Maru International, one of the UK’s leading independent multi modal logistics and freight forwarding specialists, have recently added a further 4 Krone trailers to their 40-strong trailer fleet.

Carrying a wide variety of cargo across virtually all industries, including steel, IBCs, pallets, and individual small packages, the new Profi Liner curtainsiders from Krone Trailers UK feature the unique Krone Multi-Lock load security system which, certified to Euro standard, VDI 2700 is key to ensuring that Maru comply with European safety regulations.

Responding to operator needs and increasingly stringent European safety regulations, Krone designed the Multi-Lock rave-securing system to provide maximum load securing options (over 3,000 using a complete system) faster loading, increased flexibility for different load types and most importantly, safe handling.

According to Richard Grimes, International Business Development Manager for Maru, safety is paramount but speed and efficiency are pre requisites when providing the level of professional service for which Maru is renowned.

“Krone Trailers offer the simplest and easiest stripping and re boarding of any of the manufacturers” Comments Richard, “and this assists us greatly when turning vehicles round for loading and unloading to meet our deadlines at the hub. The Multi Lock Side Rave securing facility forms a key part of the process.”

Maru supply international transport services to most towns and cities in Eastern and Western European countries and with the mileage involved, reliability is as important as back up service.

“Krone’s European service network is crucial to our operation” Continues Richard Grimes. “In the unlikely event we have any need, we can contact Krone. Their after sales service is incredibly helpful and critically, in what are time-sensitive markets, gives us fast and efficient response times.”

All Krone trailers are accredited with European body structure codification, EN 12462 XL. This guarantees a tough and robust standard of build which not only provides for additional security and safety but also ensures a long working trailer life.

“We have always found”, concludes Richard, “that all Krone Trailers have excellent build quality.  Our investment with Krone means that during their lifespan for Maru their tractor/trailer combinations travelling over a million miles are robust enough to remain in service for many years.”

Maru has a further two Krone Profi Liners on order.
