A Year On Comes Successful Recovery of the Vehicle Everyone in Northern Ireland Was Asked to Look For
Shipping News Feature

NORTHERN IRELAND – It is almost a year to the day since we published an article about a Dennison tri-axle skeletal trailer carrying an empty Maersk container being stolen from the Antrim Business Park whilst on hire to a customer of owner, trailer-hire specialist Ashcroft Trailer Hire Ltd.

We were able to include a CCTV image of the distinctive unit whose driver perpetrated the theft and today received the gratifying news that the trailer has at last been recovered with the owners graciously thanking all those in the media who have assisted in a continuing search. A statement from Ashcroft Trailer Hire reads:

“Not being able to recover stolen equipment can hit a business dearly as not only do we have the cost of replacing the stolen asset, but also increased insurance premiums and loss of revenue for both ourselves and the customer. We are delighted there has been a good ending.

“We would like to thank everybody who helped with recovering our trailer including the PSNI, Facebook & twitter friends who shared the information, Commercial Motor, Park Logistics, Handy Shipping Guide, Cranleigh Freight Services, Irish Trucker & Light Commercials magazine to name but a few.”
