Shipping News Feature

UK – Still doubtless basking in the glory of two of the company's executives last week being honoured as winners of Lifetime Achievement Awards at the 2019 Freight Transport Association (FTA) celebration, Maritime Transport continued the upgrade of its 3,000 strong trailer fleet with the first of 310 new skeletal units supplied by long-term partner, Dennison.

The new trailers will support operations from Maritime’s network of thirty one depots and consist of 200 sliding, 100 fixed whilst 10 are sliding with underslung gensets fitted. Stuart Wardlaw, Fleet Director at Maritime, commented:

”Throughout our 15-year relationship, we have been impressed with the trailers Dennison have provided, and how they have worked closely with us to deliver a specification that fully optimises our intensive operation.

”The investment in these new skeletals demonstrates our commitment to having the safest, most efficient fleet on the road, and to increasing our presence whilst providing an unparalleled service.”

A leader in the field of container haulage, road safety and compliance remains a priority for Maritime, and each trailer sideguard has been equipped with hi-vis warning signs to help lower the likelihood of injury to vulnerable road users, and James Dennison, Managing Director at Dennison Trailers said:

”We’re extremely pleased to be supplying Maritime with these additional trailers, and are proud to be associated with such a fantastic business. Our outset has always been to produce quality products, and everything we do is with our customers in mind. We look forward to seeing the results these new skeletal trailers will bring Maritime, and maintaining our relationship with them.”
