CP Transport - One Stop Container Shop

Container specialist acquires side load trailer.

Following the company’s significant investment, CP Transport’s Megalift side load trailer hits the road this week.

Already impressed by the new acquisition, Adam Searle, managing director at CP Transport, says: “With a 35-tonne lifting capacity, the trailer can handle containers up to 45ft or two 20 TEUs at any given time.

“As the first in our fleet, the opportunities the new trailer presents to the company are substantial. It’s expanded our service of off-dock storage, ground level devans, and supporting companies who have found alternative uses for containers, such as at festivals or as temporary offices, but have no way of loading or unloading.”

With loading and unloading executed from the trailer’s driver’s side, container movements can be completed in a matter of minutes using the remote control or hard-wired operator control.

Jake Hollis, CP Transport commercial director, adds: “Specialist operator training has been undertaken, and we’re excited that the trailer is now fully operational.

“The side lift trailer asset strengthens our position as a one-stop shop for container haulage. Setting us apart from many other haulage companies, as does our recently updated international operator licence and our class 1 dangerous goods explosive substances and articles licence.”
