Suffolk and Yorkshire-based haulier Kersey Freight Limited (KFL) has placed an order with SDC Trailers for 60 new Freespan curtainsiders.

Kersey Freight has over 210 SDC trailers in its fleet including standard and sliding-roof curtainsiders, boxvans, flat and skeletal trailers.

The privately-owned haulier, which was launched 40 years ago, also provides transport of dangerous and hazardous goods including fertiliser and other specialist cargo.

The company said this latest order is a testament to the trust and partnership that exists between both companies.

The first 10 trailers are already in service, with the other 50 to be delivered over the coming weeks as part of an investment that will allow Kersey Freight to expand its operations across the UK and into Europe.

Kersey Freight said the 4.5m Freespan curtainsiders will provide it with increased capacity, improved efficiency, and enhanced safety features.

The trailers feature an aerodynamic design providing better fuel economy, BPW Drum brakes, a Wisatrans floor with steel dump plates, painted sideguard infills, flush back doors, and additional toolbox storage.
