Davies Turner holds firm in Morocco

DAVIES Turner is investing in additional high specification hanging garment trailers to serve the growing trade in garments moving between Morocco and the UK.

The latest investment comes just six months after the transport company decided to step up the company’s investment in this market, after other large trailer operators cut back services.

The first 20 trailers, Krone dry liner straight frame garment trailers equipped with 100 garment bars, have already entered this growing traffic lane and a further 10 are due for delivery later this month.

Philip Stephenson, joint managing director of Davies Turner, said: “Morocco was one of our major success stories in 2007. These trailers, while still new, have proved very successful and have definitely earned their keep with a good balance of loads both north and southbound. We are looking forward to the arrival of the next 10 trailers to complement the existing trailers we have dedicated to this trade. More will follow as part of our phased expansion plans.

“The primary reason for going with Krone, is that its trailers have steel walls, doors and roofs and offer really superior protection from break-ins or stowaways, which are both major concerns when loading takes place in Morocco. The trailers are fitted with satellite tracking and have a satellite monitored door security system.”
