Schreurs & Sons is a third-generation farming business that is 100 per cent Australian family-owned and operated, specialising in celery, leek and baby leaf lines (including spinach, rocket and snow pea tendrils). With seven properties, spanning in total over 400 hectares, it is one of the largest suppliers of celery in Australia, and also serves international markets.
Chris Schreurs – Director of Business & Commercial Operations – takes pride in delivering high quality products to customers all year-round. His fleet transports fresh produce in Victoria, primarily between the business’ farm growing regions and the Melbourne wholesale market.
“As we don’t have loading docks on any of our farms, we need an efficient and safe solution that not only maintains the integrity of the produce (particularly on warm days), but also achieves minimal turnaround time between locations,” Chris said – adding he was recommended to invest in MaxiTRANS’ refrigerated transport equipment.
“Maxi-CUBE came highly recommended to us by our interstate freight partners, Consolidated Freight, and when we compared a Slide-a-Side to other equivalent options available, we believed Maxi-CUBE provided the best solution for our needs. MaxiTRANS’ willingness to work with us to ensure we obtained the most efficient set-up and best use of the Slide-a-Side design was a great contributing factor.”
