Evri has to add 168 new articulated box vans to its fleet as part of a deal with Tiger Trailers. The company formerly known as Hermes is taking the 4.6-metre-high box van trailers for operation at its new Barnsley superhub which will become its biggest in Europe.

The delivery company will sort up to 3m parcels every day going into peak season and all of the trailers will be operational ahead of the upcoming Black Friday rush.

David Landy, Evri’s head of fleet, said: “It has been great to work with the Tiger Team again and see our initial discussions around specification to become realised. This will ensure that our ‘in service’ is simplified in order to maintain the trailers more quickly and efficiently. It was imperative that specification, quality and delivery were all met and the team at Tiger have delivered on all fronts.”

The trailers are of straight-frame design and incorporate various Tiger specific design components, including the integration of buffers within the rear frame assembly that complement the need for a roller shutter door. A two-row, surface-mounted load securing system is also fitted, along with a rear net and lashing rings.

Evri has also added 70 compressed natural gas trucks from Iveco on to its fleet over the last twelve months.
