.”

The new Curtainsiders will be delivered BS Trailers Head Office in Leighton Buzzard throughout 2020 and will make up part of its 2,000 strong trailer fleet.
