Krone Trailers UK is helping Southern Van Lines, a theatre and music tour specialist, to gear up for a busy year as the sector continues to bounce back after COVID.
Southern provides transport and logistics for some of the biggest names in the arts as well as for festivals, conferences and corporate events. Based in South London, it runs a fleet of 15 tractor units, 40 trailers and five rigids.
The company required some more 4m trailers to assist on contracts into Europe, carrying high value soundboards and other sound equipment. It turned to Krone UK which supplied two Krone Dry Liners.
Director Charles Colley said: “We have had Krone trailers on the fleet since 2018 and really like them. They are good value and the drivers like using them. We needed some more 4m trailers and Krone was our first port of call. It was able to offer much quicker delivery than some of its competitors, which was important to us as we need these trailers for the busy summer season. They were also competitively priced which always helps.”
The Krone trailers also fit in perfectly with Southern’s truck livery. “Krone paints them in the Jamaican Blue shade which is a great fit with our own metallic blue colour scheme,” added Charles. “We also appreciate the extra security features like the additional locking bar across the rear door handles.”
