Curvin Transport, the general haulage arm of AET Transport Services, have added a further 9 Krone Profi Liner curtainsiders to their UK and European fleet.

Based in Poole, Dorset and part of the 40 year-established AET Transport Group, Curvin Transport is using the new trailers for general distribution, including palletised freight, on national and international routes.

According to AET Managing Director Andrew Trotter, the Profi Liners’ loading flexibility is an asset to their operation.

“These curtainsiders are fitted with sliding roofs which is ideal for fast and secure loading – especially when dealing with outsized loads.  Additionally, they are fitted with the standard Krone Multi Lock loading system which has around 130 lashing points along each side rave. This provides virtually unlimited strapping options and means that the cargo is firmly secured at any point along the trailer bed.

Furthermore,” adds Andrew “the curtain straps can be accessed from outside and inside the trailer, which is a plus-point for driver comfort and safety.”

Manufactured at Krone’s dry freight trailer plant in Werlte, Germany, the Profi Liners are Code XL -certified which, says Andrew Trotter, is important to satisfy VOSA security criteria and an absolute must for European work.

“These trailers are built for pan-European operations and in that regard, ideally suited to our diverse customer base. Simply put, they represent value for money, flexible loading and are more than up to the job our customers require.”

AET, established in 1977, provide a wide range of road, rail and sea logistics solutions, from machinery and heavy plant removals to complete factory relocations. The company also includes Eaton Poole, another well-established transport and storage operation whose activities dovetail with the wider group to provide national and international pallet-network services.
