MaxiTRANS’ Western Australian dealership sold Freighter trailers to a newly established freight company, Kimberley Freightlines.
 
Kimberley Freightlines services the Perth to Kimberley route for several large mining and construction groups. Freighter was the trailer of choice for CEO John Kendrick who aims to deliver superior performance for his customers. His latest two acquisitions are Freighter drop-deck T-liners, which in addition to the standard gates are also fitted with Freighter's patented LoadHold load restraint curtains as an additional level of load security as well as mezzanine decks. John takes great pride in guaranteeing to his customers that their freight will arrive on time and in perfect condition.
 
Explaining that he runs his freight service on one of the harshest routes in the country, John says that his customers insist on gates and he cannot afford any risk of damage due to the sensitive nature of some of the cargo. The additional stability provided by the LoadHold technology assures a greater level of safety and peace of mind.
 
The Perth – Derby, Kimberley run at 2500km tests even the best of transport gear, with bad cambers, broken surfaces, wandering cattle and road temperatures often over 60 degrees being some of the challenges thrown up at transport operators.
 
Mike Dawson is one of the sales staff based at the MaxiTRANS WA dealership and brings more than 35 years of varied transport industry experience to the dealership’s customers. Mike’s experience, along with the backing of MaxiTRANS’ dedicated design and engineering team at the factory in Ballarat has provided Kimberley Freightlines with a specialised curtain and gates combination to make sure that all the cargo has maximum protection.
 
According to John, Mike Dawson's level of service is a key reason for staying with the Freighter product. With the WA dealership a key part of the MaxiTRANS group and its future, Mike sees a great advantage in the ability of his company’s factory engineers to design, develop and build trailers specified for the task.
 
Supplying Freighter trailers, Maxi-CUBE vans and Hamelex White tippers to the WA market, Mike takes pride in making a difference to his many transport operator customers.
