Third-party logistics provider Howard Tenens has taken delivery of three double-deck longer semi-trailers from Tiger Trailers.

The 15.6m step frame double deck trailers were developed by Tiger Trailers in conjunction with Howard Tenens and client Toolstation to meet the specific needs of the tool and accessory supplier. The bespoke design includes a three-quarter length hydraulic moving deck and a fixed deck over the step frame designed specifically to house plastic piping and other abnormal loads. The long semi-trailers can accommodate 87 cages, with 38 on each deck and an additional 11 on the neck of the trailer.

Richard Philpotts, National Fleet and Compliance Manager at Howard Tenens, says: “Two years ago we commissioned a standard double deck trailer from Tiger to trial in Toolstation’s fleet. The improvements in efficiency were notable, but since then the company has gone from strength to strength and the additional capacity of the LSTs became increasingly appealing. We knew the spec had to be perfect to get the full benefit of the 15.6m length, and following a detailed design consultation, Tiger worked relentlessly to find the perfect double deck solution. These new trailers are proving really versatile – combining the ability to carry a diverse payload, with an increased number of cages.”
