TRAILER POWERHOUSE MaxiTrans saw sweeping success at the Brisbane Truck Show this year, from Freighter’s dominant awards performance to a range of new products unveiled across the Group’s six equipment brands.
The theme for MaxiTrans was efficiency, staffing its enormous stand with a number of PBS specialists to provide advice to prospective buyers and inquisitive productivity-hungry operators attending the show.
Major releases from MaxiTrans included the nextgeneration Maxi- Cube van and Peki truck body models. A range of recently launched products were showcased, such as the Freighter T- Liner Mark II, Freighter Drop Deck Semi, Hamelex-White PBS Dog Tipper with ‘ Landslide’, and a Lusty EMS Drop Deck Semi Tipper.
A popular attraction was the enormous Azmeb High Volume Side Tipper, which in essence looks like two tippers on top of each other, occupying the back of the MaxiTrans stand.
Freighter cleaned up at the Brisbane Truck Show Awards, taking out four prestigious titles and proving dominant within the trailer space.
The awards, as seen below,
are proof of Freighter’s innovation in the load restraint game: • Best Component, Equipment
or Service Innovation – Freighter Hanging Load Restraint Gates
• Best Trailer – Freighter T- Liner Mark II with Hanging and Sliding Post Load Restraint Gates • Best Australian Designed and Engineered Product – Freighter T- Liner Mark II • Best Australian Manufactured Innovation – Freighter T- Liner® Mark II.
MaxiTrans managing director and chief executive officer Dean Jenkins attributed the awards to the hard-working staff and a strong focus on safety and productivity.
“From the team who contributed to building the show trailers, to the engineers, purchasing and operational staff working in the background, everybody has contributed in some way to winning these awards and we should all be very proud,” Jenkins says. “The recognition from the judges is testament to our innovation program focusing on increasing the operational safety and productivity of our products.”
Jenkins says he believes that over the past three years, through a range of product innovations, MaxiTrans has become the leading manufacturer of safe, efficient trailers across Australia and New Zealand.
