Krone attended the Annual Fleet Transport Awards held in Saggart, Co. Dublin on Thursday, October 10, with no less than five of its latest trailers on display in the outdoor exhibition arena.
Designed for the Ireland, UK and European markets the line-up comprised a double-deck Cool Liner; a steel-sided Dry Liner; an insulated Dry Liner; a command-steer City Liner and a dual -temp’ Cool Liner.
Joining the Noon Transport Fleet, the double-deck Cool Liner was specified with full, Krone telematics including auto-tyre pressure and temperature monitoring.
Also, from Krone’s temperature-controlled trailer range, the dual-temp’ Duoplex Steel Cool Liner, recently ordered by DG McArdle International, features the light-weight Krone ISOWALL and will be put to work on McArdle’s pharmaceutical operation. Commenting on the latest Krone delivery, David McArdle said:
“We have been using Krone Cool Liners for many years and have always found them to be of the highest quality. Our reputation for nearly 25 years, is built on reliable service and given the high value of the goods we handle, it is imperative we use only the best trailers to provide maximum load protection. It’s what our customers expect.”
Another well-known operator Caffrey International, took delivery of the Steel Dry Liner on display. Specified for its high security and multiple-option ‘keyhole’ internal loading system, the Dry Liner joins Caffrey’s extensive European logistics fleet.
Meanwhile two further variations of the popular Krone Dry Liner have recently been added to the Volvo demonstration fleet: A tandem-axle command-steer City Liner, recently used to test urban routes in London and an insulated Dry Liner which, loaded to 44 tons GVW is used for Volvo test drives and PR/photography assignments. Like all Krone Dry Liners, both are ideal for Ireland, UK and European work.
Volvo’s Head of Media and Product Demonstration, Martin Tomlinson comments: “The reason we return to Krone is because of the high build quality and finish, which match our specific demands. The Krone quality ethic is comparable to our own – an uncompromisingly high standard of product with a premium service to match. As always, with Krone, in both respects we know where we stand.”
Krone UK’s Managing Director Fran Pickering, adds: “The Fleet Transport Awards and exhibition is always a well-attended event and a great opportunity for Krone to share the company of our friends old and new, from Ireland’s foremost transport and logistics operators.”
