BJS Haulage opts for 80 new SDC trailers

BJS Haulage has confirmed an order for 80 new SDC Freespan Curtainsiders, the first 40 of which have already gone into service.

The lightweight Freespan Curtainsiders offer an enhanced payload for BJS’s multipurpose transport of pallets, furniture, food and beverages, retail, industrial, manufacturing and construction materials.

A detailed specification for the equipment was determined by BJS with a host of durable features that will efficiently meet the needs of its customers; BPW Eco-Plus axles, Haldex generation 3 braking, LED lighting, flush steel doors, an easy-access coupling box as well as strap and toolbox storage.

Designed with a clear side aperture for ease of loading, the Freespan trailers are built for strength and high load retention, and the EN 12642-XL standard build reinforces this.

All 80 trailers incorporate SDC’s easy-roll curtain rail technology. Another key quality feature is the extremely robust bolt-on-body design which relieves stress on critical parts of the trailer and allows for inexpensive repairs in the event of damage.

David McWilliams, sales director at BJS Haulage & Construct IT, said: “Our new SDC trailers are complimented with a matching number of new Renault trucks – fully equipped with all the latest tech – which, with our fully trained driver teams, will allow us to take a distinct advantage in an industry that’s crying out for a more consistent, professional and courteous approach right now.”
