Ekeri Trailers return to CV Show as UK sales reach post-Brexit high
Mar 14, 2017
Ekeri Trailers, the Finnish manufacturer of side-opening trailers and rigid vehicles, is once again exhibiting at this year's Commercial Vehicle Show, NEC Birmingham, and announces record sales of its Ekeri trailer.
Displayed on stand 3B70 Hall 3, will be a new Ekeri ADR EX III semitrailer recently purchased by specialist carrier, LSS (Logistical Support Services) of Bristol. Finished in metallic silver, the steel-skinned body comprises fully-opening doors on each side and traditional twin-lock double doors at the rear.
Certified to ADR EX III Standards - which complies with both military and international standards concerning the carriage of High-Consequence Dangerous Goods - the trailer has a 33 Europallet capacity and is fitted with remote central locking and Ekeri's own clever fastening system.
For added security monitoring and in the event of tampering, Ekeri's EkeGuard system sends an automatic text alert via GPS to the LSS traffic office from anywhere in the World.
"We ordered our first Ekeri trailer over 7 years ago," says LSS Managing Director Phil Stone. "The multi-access side-opening and robust construction combine to give us fast loading of over-sized cargo and guaranteed load-security – prerequisites for the high-value goods we transport throughout Europe."
Commenting on Ekeri's continuing success, Sales Director Bob Wise says:
"Post Brexit, things have never been better for us in the UK. Ultimately though, we put the increasing demand for Ekeri trailers down to the loading versatility which operators are experiencing from the unique side-opening design. From a cross section of industry – removals to market produce and general haulage to perishable goods - Ekeri semitrailers, drawbars, rigids and temperature-controlled trailers are making their mark in the UK."
"The quality of these trailers speaks for itself." Adds Phil Stone. "With this purchase, we operate the largest commercial fleet of EX III Ekeri trailers and for good reasons: They are hard wearing, virtually maintenance-free and without doubt, surpass any other build standard we have seen."
