The long-established logistics provider, Maritime Transport, has origins dating as far back as 1974, just one year after the incorporation of Lawrence David Ltd. And it’s this combined history of almost 100 years that makes both Maritime and Lawrence David two of the biggest names in the UK distribution and trailer manufacturing industries. So it’s small wonder that the two should come together for an order of 124 pillarless curtainsider trailers that will last well into the future.
As well as being the country’s largest privately-owned container transport operator, Maritime have diversified into other sectors offering distribution, truck sales and other transport-related services that utilise their fleet of over 1000 vehicles.
Maritime’s order of over 100 Lawrence David trailers stipulated some specific details that the manufacturing team in Peterborough were only too happy to both meet and exceed. The fleet of 13.71m-long pillarless trailers include unique ultra marine blue-tinted fibreglass roofs, Armoursheet’plus’ tapered curtains with the exclusive Lawrence David track and valance, internal load-securing Double D hangers, rollers and straps and a pull-out rear ladder for easier access.
With a whole TUV certified load-bearing body, not just curtains, in Maritime’s eye-catching livery as well as dark blue finishes on the trailer chassis, bulkheads and rear doors, these trailers will be unmissable on Britain’s roadways.
