Container logistics specialist KBC is taking delivery of 51 Box Liner FS10 skeletal trailers from Krone, growing its overall KBC/Krone fleet to 160.
Founded in 2008, KBC transports ambient and chilled containerised goods from ports to regional distribution centres.
It operates a fleet of more than 300 vehicles from four locations, with depots in Purfleet in Essex, Killingholme in Lincolnshire, Southampton, and London Gateway.
The FS10 has a flat chassis configuration with a sliding bogie for carrying 20ft, 30ft, 40ft and 45ft containers.

- IR35 tax reform will worsen driver shortage and favour smaller operators, claims KBC Logistics
Features include fold-out and retractable container locks as well as extendable under-run protection.
KBC director and transport and compliance manager David Ashford said: “Our business has grown quite rapidly, so we ordered these trailers to support that expansion and future-proof our fleet. The service is excellent from Krone UK, and everything arrived on time. It was a very smooth process from start to finish.
“Our workshop team really like the Krone trailers as they are robust and have high build quality."
Added Allan McKee, area sales manager for Krone UK: “We have rapidly grown our business with KBC Logistics to the point that they now have a significant number of Krone Box Liners in their fleet. Repeat business like this underlines the confidence our customers have in the reliability and quality of the Krone skeletal trailers.”
