Navan, County Meath-based haulier McNally Logistics has invested in its first three Schmitz Cargobull curtainsiders that are more suited to its intense schedule of Irish Sea crossings. The new semi-trailers are able to withstand the effects of saltwater spray experienced during regular ferry crossings, maximising uptime for its fleet and reducing maintenance costs.
Schmitz Cargobull’s MODULOS galvanised chassis comes with an unrivalled 10-year warranty against any rust break-through. Should any maintenance work be required, the bolted components can quickly and easily be replaced in a matter of minutes.
Alan Reilly, Transport Manager at McNally Logistics, says: “Our trailers travel on multiple ferry crossings every week, where they’re at risk of significant damage from sea spray. Schmitz Cargobull was the only manufacturer we spoke to willing to provide a 10-year warranty against corrosion, which should lower our maintenance costs as well as increase fleet reliability.”
The new assets are also equipped with Schmitz Cargobull’s ROTOS running gear which helps to further lower maintenance costs and extend the life of all brake pads. The company can also call on the support of Schmitz Cargobull’s 1,700 authorised Service Partners across Europe. The Schmitz Cargobull trailers are expected to be in service for eight years.
Established in 2013, McNally Logistics provides cross-docking, pallet distribution, national and international haulage and warehousing services.
