Cranleigh Freight Services (CFS) has added three Krone Profi Liner curtainsiders to its fleet to meet growing demand for its UK and European general haulage operations.

CFS, which has its headquarters at Dunsfold Park in Cranleigh, Surrey, provides a range of services, including full pan-European coverage, secure transit, on-site support, reverse logistics and vehicle tracking.

This latest investment by CFS follows its purchase of two Krone Dry Liners last year, which it uses in its events division, providing time-sensitive logistics and safe transport throughout Europe.

The three new Profi Liners feature pre-galvanised components including the outer frame and corner posts, plus side and underrun protection.

Offset curtain rollers in the external beam ensure smooth running of the sliding curtain, while the external beam is 30% stronger than the previous generation, significantly reducing risk of bending.

This latest generation of the Krone Dry Liner has a sturdy chassis, thanks to diagonal frame reinforcements. They also feature keyhole plates inside as standard and offer enhanced security for sensitive and valuable goods.

CFS’s Dry Liners are based on the Krone universal modular chassis, featuring an optimised welded assembly and robust bulkhead connection.

For increased stability in the event of collision damage, the chassis is equipped with a raised front rail as standard, and protected lights are mounted on the diagonally reinforced, ramp-compatible rear. The trailers are made in Germany but sold and supported by Krone Trailer UK.

Will Porter, fleet manager at Cranleigh Freight, said: “Krone trailers have a very good name for being robust and reliable, their reputation precedes them. On top of that, Krone UK was able to offer us competitive pricing and good lead times.

“Their after-sales service has also been excellent. If we need anything our workshop manager just pings an email to Krone UK, and we get the parts within a couple of days. They haven’t missed a beat.”

He added: ”The Dry Liners are ideal for transporting goods for events and tours.

“The extra anchor points on the side raves are very useful for ensuring loads are secure.”
