Global time critical logistics provider GBA Services has taken delivery of 22 new Krone trailers to meet the increased demands of new and existing customers across Europe.
The trailers which comprise ten curtain side sliding roof euro liners, ten dry liner box trailers and two twin evaporator fridge trailers represent an investment of nearly £500,000 from the Lancashire-based company.
The vehicles will be working predominantly from GBA sites in Europe, so have been specified to meet the height requirements common to the UK and mainland Europe.
When asked about the investment, Operations Director Peter Zak said: “This purchase obviously represents significant investment for the company, but is fully justified by the increase in new business. Our vision for the future includes further growth in our time critical, pharmaceutical and high value logistics sectors, all of which will be supported by this investment.”
2015 was highly successful year for GBA Services, with highlights including:
an increase in turnover of 37%
significant new business wins in the automotive, aviation and aerospace sectors
80% increase in high security TAPA-2-compliant loads
the opening of two further operating centres in Birmingham and Lincolnshire
