C&H (Hauliers) Ltd, a Charles Gee Group Company, has announced the launch of additional loose waste Walking Floor trailer services to Europe.
Long established as carriers of forest products, C&H (Hauliers) has expanded its Walking Floor trailer operations by adding an additional 10 Le Gras 13.6m Walking Floor trailers coupled with DAF XF 105 FTG 460s. These additions serve to complement the already well established service.
Steve Mercer, Managing Director, comments “This strategic position adopted by ourselves has been created to enable us to continue to grow this specialised service. We are now in a position to continue to serve our, already established ,forest products customer base as well as being able to address the new business enquiries that we were previously unable to satisfy with our fleet profile.”
Mr Mercer continued to explain that the additional vehicles are specified for European operations with a four metre running height and maximum cubic capacity. The floors are strengthened to enable access into the trailer for MHE dock loading and deliveries plus the ability to “walk” loads in and out. This specification, overall, makes the equipment extremely versatile, with most types of cargo carried from loose paper to reels of paper ‘on end’ loaded with clamp trucks.
Tilbury based C&H (Hauliers) Ltd., operates 95 tractor units and 270 trailers from five operating centres with the South East. Last year saw 1.9 million tonnes of forest products moved by C&H (Hauliers) Ltd., with an expected volume growth of 10% for 2011 whilst developing its services to new and existing customers.
C&H (Hauliers) and the Charles Gee Group are exhibiting at Multimodal 2011 on stand 372.
