Transport Engineer  /  June 8, 2016

European transport business Girteka Logistics has ordered 410 reefer semi-trailers and 130 curtainsider semi-trailers from Schmitz Cargobull, to meet increased demand for full load distribution services.

The Lithuanian operator transports fresh produce across the continent and the latest additions will join its fleet of almost 3,000 trucks and 3,100 trailers – three-quarters of which are from Schmitz.

Mindaugas Raila, Girteka’s chairman (pictured, left, with Andreas Schmitz, chairman of Schmitz Cargobull), says: “Our aim is to provide our European clients with the best possible service, and above-average KPIs. To do this we need the best equipment in the industry: this is why, year after year, we choose Schmitz Cargobull.”

Girteka has been specifying Schmitz’s reefer semi-trailers for many years, citing their build quality and reliability. Raila says he’s also delighted with the curtainsiders: “We were particularly impressed with the Genios’s cold-rolled construction method, and the many security features that make the driver’s job easier.

“Having galvanised parts is also an important factor in the sustainability and value retention of the vehicle.”
