Dawsongroup, a business-to-business asset hire firm, has taken delivery of an order for 170 trailers from Dennison Trailers.
The order is made up of 100 sliding bogie skeletal trailers, 50 12-lock platform skeletal trailers and 20 pillarless curtainsiders.
The sliding skeletals are suitable for intermodal containers at lengths of 20ft, 30ft, 40ft and 45ft. A roller arrangement allows bushes to be changed without splitting the trailer, an automatic reset simplifies raising/lowering ride height, and there is a “Push Pull” valve for air-operated locking pins.
The platform skeletals all feature LED sidelights and outline markers. The curtainsiders, also with LED sidelights, are finished with Dawsonblue curtains and are all fully ENXL certified.
Commenting on the deal, John Fletcher, MD of Dawsongroup’s truck and trailer arm said: “We have always taken product onto our fleet based on build quality, performance and whole life cost. Unless all three seem right, we don’t get involved – we owe it to our own customers, who have long trusted us to supply quality products at sensible pricing. That is key to our business.”
