Serco recently completed the delivery of 15 dry freight truck bodies fitted to MAN chassis for Unitrans Freight. These vehicles are being used to transport goods for Pick 'n Pay's Longmeadow distribution centre in Johannesburg.
Unitrans Operations manager for the Pick n Pay contract, Frikkie Dreyer, said he was very pleased with the specification that Serco had proposed.
"The 15 new vehicles look great and are standing up very well," said Dreyer, who was impressed with Serco's delivery and quality of workmanship. He was also impressed with the Serco Plant when he visited. All the vehicles were delivered on time and within a very tight period.
The bodies are 8.85m long and have 2-ton Slider tail lifts fitted as well as a Wisa wire birch ply floor which is hard wearing and lightweight. The bodies were also fitted with Serco’s new profiled galvanized steel sidewall scuff plates, which are standing up exceptionally well.
The Pick 'n Pay dry goods distribution is a significant contract for Unitrans and Serco's MD Clinton Holcroft, said he was proud Serco had been selected as a preferred supplier.
