Long-standing Schmitz Cargobull customer McGregor Logistics has taken delivery of 10 new S.KO COOL reefers to meet increasing work volumes.

McGregor said the new trailers, manufactured in Vreden, Germany, will provide extra durabiltiy and payload, run on multi-drop fresh and frozen work across the UK and internationally and cover up to 150,000 km a year.

They join McGregor Logistics’ existing fleet of 40 multi-temp units and 70 fixed roof curtainsider trailers – more than 70% manufactured by Schmitz Cargobull.

McGregor Logistics’ MD Keith Law, said: “We have been lucky enough to have experienced an increase in customer demand recently, and had a need to extend our trailer fleet. We’ve been purchasing assets from Schmitz Cargobull for many years and knew we would be going back to them due to the robustness and exceptional build quality of all their trailers.

“The vehicles hit the mark each time, and we can always rely on them to do the job well. They’re also the lightest we’ve come across, which means an increase in payload on each journey. That easily makes them the best value trailers you can get.”

The box bodies are constructed using Schmitz Cargobull’s patented Ferroplast technology – an expanded, closed-cell, polyurethane foam housed between steel skins. This technology ensures a complete vapour diffusion-tight surface, meaning each S.KO COOL trailer is said to be energy efficient, hygienic, age-resistant and easy to repair.

Added Law: “We’re very pleased with the level of service and support Schmitz Cargobull offers. If we ever have any problems, the team are always on hand and everything is turned around in lightning time.”

Established in 2004, McGregor Logistics has depots in Doncaster, Cardiff and at Tilbury Docks. The team transports and stores a wide range of goods including full loads, part loads and pallet distribution.
