Taking a bite into Blueapple’s logistics operations
Scottish logistics provider Bluapple have picked up a brand new Schmitz Cargobull aluminium fixed-roof curtainsider for its UK operations.
The trailer will be used for a variety of general logistics operations across the UK, and it’s estimated it will cover more than three quarters of a million miles over the next five years.
Bluapple Director Pete Hannah took the decision to buy after being extremely impressed by a visit to the Schmitz Cargobull factory in Altenberge. He says: “We’re expanding, so we’ve been looking to remove some rented trailers and replace them with fully-owned assets. After travelling to the factory and seeing the quality of the work that goes into manufacturing the trailers, I was convinced that a Schmitz Cargobull would be a good buy.”
Fresh from the factory and now operating from Bluapple’s depot in Scotland, the curtainsider is carrying a variety of loads, ranging from paper and packaging, to white goods, soft drinks and building products.
