Freezex reduces running costs with Maxi-CUBE Classic reefers

  • Posted on Thursday 21st, May 2020.

Refrigerated transport business, Freezex, recently purchased two new 22-pallet Maxi-Cube Classic refrigerated trailers from MaxiTRANS to modernise its fleet.

For over three decades, Freezex has provided temperature-controlled transport, warehouse management, cross docking and freight forwarding services across New South Wales.

Freezex Director, Luke Howard-bath, has run the family business since 2008 and invested in MaxiTRANS equipment as part of an ongoing move to upgrade fleet assets.

“We had heard good things about the Maxi-CUBE Classic Reefer trailers so we decided to go with that," said Howard-Bath.

"The trailers are very well-built and the level of quality they offer is outstanding.

"The material used for the body of the trailers is top-quality. The refrigeration units get to the temperature a lot quicker and hold the temperature very well, which helps us save on running costs. They are very efficient units," he said.

Driven by continuous innovation and product enhancement, the Maxi-CUBE range is reported to deliver outstanding performance without comprising on tare weight, which results in better payload and fuel efficiency for operators. The range is designed and manufactured locally, which is beneficial when keeping in mind the tough Australian road and weather conditions. It also has a long history of proven durability and strength in all conditions, while maintaining optimum thermal efficiency.

Howard-Bath said the MaxiTRANS NSW dealership, located in Smeaton Grange, is conveniently located for his business, providing easy access to after-market service and support.

“MaxiTRANS’ service and support is first-class," he said.

"Our overall experience with them has been very good. It’s not the first time we have bought something from MaxiTRANS so we know by experience about the quality of service and the level of after-market support they provide.

“I like consistency. I also like to work with people who are geographically close to us so if we ever need help or support it doesn’t become a hassle to deal with them.”

In addition to quality, Howard-Bath said he also appreciated that at the time they were looking to purchase, MaxiTRANS had a range of products readily available.

“MaxiTRANS had these trailers in stock which meant we were able to buy them and put them straight to use," he said. "There wasn’t any downtime for us which was a huge benefit.”

In collaboration with MaxiTRANS, Freezex has been using one of the Maxi-CUBE Classic trailers to promote awareness about men’s health issues by displaying ‘Movember’ campaign livery on the side of the trailer. A cause that both companies are very proud to be promoting awareness for.

In other news, MaxiTRANS urges fleets to take advantage of stimulus with ready to go and pre-owned equipment.
