New trailers for Knights of Old

[ February 26, 2014   //   ]

Logistics specialist Knights of Old has purchased three new double-deck trailers for its Irish service. The new SDC Trailers units will hold up to 54 pallets each and will be in operation by March 2014 and are within the new Irish 4.65 metre maximum vehicle height.

The company, which has operated its own trucks in Ireland since 2000, moves 65,000 pallets to and from Ireland each year. Knights has its own office in Dublin with a dedicated customer service team and it regularly operates 10 groupage trailers a night to Ireland, with a next day service to Belfast and Dublin and 48 hrs to anywhere else in Ireland for 90% of UK destinations.
