Grangemouth firm John Mitchell Haulage & Warehousing has now put the last of 90 new units from Dennison Trailers on the road in a move that renews almost half its total trailer fleet. 

The trailers, delivered in batches from June, comprise 60 sliding skeletals, 12 fixed skeletals, six tipping skeletals and 12 curtainsiders.

All have been specified with SAF drum braked axles for ease of maintenance, as well as Knorr-Bremse EBS braking systems, Aspock LED lights and Michelin tyres, and the curtainsiders also feature redesigned side pillars and wind deflector front panels.

The order has reduced the average age of the Mitchell fleet to around two years. 

Mitchell MD Iain Mitchell said his firm had been buying Dennison trailers for over 17 years, adding: “The excellent product quality and solid performance levels are matched by good value for money and strong residuals.”
