Noone Transport expands trailer fleet

Co. Meath-based Noone Transport is undergoing a period of significant investment as it opens up new routes throughout Ireland, the UK and continental Europe.

A mixture of 50 Krone curtainsiders and temperature-controlled trailers will enter Noone‘s vehicle fleet over the coming months, most of which will operate from the company’s newly-built warehouse and distribution facility, 20 minutes from Dublin port.

The new trailer equipment comprises 20 Profi Liners and 30 Cool Liners. The curtainsiders come with Krone’s Multi Lock loading system, which features strapping points every 10 cms along each side rave, for multiple strapping options and secure loading.

The high-impact phenolic floor, allows for fork loading up to seven tonnes and for fast top-loading, each is fitted with an Edscha sliding roof.

The Cool Liners are a mixture of Duplex steel, single and double deckers, some with multi-temperature control. While in transit, each load benefits from KSC ProPlus Cool – the latest telematics system from Krone, which automatically monitors inside temperatures, coupling status, brake condition, door openings, fuel level, trailer location and tyre pressures.

In addition, ProPlus Cool handles complete document management via WLAN, which enables the traffic office to connect to the Krone Telematics Box via WLAN to access and retrieve all relevant data.

Noone Transport operates a fleet of 50 Mercedes Actros 18/45 tractor units along with a 100-strong trailer fleet including fridges, box vans and curtainsiders, with options to multiple destinations including the UK, Belgium, Holland, France, Spain, Italy, and Germany.
