Home Transport & Logistics Commercial & Fleet Refrigerated trailers made even lighter

SERCO is breaking new ground in vehicle weight reduction with its expanded line of refrigerated trailers introducing cutting-edge innovations, empowering customers to tailor their transport solutions, and raising efficiency and customisation standards.

“Our injected panel technology, which we have offered for several years, provides customers with enhanced durability and thermal performance,” said Serco CEO Clinton Holcroft. “Our refrigerated bodies are now available with heavy-duty GRP composite skins or high-strength coated steel facings, offering a wide range of options to meet diverse transport needs.”

“The tare weight of the new trailer has been reduced to below 7900 kg – excluding the customer’s choice of fridge.  This is achieved by incorporating new heavy-duty GRP composite skins and our state-of-the-art technology injected foam insulation, giving an impressive payload and a superior durable solution,” said Holcroft.

He expressed confidence in the new advancements: “By achieving an unmatched lightweight and durable trailer, we are giving our customers the tools they need to maximise their operational efficiency and reduce costs. This innovation reaffirms our commitment to delivering state-of-the-art solutions that meet the evolving demands of the transport industry.”

“Serco’s dedication to continuous improvement and customer satisfaction,” said Holcroft, positions the company as a leader in the truck and trailer manufacturing industry in southern Africa. “With these innovative solutions, Serco is set to drive the future of refrigerated transport, helping businesses enhance their logistics efficiency and sustainability.”
