Willmotts Transport has added 30 new curtainsided trailers to its fleet along with new temperature-controlled units.

The new EN12642XL-rated curtainsiders from Tiger Trailers will join the 150-strong units used by the independent warehousing and distribution company.

Tiger Trailers has supplied Willmotts with more than 50 trailers, including double decks, urban trailers and rigids and these latest deliveries have been specified with galvanised chassis and end frames for enhanced strength. They also have non-slip plywood floors internal and external LED lamps, tool boxes, a branch guard, BPW axles, and Goodyear Fuel Saver tyres.

The South West-based haulier has also introduced to its fleet 13.6m single-temperature refrigerated units in order to their versatility in the food and drink retail sector.

“We’ve always been very pleased with the quality and specification of Tiger Trailers’ products and the high level of service provided from the manufacturer’s teams, from sales and handover/delivery to aftercare. We are extremely proud of our curtainsider fleet, which demonstrates their desire to match customers’ bespoke requirements from features ranging in size from tail-lifts, through to lighting and safety decals, and we had no hesitation in welcoming some of the first of Tiger’s new temperature-controlled trailers to our inventory,” said Andy Stott, group managing director of owners Stotts Group.

Stephen Pollock, Tiger Trailers’ business development director, added: “Assisting Willmotts has always been a pleasure and they have become a cherished customer of ours. It’s rewarding to work with such a large operator with diverse load requirements, as evidenced through our steps to meet paper transportation regulations, and with a team that is so passionate about their trailers, trucks and other vehicles. We thank Willmotts for their loyalty to Tiger and look forward to our new refrigerated trailers playing their role in the company’s operations at a time when logistics key workers are receiving deserved attention.”
