East Yorkshire logistics provider Harrison Solway have taken delivery of six new curtainsider trailers from SDC, the first in a promising new relationship with the firm.

The company is in the process of purchasing additional land to increase their warehousing capacity to 20,000 pallets due to growth and ongoing demand from current and new clients alike.
