Thanks to an ongoing investment in Kurtainers from Krueger Transport Equipment, the Bacchus Marsh family owned and operated business, Traianon Transport, has modernised their fleet and optimised its reliability.
Traianon Transport started as a local beer run with one Bedford in 1979. Today they have 15 transport trucks on the road — a mix of single and B-double trailer combinations.
“We provide palletised full load local and intra/interstate freight services to leading Australian businesses ranging from packaging, paper reels, food/beverage products, racking and other retail products,” says Anthony Traianon. “Our fleet typically comprises single and B-double trailers in mezzanine, straight and drop deck combinations and frequently travel the east coast of Australia (New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria) and South Australia, as well as many regional places in between Mildura (VIC), Laura (SA), Newcastle (NSW), Tumut (NSW), Canberra (NSW) and Sunshine Coast (QLD). We take pride in reliable and quality service always ensuring we deliver a high level of service from booking to delivery.”
Since 1998, Traianon Transport has worked with trailer manufacturer Krueger Transport Equipment and uses its Kurtainer models including mezz deck, drop deck and straight deck.
The most recent Krueger trailers to join the fleet include a tri-axle 48’ 24-pallet drop deck Kurtainer with load restraint curtains and a tri-axle 45’ 22-pallet drop deck Kurtainer with load restraint curtains.
The load restraint technology that Krueger provides is the result of three-plus decades invested in the design and extensive testing and validation of curtain rollers, roof tracks, sliding side posts (a Krueger first) and curtain ratchet for superior tension.
“Our latest Krueger trailers were purchased to replace some of our old equipment,” Anthony says. “The most important part about investing in Krueger trailers is their quality – they withstand the test of time. Krueger recently refurbished a 2001 build and it is still in our fleet today.”
Krueger trailers, according to Anthony, are also easy to use. “They are all round a good quality trailer that never lets you down and if you do need something you never have to wait as their service and parts are outstanding. We can’t fault the workmanship.”
To complement its manufacturing capabilities, Krueger also assists heavy vehicle operations with an extensive national support network which includes fixed price servicing, spare parts, refurbishments, smash and damage repairs as well as chassis and body conversions for all trailer types. Krueger also provides full technical service and parts support via a dedicated Australia-wide network. Onsite and emergency vehicle support is also available via Krueger.
Lesley says Krueger have been exceptional to work with. “Whether we are speaking with sales, service or parts there are never any problems, even with short notice they are always happy to accommodate. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Krueger in any department and we will certainly be using them again in the future.”
Anthony defers to Krueger’s team for the first service and for anything the company is unable to do in-house. “It is important for us to support another Australian owned and operated business,” Anthony says. “And to keep these quality trailers being made right here in Victoria.”
