Craig Johnson Carrying Monday, May 20, 2013

The first of 11 trailers went on the road in October 2012.  Craig has had 5 x 6 axle curtain-side B-trains and 6 x 5 axle curtain-side full trailers built by Fruehauf Trailers in Fielding using NZH Gigant DKH2 19.5 disc axle combined with Gigant's FB70 air bag suspension.  The axles are fitted with the well known WDEFo PAN 19 calliper, an SKF cartridge grease filled bearing assembly, and fully enclosed EBS pole wheels and sensors.

The trailers are fulfilling a large contract to Courier Post and travel all over the Country with most units based in Taupo and running between Auckland and Wellington daily.  Other units are based in the South Island and travel between Picton and Christchurch as well as most other centres throughout the Island.  The trailers are all completing a significant amount of kilometres in a short space of time.

The majority of the servicing is done by Truckstops in Taupo and the servicemen have all commented about the ease of servicing the axles and suspension which requires no special tooling, and everything is easy to access.

Tama Arapere looks after the fleet as Operations/Dispatch Manager based at Stag Park in Taupo and is very pleased with the trailers and axle/suspension combination as he has had no lost time caused by service delays or mechanical failures, this is very important due to the short time frames he has to work with in order to get the Courier freight to the appropriate destinations on time.
