SDC Trailers has inked a major deal with Eddie Stobart for 240 new trailers.

The £6.8m order is SDC Trailers’ first big contract win since it was bought by CIMC Vehicles, the China-based global trailer manufacturer in June.

The company will deliver 50 gooseneck skeletal trailers and 25 extendable skeletal trailers for Eddie Stobart’s port logistics, 125 curtainsiders for retail operations and 40 brick and block trailers for the operator’s aggregate division.

It follows the delivery of 50 box trailers to Stobart last month and 650 curtainsiders and boxvan trailers earlier in 2016.
