McGregor Logistics balances heavy demand with ten ‘light’ Schmitz Cargobull reefers
Long-standing Schmitz Cargobull customer McGregor Logistics, has taken delivery of ten new S.KO COOL reefers to meet increasing work volumes, with each asset offering increased durability and payload. The new trailers, manufactured in Vreden, will run on multi-drop fresh and frozen work across the UK and internationally and are expected to cover up to 150,000 kilometres 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’ Managing Director, Keith Law, says: “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(R) technology – a high-quality 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 energy efficient, hygienic, age-resistant and easy to repair. Each trailer is built upon a MODULOS galvanised and bolted chassis which reduces weight without compromising on strength, and individual components can be easily replaced, ensuring inexpensive repairs in the event of damage. When repairs are needed, McGregor Logistics relies on Schmitz Cargobull’s Parts and Services team to rapidly provide replacement components.
Law adds: “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 works across mainland UK, Ireland and Europe, with 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.
