McGregor Logistics buys 10 new reefers to meet demand

McGregor Logistics has taken delivery of 10 new Schmitz Cargobull S.KO COOL reefers to meet increasing work volumes, with each asset offering increased durability and payload.

The new trailers will run on multi-drop fresh and frozen work across the UK and internationally and are expected to cover up to 150,000kms 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.

The box bodies are constructed using Schmitz Cargobull’s patented FERROPLAST 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.

“We have been lucky enough to have experienced an increase in customer demand recently, and had a need to extend our trailer fleet,” said McGregor Logistics’ managing director, Keith Law. “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.

“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.”
