Haulier Aardvark International is using Ekeri side-loading refrigerated trailers for handling a variety of ambient, chilled and frozen products around Europe. The trailers provide the versatility required in loading awkward product loads and adaptability when returning with chilled and frozen products.

Aardvark International started off as an owner-driver operation 16 years ago, specialising in the Iberian peninsular, with Gibraltar the main outward destination. As the company has grown it has started renting out the trailers to second parties.

Trevor Prior of Phoenix Driver Hire, who uses the trailer for transporting Gillette products, fresh produce for Tesco Finest and has a regular run of fresh goods every Sunday to the Runges market in Paris, has been leasing the Ekeri trailer from Aardvark for the last two months. Phoenix is now in the process of buying its own side Ekeri trailer.

“This trailer is perfect for dry-freight, chilled and frozen goods”, says Prior. “As a box trailer we can transport high value Gillette products and the added beauty is that as a reefer we have entire accessibility to all fresh goods for our Sunday markets.”

Ekeri trailers, with double deck option, patented load restraint, sliding roof, removable side posts and fast, one-man operation, allow operators a flexible solution to their transport requirements.
