Macano South West has labelled its new Schmitz Cargobull Euroliner, specified with a rear-mounted forklift truck, as “the Rembrandt of trailers”.

The Exeter-based general haulage firm, which transports palletised goods across the south of England and to the Czech Republic, has added the bespoke semi-trailer to its fleet to improve the loading and unloading services it offers to customers.

Macano owner Miri Papaj said: “The Modulos galvanised chassis doesn’t bend when you have two-and-a-half tonnes on the back of it and the galvanised forklift adaptation is top quality.

“This Euroliner is like the Rembrandt of the trailer market. It’s a beautifully made thing. That’s why I keep going back to Schmitz Cargobull.”

The semi-trailer is designed to meet a range of customers’ needs, with a chassis which allows increased load-bearing capacity, a sliding roof and power curtains offering versatile loading options.

Papaj said; “We now provide much more flexibility to customers at the point of loading and unloading pallets of goods, offering additional transport services with the forklift unit. It has really added value to our business operations.”

The Euroliner joins Macano South West’s growing fleet of vehicles that includes two other Schmitz Cargobull trailers, a MAN tractor unit and a Mercedes Actros L truck.

Commenting on Schmitz Cargobull, Papaj added: “The customer service is excellent. This is our third trailer from them, and the build quality is second to none. It is helping to promote our reputation as a haulier because it looks so good on the road.”

Schmitz Cargobull regional manager, Geoff Ward, said: “This specially adapted trailer demonstrates our capabilities to produce bespoke vehicles to meet the requirements of ambitious independent operators like Macano South West. We’re delighted that Miri’s business is reaping the benefits of this special Euroliner.”
