Serco is supplying 31 dry freight truck bodies – including seven demountable load units – to Bakers SA Limited. The new bodies will be used for the distribution of FMCG, as well as white and brown goods on a national basis.

Serco Bakers SAThe new Serco units – 5m, 7m and 8,7m in length – are ideal for quick loading and offloading. The demount bodies are being fitted onto Fuso vehicles and the rest onto Mercedes Benz Ategos.

The first unit delivered was a Protec steel dry freight body, which is the first dry goods body produced in our new state-of-the-art manufacturing process recently introduced by Serco. The Protec steel panels are made in the company’s cutting-edge press, and incorporate exterior and interior heavy duty coated steel facings.

The vehicle was handed over at Futureroad Expo in Johannesburg last year. Clinton Holcroft, MD of Serco, says the demountable load bodies are a relatively underutilised concept on the South African market, resembling a container on wheels.

“The idea is that the body and the sub-structure can be dropped off at the distribution centre while the chassis is taken away to be reloaded. The turnaround time is much faster,” says Holcroft.

Features on the new bodies include whiting roll over doors; load securing rails with strapping solution to suit the trolleys; rear marker lights; bulkhead protection for trolleys and heavy duty lightweight Birch ply flooring.
