Zenith Trailer Rentals has placed a further order with Tiger Trailers, which will take the size of the Tiger fleet that Zenith operates to over 500 units.
The Cheshire-based trailer manufacturer first supplied to Zenith in 2021, with 100 tandem-axle box vans and 60 tri-axle curtainsiders finished in a customer’s livery. This year a further 250 Tiger trailers were added to its fleet, comprising 150 unbranded tri-axle single-deck curtainsiders and 100 curtainsided double-deck step-frame trailers with wraparound curtains,
The double-deckers feature bolted decks, which can be set to any of three positions, prioritising the upper or lower deck, or splitting them 50:50. They have aerodynamic sloping front ends for improved fuel economy, and kites with straps at the rear to enable the tying back of the curtains.
Zenith Trailer Rentals MD Phil Rodman, said: “We have developed a close and valued working relationship with Tiger Trailers over the last two years and are very pleased with the quality of the trailers manufactured in time and in full manner. The Tiger Trailers assets were built to our exact requirements and form an important part of our sizeable and versatile rental fleet of over 50,000 heavy commercial vehicles, and we look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with Tiger throughout 2023 and beyond.”
Darren Holland, sales director at Tiger Trailers, added: “We are proud to be supporting Zenith in manufacturing a diverse range of articulated trailers for their fleet, tailored to the required specifications. Tiger’s efficient production practices and continuous investment enable us to build large quantities of trailers to relatively expedient lead times. It’s a pleasure to work closely with Phil and the wider Zenith team and we look forward to continuing to support them over the coming months and years.”
