EWT First Quadruple Road Train

EWT POM have recently started pulling the first quadruple road train. Hooking up two A'trailers and a 40ft heavy duty skeleton trailer onto a prime mover, drivers Mr Sogo Hao & Mr Tom Sare have been able to transport up to 40 empty 20ft containers from EWT Baruni Depot to POM Wharf Shed 4 and Motukea Port in a period of 6 hours. This operation has been made possible by the hard work of EWT management and Training Department in training a few drivers and having the trust and belief that this almost impossible operation could be carried out. All safety measures were taken into consideration prior to the truck being on the road with these containers. EWT is looking at having more semi-trailer drivers trained in pulling this quadruple road train so it can serve its clients to the best of its ability.
