Maritime Transport has placed its first order with Tiger Trailers for 100 curtainsider trailers.

The 13.6m curtainsiders have a cleaspan pillarless roof as well as including two rear strap pouches, a specific load securing setup, TIR cord, toolbox, and SAF drum brake axles. The majority have harwood floors but ten have phenolic non-slip plywood finishes.

Paul Heyhoe, Maritime Transport fleet director, said: “We are pleased to have placed our first order with Tiger Trailers, who met our timescales and specification at a time where production schedules are being delayed across various industries. The new trailers are a welcome addition to our fleet and will bring greater efficiencies and flexibility to our distribution division, ensuring it is prepared for substantial growth we have seen in new contracts.”

Maritime’s trailer fleet includes curtainsiders of various apertures, some of which are fitted with tail-lifts to suit their varied duties, along with skeletals of both sliding and fixed types, tippers, gensets and goosenecks. They are pulled by a variety of makes of tractor unit from Scania, Volvo, and Mercedes-Benz with more than 1600 vehicles on the fleet.

Speaking about the new order from Maritime, Stephen Pollock, Tiger Trailers’ business development director, said: “Here at Tiger we are extremely pleased to have welcomed Maritime Transport as a customer, following their decision to place this order for 100 curtainsiders with ourselves. It has been an absolute pleasure to have developed a close working relationship with Paul Heyhoe and his colleagues and we look forward to supporting them going forwards.”
