“The instigation of a rental division reflects MaxiTrans’ continuing commitment to providing solutions to customers’ needs,” said Andrew McKenzie, MaxiTrans Group General Manager Sales and Distribution. “Increasingly tight contract start-up dates and difficult-to-predict seasonal demands are a reality for our customers.
“TraileRentals is an important addition to the MaxiTrans portfolio in order to meet these requirements and to enhance our full-service offering.”
