Skel Trailers - Increase your fleet utilisation and flexibility
Freight requirements change often, but your trailer doesn't have to. With a comprehensive range of container equipment types, SCF's Skel + Container combination provides a cost effective solution to quickly add fleet capacity and flexibility.
Increase your flexibility with a skel and container
The skel and container combination introduces a new world of flexibility. With the ability to quickly interchange the type of container on a skel, you can use the equipment you need, when you need it.
What are the benefits of a skel and container combination?
Match your container to your freight
SCF has been building containers for over 25 years. These are designed to store or transport specific freight, from pallets, temperature controlled foods and liquids, furniture and much more.
Standard trailers are usually suited to a specific freight group. With the ability to quickly swap your container on a skel, you can hire a container to match your freight.
Short and long-term lease available
Different requirements need different supply options. Our range of containers can be supplied on short and long-term arrangements.
A hire option is an effective way to manage your cashflow, save capital and align your rental costs to the task at hand.
Hire it all from one supplier
SCF takes the complexity out of your equipment supply. One national supplier, one set of paperwork, one provider to support your needs.
From road to rail
Containers are not just limited to road usage. The skel and container combination is your key to unlocking the possibilities of rail. Australia’s vast rail network allows you to service greater distances, reducing costs and complexity, while unlocking new opportunities.
Grow your business
Take advantage of SCF's skel and container to grow or compliment your existing fleet. Easily add rental equipment when needed to support your business growth.
Positioned for growth
Dry, refrigerated, bulk, liquid - there is a container to suit almost any cargo.
Containers allow you to quickly trial and develop new markets to grow your existing business or target new opportunities.
Lease what you need
SCF Skel and container equipment can be aligned to your changing needs. Save capital by hiring what you need, when you need it. Short and long-term rentals provide financial flexibility to improve utilisation without crippling your cashflow.
Capitalise on high demand
Peak periods, volume surges, new customers. Changing freight is hard to predict.
Rental allows you to quickly take advantage of opportunities and service your demand. You can also quickly reduce your costs at the end of a surge.
