How GLT Trailers Became Visy’s Transport Solution of Choice

Visy, a globally renowned packaging and resource recovery company, has been welcomed to our growing family of satisfied customers. 

The journey began at the Brisbane Truck Show, where our team had the pleasure of meeting the Group Asset Optimisation Manager at Visy. This encounter paved the way for a partnership that aligns seamlessly with our commitment to providing innovative, sustainable transport solutions.

Visy approached us with a specific challenge – the need for a dependable and efficient solution to transport substantial quantities of plastic cullet. Their tipper transport fleet required a high-capacity trailer that could not only carry significant loads but also ensure the safe and secure transportation of materials. The primary goal was to reduce trailer weight, enabling Visy to maximise sand transportation on the return journey and optimise overall operational efficiency.

After a thorough exploration of various options, we collectively concluded that the ideal solution for Visy’s requirements was the implementation of our plank trailers. These trailers, with a remarkable body height of up to 8’2″ (2500mm) over the kingpin, perfectly addressed Visy’s need for increased capacity without compromising safety. The unique design of our drop deck trailers, specifically chosen for this application, played a pivotal role in achieving the desired cubic payload and a lower centre of gravity.

One key feature of our plank trailers that appealed to Visy was the increased wall strength, preventing bulging when loaded. This not only ensured the secure transportation of plastic cullet but also added an extra layer of durability to the GLT trailers, enhancing their overall performance and longevity.

As we embark on this exciting journey with Visy, we are proud to contribute to their efficiency and sustainability goals. Our tailored transport solution not only meets their immediate needs but also aligns with our shared commitment to excellence in the industry.

At GLT, we are not just a supplier; we are a partner invested in the success of our customers. We look forward to continued collaboration with Visy and are confident that our innovative solutions will play a crucial role in advancing their transport operations.

Together, we are shaping the future of transportation, one efficient and reliable solution at a time.
