Culina Group takes on 127 new Schmitz Cargobull trailers

Food and drink logistics specialist Culina Group has expanded its UK fleet with 127 new trailers from Schmitz Cargobull for use across three of its major brands.

The new trailers, which will be used on Culina’s Fowler Welch, Morgan McLernon and Warrens Group brands, join a 2,500-strong fleet and include a mix of box body semi-trailers and S.KO COOL mono-temperature reefers. 

“Our relationship with Schmitz Cargobull spans over 20 years and we can always rely on the outstanding build quality across each asset,” said Mark Matkin, Culina Group’s group fleet director.

“We have to be sure that every piece of equipment we operate is up to the job and will be able to meet our busy schedule. Schmitz Cargobull trailers are some of the strongest and most robust we have come across, which is why we continue to specify them across our brands.”

All of the trailers, built with Schmitz Cargobull’s Ferroplast panels, are resistant to moisture, ensuring payloads are kept safe and insulation levels are maintained. If any damage does occur to the assets, the panels can be quickly and easily repaired rather than the trailer side requiring whole body repair.

“The construction of the trailers means any downtime is minimised and when we do need maintenance, the process is simple and takes place in rapid time,” added Matkin. “Schmitz Cargobull always has our trailers back on the road as soon as possible.”

All the S.KO COOL trailers have been mounted with Thermo King SLX refrigeration units and come equipped with Schmitz Cargobull’s TrailerConnect telematics system, providing Culina Group with real-time data of the location and temperature conditions of each asset.
