SDC’s to join the fleet
We are pleased to announce that SDC have won the order to supply a number of new Tautliner trailers. The trailers will all be built to a high specification with Keruing floors with steel omega sections and ENXL specification curtains. All our new trailers are specified wherever possible on BPW axles, drum brakes and Hldex ebs as we have always found this to be a reliable combination. The new trailers will be a welcome addition to the fleet. The trailers are due early in 2014.
Euroliners on Route
Network Hire have recently ordered a number of new Krone and Schmitz Euroliner’s to join the fleet. The new trailers are to the latest EN12642XL load security certification.

Some trailers also have the lifting roof system. These will be a welcome addition to the fleet and some trailers have been snapped up before arrival.
Tax discs displayed on car windscreens, a staple of British motoring for almost a century, are to disappear, George Osborne will announce in his Autumn Statement. Instead of displaying a disc to prove that a car is fully taxed, motorists will instead register their car online.
Traffic cameras will then automatically track vehicles on the road and identify those that are not registered for road tax. The change is part of the trend to provide paperless services, a drive that has already seen millions of people submitting tax returns online.
Tax discs were introduced in 1921 and it remains a legal obligation for vehicles on the public highway to display a valid disc. Inspecting discs was once a regular duty for police officers. However, vehicles’ tax statuses are now stored in a central electronic register, meaning officers can verify if a vehicle is taxed simply by checking the registration number on the database.
A Treasury spokesperson said the change will save British businesses £7 million a year in administrative costs. The spokesman said: “This is a visual symbol of how we are moving government into the modern age and making dealing with government more hassle free.”
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their valued business in 2013 and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2014.
