Trailer and body manufacturer Serco recently fitted insulated bodies on two Tata chassis and facilitated vehicle branding on the vehicles – all within a week – for Golden Lay in Zambia.
The insulated bodies will keep the eggs at constant room temperature while they are transported throughout Zambia and neighbouring countries.
Serco sales executive, Steve Davenport, says work started on fitting the pre-assembled bodies on the chassis on a Monday, and by the Friday the job was done and dusted – including the sign writing – and the vehicles were on their way back to Zambia.
MD of Golden Lay, South African-born Gys White, says: “I had previous dealings with Serco when I was in the Cape and was thus aware of its standards of workmanship and efficiency.
“When Golden Lay decided to replace two of its old steel-body vehicles, I knew we need look no further than Serco to get the job done properly. And we are very pleased with the result,” he continues.
White – who recently toured Serco’s Johannesburg factory and left very impressed – says the two new vehicles were now “the best” in the Golden Lay fleet.
