Culina Group, a food and drink logistics specialist with 75 depots across the UK, recently expanded its fleet with a purchase of 127 Schmitz Cargobull trailers for use by three of its major brands, Fowler Welch, Morgan McLernon, and Warrens Group. The order includes a mix of box body semi-trailers and S.KO COOL mono-temperature reefers. The trailers are built with Schmitz Cargobull’s Ferroplast panels which are well-insulated and highly moisture-resistant. The S.KO COOL trailers are equipped with Thermo King SLX refrigeration units that have the TrailerConnect telematics system that provides fleet managers with real-time location and temperature data.


“Our relationship with Schmitz Cargobull spans over 20 years and we can always rely on the outstanding build quality across each asset,” says Culina Group Fleet Director Mark Matkin. “We have to be sure that every piece of equipment we operate is up to the job and will be able to meet our busy schedule. Schmitz Cargobull trailers are some of the strongest and most robust we have come across, which is why we continue to specify them across our brands.”


About The S.KO COOL

Schmitz Cargobull says its S.KO COOL box body semi-trailers offer low operating costs and fast loading and unloading. The trailers feature a new air distribution system optimised with connecting ducts to the cooling unit to provide efficient, uniform temperature control. The FERROPLAST thermal technology keeps the trailer’s box body vapour diffusion tight, age resistant, and shatter proof. The liquid-tight, welded floor pan and flush-fitting attachments allows easy cleaning, while the modular system for individual trailer configuration simplifies the process of securing loads with features such as multifunctional floors and load-securing rails.
