About The SDC Curtainsiders
The new trailers are built to EN 12642 XL safety standards and are fitted with a tuck away tail-lift to accommodate deliveries at locations without a forklift. The 11 models of SDC curtainsiders come in a variety of configurations, including double-deck and extra-length models, a coilwell trailer with optional sliding roof and body systems, and more. Other key features include BPW Eco-Plus axles, Haldex Gen3 braking with roll stability, full LED lighting, and a tracking system for vehicle optimisation.

Through ongoing investment in our state-of-the-art fleet, our people, information technology, and materials handling equipment, Matthew Kibble Transport offers a fully structured service that is second to none, and our goal is to continue to advance and improve our customer offering.”
