Serco, more renowned for its reefer range of trailers, has delivered on a tender it won to build two step deck flatbed trailers for the South African Police Services (SAPS). SAPS wanted special design features which Serco could provide thanks to their advanced design software which uses the latest 3D modeling and their modern steel fabrication facility in Durban.
The trailer features a 10-ton winch to load heavy vehicles should they not be driveable and is designed for the armoured vehicles to offload by driving from the front directly onto a standard flatdeck trailer if required.
Serco worked hand-in-hand with the SAPS technical staff to ensure all operational specification requirements were met. The trailers will be used to transport Nyala armoured vehicles to and from various destinations.
