Schmitz Cargobull trailers and telematics are top choice for DWP & Sons.

Stoke-based DWP & Sons has extended its fleet with seven Schmitz Cargobull (SCB) refrigerated trailers.

The assets join a 27-strong exclusively SCB fleet, comprising 20 reefers, four Euroliners and three box trailers, transporting fresh and frozen produce across the UK, Europe and Asia.

The new trailers feature telematics system TrailerConnect, enabling the business to monitor variables such as internal temperature, tyre condition and door security on each trailer from one dashboard.

Phil Houlton, DWP’s operations director, said: “Their telematics package gives total transparency for us and for our customers.

“We can see everything from weight, temperature and distance a trailer has covered all in one neat package.”

Currently, two of DWP & Sons’ trailers are being used to advertise Stoke-on-Trent’s cultural and heritage attractions, with liveries designed by the local council.

There are plans for Stoke City Football Club to wrap a third trailer in its colours.
