Synergy Recycling, the nationwide gas cylinder retrieval and management specialists, have added an Ekeri side opening trailer to its high-specification vehicle fleet which, says the company, will ease and speed-up loading while providing maximum security and safety during the carriage of ‘high consequence’ goods.
Working primarily for waste management businesses to handle gas and pressurised cylinders which have left the trading cycle and temporarily entered the waste sector, Synergy specified the high security Ekeri body with 10 side doors per side, twin rear doors and central locking in order that cargo can be easily loaded and retrieved anywhere along the trailer bed.
“This enables us to save a good deal of time,” explains Managing Director, Simon Roud “which is especially useful when making more than one collection or delivery on a single route. And although the concertina-type doors are built for reliability and high security, they are surprisingly easy to open and close. Altogether it makes life easier for the drivers while at the same time providing all-round load security.”
In close working partnership with NAWDO (National Association of Waste Disposal Officers), the Environment Agency and the HSE, Synergy Recycling employs a national network of specially-trained ADR and Haz-Chem operatives, along with a team of specialist technical partners to ensure the safe handling and disposal of a wide range of gasses and other volatile materials.
“Our bespoke handling services not only require highly reliable equipment,” adds Simon “but also a high level of expert knowledge and training across many areas of science and logistics practice. For example, a recent contract for a military organisation involved the collection and handling of hazardous goods from deep within Afghanistan and then overland through several north-eastern countries. This sort of work requires a superior standard of trailer which we believe only Ekeri can provide.”
Ekeri’s products range from truck bodies with side doors to drawbar and centre-axle trailers, along with semi-trailers, city trailers and step-frame trailers – for virtually all road transport applications, including temperature -controlled.
