Krone paints it black for events logistics specialist

A haulier specialising in festival and conference logistics has expanded its trailer fleet – including one with a special paint job.

FCL Event Logistics is a specialist event transport supplier, operating a fleet of 30 trucks and 22 trailers across the UK and Europe.

The company purchased three Dry Liners from Krone and had specific requirements for the paint job on one of them.

Martin Cowie, logistics manager for FCL Event Logistics, said: “We painted one of our tractor units in a very distinctive metallic black for a client.

“When the contract came to an end the truck still had relatively low mileage, so we wanted to keep it in the fleet but needed a trailer to match it. Krone came up with the goods, they colour matched the trailer to our truck.”

The Krone Dry Liners it bought are based on Krone’s universal modular chassis, featuring an optimised welded assembly and robust bulkhead connection.

For increased stability in the event of collision damage, the chassis is equipped with a raised front rail as standard, and the rear lights are mounted on the diagonally reinforced, ramp-compatible rear with protection.

FCL Event Logistics purchased two Dry Liner STGs with galvanised steel cassette side walls (galvanized) and a front wall made out of trapezium-shaped steel plates.

It also purchased one Dry Liner STP with plywood side wall body and tail lift – this is the trailer with the special paint job.
