Cartwright has unveiled a prototype of a new lifting-roof double-deck box trailer.
Showcased on its stand in hall 3, the prototype has capacity for 98 cages, rather than the 75 that other trailers of the same travelling height can carry.
Cartwright said the benefits of the trailer will be considerable, promising fuel savings of up to 5% as well as a smaller carbon footprint.
The manufacturer said the trailer is particularly aimed at parcel carriers, especially those carrying loose parcels in cages.
Full production of the trailer is due to start later this year.
Technical director Lionel Curtis said: “On joining Cartwright four years ago, I said that we wanted to solve customers’ problems before they know they have them.
"With major developments such as the new lifting roof we are achieving innovation across the range, but it should be remembered that we are still a regular volume manufacturer with an excellent product range to meet our customers’ everyday fleet requirements."
