Transdek UK will exhibit its 10.6m-long Urban Wedge Max double-deck trailer at the CV Show in Birmingham in April.

The trailer has a capacity of 72 roll cages and, according to the manufacturer, is ideal for deliveries to retail parks and urban areas where standard trailer lengths are restricted.

Transdek said it carries up to 100% more payload than an equivalent urban artic and 150% more than a typical 18-tonne rigid.

The Urban Wedge Max, available in ambient and chilled configurations, is based on the company’s 13.6m Wedge Max used for high-volume distribution on primary trunking routes. It also features Transdek’s V-Glide sash type rear doors, which slide vertically within the rear frame, ensuring only one deck is open at a time.

Paul Avery, MD - trailers at Transdek UK, said: “With the growing problem of congestion in urban centres, particularly in major UK cities such as London, Manchester and Aberdeen, our Urban Wedge Max offers a unique solution to reducing the number of vehicles on deliveries by up to 50% to 60%.

“With options for steering axles, double-deck artics can manoeuvre much more nimbly than smaller rigid trucks. We believe these vehicles will come to play a major role in combatting the mounting environmental and economic challenges that face the urban freight transport sector.”
