Events logistics specialist FCL Event Logistics has expanded its trailer fleet with the addition of three Dry Liner box trailers from Krone Trailer UK.

Based in Thatcham, Berkshire, the company provides transport and warehousing services for conferences, music festivals, film production and miscellaneous events throughout the UK and Europe.

Its fleet ranges from 10-tonne trucks to Mega 45ft trailers which are used to deliver to events all over the UK and Europe. FCL Event Logistics also has 48,000 sq ft of storage in Berkshire.

With demand on the rise, the family-run firm needed two high volume Mega Dry Liners plus a versatile City Liner for delivery into venues with restricted access.

At a height of 4m, with a slim,130mm neck, the City Dry Liner box has an internal load height of 2.765 m and load length of 11 m – ideal for high cube loads, both in the UK and Europe.

The City Liner also comes with a cantilever two tonne capacity tail lift which is operated by foot and remote control. It has a 2.52 m x 2.5m aluminium platform which forms a sealed tail gate when raised, removing the need for conventional barn or shutter doors.

Secure loading is provided by multiple transverse lock rods and a 320 m sidewall strip ensures effective forklift protection. The 30mm phenolic plywood floor is tested to 5.5 tonnes and internal lighting is provided by four ceiling mounted flush-fit Krone LEDs.

The Mega Dry Liners feature similar internal load securing equipment as the City Liner and are fitted with container-type rear doors with integral lock rods and concealed handles for added security.

FCL logistics manager Martin Cowie, said: “The City Liner is an articulated single axle rear-steer and even more manoeuvrable than a rigid.

“Plus, when we took into account the much higher price of any similar sized rigid vehicle along with the City Liner’s ability to double up as a store between shows, the choice was an easy one to make.”

Turning to the high-cube Mega Dry Liners, Cowie added: ”With an internal height of over 2.9 metres, 4 metres overall, and high security specification the mega box vans are ideal for transporting and storing mixed, high value loads throughout Europe.”

The three trailers come with Krone telematics and a 10 year warranty against rust through. All steel parts are shot-blasted, CDC-primed and powder coated.

Cowies said: “As our business continues to expand FCL and our customers in turn need to rely on the most versatile and reliable trailer equipment. In this regard, Krone continues to play a key role.”
