DPD has been adding new box van trailers and double deck trailers throughout 2021 with 250 added to the fleet.

The Tiger trailers have been delivered in several batches with 100 tandem axle single deck box van trailers, along with 150 moving deck double deck trailers.

Darren Wilson, associate director - linehaul & transport at DPD UK said: “DPD’s sustainability strategy is based on examining every aspect of our operation to make it more efficient and better for the environment. We thrive on innovation and that’s exactly what Tiger is doing in the trailer space. We’ve ordered over 250 trailers from them to support our growth, all of which will be manufactured in the UK using the latest technology and greenest components.”

He added: “In fact, the material being used on the double-deck trailer panels is constructed in such a way as to be totally recyclable. We love working with suppliers who share the same values and goals and Tiger is certainly one such supplier.”
