Macano South West gets new Schmitz Cargobull Euroliner
Specified with a rear-mounted forklift truck, Macano South West has added a new Schmitz Cargobull Euroliner to its fleet.
The haulage firm is based out of Exeter and transports palletised goods across the south of England and into the Czech Republic. The bespoke semi-trailer allows the company to improve its loading and unloading services.
Macano owner, Miri Papaj, said: “The MODULOS galvanised chassis doesn’t bend when you have 2.5 tonnes on the back of it and the galvanised forklift adaptation is top quality. This Euroliner is like the Rembrandt of the trailer market. It’s a beautifully made thing. That’s why I keep going back to Schmitz Cargobull.
“We now provide much more flexibility to customers at the point of loading and unloading pallets of goods, offering additional transport services with the forklift unit. It has really added value to our business operations.”
Alongside the increased load-bearing capacity of the chassis, the trailer has a sliding roof and power curtains to suit all loading options. Macano South West’s fleet is expanding and this Euroliner joins two other Schmitz Cargobull trailers, an MAN tractor unit and a Mercedes-Benz Actros.
Papaj added: “The customer service is excellent. This is our third trailer from Schmitz Cargobull, and the build quality is second to none. It is helping to promote our reputation as a haulier because it looks so good on the road.”
Schmitz Cargobull regional manager, Geoff Ward, said: “This specially adapted trailer demonstrates our capabilities to produce bespoke vehicles to meet the requirements of ambitious independent operators like Macano South West. We’re delighted that Miri’s business is reaping the benefits of this special Euroliner.”
Macano South West offers less than truckload and full truckload logistics services for national and international haulage. Its Slovakian sister company, Macano Europe, has a depot in the Czech Republic to facilitate European logistics.
