CURTAINSIDER TRANSPORT

 

DONOVAN TRANSPORT are a preferred national distribution carrier for key enterprises with Irish operations.   To advance it’s service offering Donovan transport has invested in a number of Curtain Side solutions to ensure safe and dry transportation and delivery of your goods.

Curtain sides are an advanced solution for greater efficiency in transportation and haulage of cargo. Curtain sides or taut liners are designed to provide fast and easy access to cargo in the body of the vehicle, while keeping it secure and sheltered.

Curtain sides are a combination of a flatbed transportation, allowing for unloading from the side of the vehicle, with the added protection you would expect from a dry van, combined together to provide an ideal method of transporting large loads, while protecting goods from the elements in a convenient and efficient way.

The curtain sides or taut liners contain retaining straps which allow the curtain to be pulled back to one side on release, allowing for convenient loading or unloading of cargo.

Curtain side or taut liner transport is ideal for transporting goods which are large or have irregular loads such as oversized materials, building components or particularly fragile, sensitive goods with strength of external walls with the added convenience of an attractive curtain side covering. They allow for the accommodation of large, bulky goods while containing them neatly, securely and sheltered from the environment.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL

 

DONOVAN TRANSPORT are a preferred national distribution carrier for key enterprises with Irish operations.    To enhance it’s service offering, Donovan Transport supply a number of refrigerated transport solutions including “Gen Sets”  to ensure the safe carriage of your perishable goods.

A refrigerated container or reefer is an intermodal container (shipping container) used in intermodal freight transport that is refrigerated for the transportation of temperature sensitive cargo.

While a reefer will have an integral refrigeration unit, they rely on external power, from electrical power points at a land based site, a container ship or on quay. When being transported over the road on a trailer they can be powered from diesel powered generators (“gen sets”) which attach to the container whilst on road journeys.

The impact on society of reefer containers is vast, allowing consumers all over the world to enjoy fresh produce at any time of year and experience previously unavailable fresh produce from many other parts of the world.
