Cheshire-based Tiger Trailers has supplied an additional 250 semi-trailers of differing types to Zenith Trailer Rentals.
When joined by initial orders placed for 2023, this will take the size of the Tiger Trailers fleet that Zenith operates to more than 500 vehicles.
Tiger’s supply of trailers to Zenith commenced during 2021, with one hundred tandem axle box vans plus sixty tri axle curtainsiders.
This year, Tiger has manufactured a significant further volume of trailers for Zenith, made up of an additional 150 unbranded tri axle single deck curtainsiders and one hundred curtainsided double deck step-frame trailers with wraparound curtains for operational versatility.
The double deck trailers’ bolted decks can be set to any of three positions, prioritising the upper or lower deck, or splitting them 50:50, thus making them ideal for pallet networks.
Their roofs slope downwards at the front for aerodynamic and fuel-saving purposes, and the trailers’ bespoke load-securing specification includes the fitment of kites, with straps incorporated at the rear to enable the tying back of the curtains.
The double deck trailers will mainly operate out of Zenith’s Carrington depot to the west of Manchester.
Phil Rodman, Managing Director of Zenith Trailer Rentals, said: “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.”
