Hannon Transport has taken on 40 Schmitz Cargobull refrigerated trailers, armed with the manufacturer’s revolutionary TrailerConnect telematics system.
With 20 mono-temp and 20 dual-temp units, the new additions bring Hannon Transport’s trailer fleet to 150 – all of which are manufactured by Schmitz Cargobull thanks to their proven performance.
Aodh Hannon, Managing Director, Hannon Transport, says: “I always buy from Schmitz Cargobull because the company delivers exactly what I want, every time – and with TrailerConnect, we now have access to the best trailer telematics system on the market. We’ll be able to track everything that happens with our freight with printed proof of the integrity of our operations – all on trailers that are highly cost-effective to purchase and operate.”
The new trailers will operate on routes between Ireland and the Netherlands, transporting flowers and chilled foodstuffs. Hannon Transport will be making use of Schmitz Cargobull’s TrailerConnect temperature and mapping telematics package, which at an unparalleled 98 per cent reliability, provides complete control and peace of mind.
Temperature data is recorded in real time to prove that all transport has been conducted in accordance with the agreed requirements – and SMS and email alerts are available for fleet managers and drivers alike in the event of a problem.
Maintenance and scheduling data is also available, meaning it is possible to track and record every aspect of the trailer’s life, leading to more efficient and reliable temperature controlled distribution.
Rounding off the innovations on Hannon Transport’s new trailers is the MF6 Multifunction Floor. Its extruded aluminium form offers a 35 per cent longer service life, with an easy-clean profile that means hygiene can be completed in just 10 minutes. It also meets the PIEK requirements for low-noise loading and unloading, which will enable Hannon Transport to deliver flowers in urban areas early in the morning.
