Twenty new SDC Freespan Curtainsiders for KFL

Suffolk-based haulage operator Kersey Freight Ltd (KFL) has added 20 new SDC Freespan Curtainsiders to its 180 strong trailer fleet, in addition to 24 new trailers from the manufacturer in 2019.

Specialists in the UK road haulage sector, KFL placed the order following a number of key contract wins earlier this year, with the new trailers going into service from mid-August.

Traditionally running SDC posted curtainsiders, this is the first time KFL opted for the post-less design which requires less driver intervention when loading and unloading. A personalised trailer spec will further enhance KFL’s uptime with BPW eco-plus 9-ton axles and low maintenance drum brakes, Haldex Generation 3 braking, full LED lighting, SDC’s universal coupling box and additional toolbox storage.

Fleet Manager at KFL, Robert Steele, said: “Out of the 180 trailers that we operate, 121 of these are SDC, we have always found them reliable, well-built, and robust enough to stand up to our demanding haulage operations.”

UK Sales Manager at SDC Trailers, Matt Kerrison said: “I am delighted to see another batch of SDC trailers on the road with Kersey Freight, a well-known name in the industry and key provider of haulage services throughout the UK.

“SDC’s EN 12642-XL rated Freespan Curtainsider has been a popular choice among UK hauliers thanks to the highly functional design and robust chassis. Our engineers continue to streamline our products in line with market demands, setting the industry standard for quality and customer satisfaction.”
