Yacoob’s Transport Expands Fleet with New Serco Dry Freight Interlinks
Pietermaritzburg-based trucking company Yacoob’s Transport has added two new Serco-built dry freight interlinks to its refrigerated vehicle fleet.

A key priority for the customer was to get the best possible payload and maximised loading volume. This was achieved with a 6.1m front, boxbody trailer and a 12.2m rear, box/ body trailer, also known as a Superlink.
The trailer has a through-loading capability to ensure efficient loading and offloading as well as a lightweight chassis and new look lightbox and chevron board, giving a payload of over 36 tons.
Yacoob Dhoda, the CEO of Yacoob’s Transport, has been a long-standing customer of Serco’s, having bought a number of refrigerated trailers from the company over the past 20 years.
The two new dry freight interlink trailers will be used to handle new contracts and diversify the fleet.
Serco is proud to be associated with Yacoob’s Transport and looks forward to their support in the future.
