Transdek UK is launching a multi temperature double-deck trailer - the Tall Boy - at this year’s Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution Show.

The Yorkshire-based manufacturer has developed the trailer for Eddie Stobart Logistics to operate on primary and trunking distribution contracts, and offers internal load clearance of up to 2.2m on each of its internal floors.

It can carry up to 55% extra load when compared to a single-deck trailer, saving up to 35% on delivery miles for products that have previously only been transported by single-deck trailers. This is achieved by combining an ultra low chassis with maximum trailer dimensions.

The Tall Boy, which is available in a range of specifications, is also intended to be used to import lightweight, temperature controlled products from continental Europe, cutting up to 35% of ferry costs.

On display at the show will be a Tall Boy trailer with two temperature zones for transporting chilled and ambient products. It includes a Dhollandia tail-lift and can be married to Transdek’s double-deck loading bay lifts for maximum loading speed.

Transdek UK will also be displaying its latest multi-temperature wedge double-deck trailer at the exhibition, which has been supplied to Eddie Stobart. It can transport up to 50 standard pallets or up to 90 roll cages.

Transdek MD Mark Adams said: “We’re extremely excited about the continuing success of the Wedge trailer and the potential for the Tall Boy. We are proud to be working with Eddie Stobart to help transform the face of UK logistics and we see the Wedge as one of the key elements in that mix.

“We’ve been carrying out trials with some of the country’s leading retailers to demonstrate how they can carry up to seven tonnes more payload and 23% extra load by volume in these trailers when compared to stepframe moving deck trailers.”

The Tall Boy trailer will be on stand D12 at this year’s show at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, from 13 to 14 September.
