Temperature controlled trailer manufacturer Maxi-CUBE is playing a crucial role in the growing success of Queensland perishable food transporter, Cannon Logistics.

Cannon Logistics currently transports perishable foods for approximately 90 clients all over Queensland including retail supermarkets, shipping providers, food service distributors, produce growers and mining towns in the outer regions of the state.

Cannon Logistics Director Zac Popov understands the importance of establishing strong ties within the refrigerated transport market for surviving the crucial start-up phase. Zac has managed to steer around many of the common start-up problems by partnering with a few knowledgeable suppliers.

Maxi-CUBE, for instance assisted Cannon Logistics in cementing a foothold in the market by helping the transport company build a fleet of 16 single refrigerated vans. All purchased from Maxi-CUBE’s Queensland dealership, Trailer Sales, each van is 48 feet (14.6 metres) in length and has the capacity to maintain a temperature of -23°C while being used for multi-pickups and deliveries.

Zac recently added two more 48-foot vans to the fleet to bring the total to 18 units. While pricing is an important factor when purchasing, Zac also appreciates Maxi-CUBE’s attention to detail when it comes to thermal efficiency and the van’s ability to withstand the hits and bumps of Queensland’s rough roads.

Ever since he took delivery of the first Maxi-CUBE refrigerated van, Zac hasn’t had it off the road other than for routine servicing. When Zac challenged Maxi-CUBE to help Cannon reach the next level, Trailer Sales’ Scott Thiesfield introduced him to a range of high-spec features, including Maxi-CUBE’s flat distribution floor with ‘Maxi-GRIP’ finish and a Dual Evaporator (dual temperature) setup.

Scott suggested Maxi-CUBE’s Maxi-GRIP floor because of its ability to reduce the risk of injury from wet or slippery floors and suitability for using both pallet jacks and fork lifts. Additionally, the Dual Evaporators enable the cool temperatures to be equally distributed to all corners of the van allowing for the stock to maintain its freshness at all times even when the doors are open during delivery.

After inspecting the new design, Zac was happy with the added safety offered by the Maxi-GRIP floor and was particularly impressed with the extra peace of mind provided by the Dual Evaporators. With the two new features, Cannon Logistics is able to ensure excellent temperature management during transport while also reducing the possibility of damaged goods.
