Manufacturer and supplier of pizza cheese and frozen chicken products, CK Foods, has taken delivery of a Schmitz Cargobull semi-trailer.
The new S.KO Cool Smart box reefer, coupled to Volvo FH tractor units, will transport chilled and frozen food from the company’s factories in Bradford and Hull to retailers and wholesalers across the UK.
The semi-trailer comes equipped with Schmitz Cargobull’s TrailerConnect telematics system, which provides a comprehensive overview of the trailer and its load. Mounted with a Carrier Transicold refrigeration unit, it also features a new air distribution system that enables efficient, uniform temperature control inside the body.
It has been constructed with Schmitz Cargobull’s shatter-proof and patented Ferroplast technology, the semi-trailer’s panels do not absorb moisture, resulting in an energy-efficient, hygienic and age-resistant asset.
The semi-trailer is built on a galvanised and bolted Modulos chassis, which Schmitz Cargobull says reduces weight without compromising on strength.
The S.KO Cool Smart joins CK Foods’s fleet of eight 26-tonne rigid trucks and three trailers. it has been supplied on a full-service contract from the manufacturer and is expected to operate for between five and seven days a week for 10 years.
Huzaifah Bhamji, Buyer at CK Foods, said: “Our business is growing and we needed a trailer that would be up to the job and able to meet our busy schedule.
“The trailer’s high payload is an added bonus as it has reduced the number of trips my drivers have to take, which in turn reduces our costs.”
