Volvo Trucks, United Kingdom and Ireland, has once again chosen Krone to supply new trailers for their demonstration and support fleet.
Two Krone Dry Liners, both fully loaded to 44 tons GVW, will be used by Volvo’s Head of Media and Product Demonstration, Martin Tomlinson and his team for events, customer test drives and PR/photography assignments.
“The reason we return to Krone is because of the high build quality and finish, which match our specific demands. Our relationship with the UK team also plays a big part as they are easy to deal with and manage my expectations every time. No need to look elsewhere.”
In recent times Volvo took delivery of a tandem-axle Krone City Liner to test urban routes in London and before that, a Krone Profi Liner curtainsider which was successfully used to trial a limited-edition FH16-750 from Gothenburg to the tip of Scotland.
“It’s an easy choice”, adds Martin, “the Krone quality ethic is comparable to our own –uncompromisingly high standard of product with a premium service to match. As always, with Krone, in both respects we know where we stand.”
Manufactured in Herzlake, Germany, the Dry Liner is designed for UK / European operational flexibility, with up to 2.800mm internal loading achievable with a 1250mm fifth wheel height in the UK and Ireland. The standard 10-year guarantee against perforation corrosion and suitability for export at the end of term, also contribute to the trailer’s high residual value.
