SCHMITZ CARGOBULL CURTAINSIDERS ‘THE ONLY CHOICE’ FOR WEBBER TRANSPORT’S FLEET EXPANSION

Devon-based haulier Webber Transport has expanded its fleet with three new Schmitz Cargobull curtainsiders, citing the equipment’s reliability and build quality.

The new fleet additions join two sliding-roof Schmitz Cargobull curtainsiders which are used to transport machinery, fertiliser and palletised goods across the UK.

Owner of Webber Transport, Julian Webber, says: “Our experience of Schmitz Cargobull trailers has been entirely positive. They are a high-quality build and so excellent value for us.  When it came to expanding our fleet, they were really the only choice.”

He adds: “The support from the sales team has allowed us to tailor the assets perfectly to our operations, and we are confident these trailers will serve us well for many years to come.”

The new assets are expected to be in service for five years and will each travel up to 220,000 km annually.

In addition to palletised goods, family-run Webber Transport, based in Okehampton, delivers timber logs to sawmills nationwide.
