10 new SDC curtainsiders for UK transport operator

Another big order for SDC, with Matthew Kibble Transport is expanding its general haulage fleet with the addition of ten new curtainsiders. The new units will work on Pallet-Track operations, providing overnight-palletised freight, as well as specialist delivery services for multi-drop and oversized goods.

The new trailers have been fitted with a tuck away tail-lift and have BPW Eco-Plus axles, Haldex generation 3 braking with roll stability, full LED lighting, and a tracking system for vehicle optimisation.

Matthew Kibble, chairman, said: “I am very pleased to welcome our latest batch of new SDC Curtainsiders in response to increasing demand for our transport services. Through ongoing investment in our state-of-the-art fleet, our people, information technology, and materials handling equipment, Matthew Kibble Transport offers a fully structured service that is second to none, and our goal is to continue to advance and improve our customer offering.”

Today, Matthew Kibble Transport runs a modern fleet of Curtainsider, Double deck, Boxvan, Flatbed, Low loader, and Rigid trailers, fulfilling orders from a single pallet to multiple loads, 7 days a week. All freight is electronically scanned and tracked to ensure a smooth and efficient operation, a cutting-edge service that has led the haulier to become one of the leading names on the UK transport network.

Paul Bratton, SDC’s Group President, said “I am delighted that Matthew Kibble Transport has chosen SDC Trailers again for their expanding transport operations, and I wish them every success in the future as they continue to develop their network and service offering. Our Curtainsider range has been trusted by the leading operators for over 42 years and our repeat customers are testimony to the quality build and longevity of our trailers. Our engineers worked to achieve a high specification tailored to Matthew Kibble’s operations, in conjunction with SDC’s maximum trailer performance principle.”
