Dennis Distribution cuts carbon footprint with Gray and Adams lifting-deck trailer

Malton, North Yorkshire-based Dennis Distribution has taken delivery of its first double-deck semi-trailer - a lifting-deck built by Gray and Adams with a single-temperature Carrier Vector 1950 refrigeration unit.

The trailer offers a 44-pallet capacity - four more than that achieved by a standard double-decker - the 10% increase being down to the manufacturer making practical use of every inch of space on the two decks.

General manager at Dennis Distribution Andrew Revely said: “We identified a daily route that offered an opportunity to achieve some significant efficiency gains by making full use of the lifting-deck trailer’s additional carrying capacity. By maximising the utilisation of our tractor unit fleet it has also freed up a vehicle for other work.”

The trailer is now being used to transport beef, veal and venison on a daily basis from Dovecote Park’s Stapleton Estate in Pontefract to the Waitrose regional distribution centre in Bracknell.
