Tiger Trailers supplies 21 more trailers to B&M

Variety retailer B&M has taken delivery of 21 more specialist trailers from Tiger Trailers to further strengthen its fleet ahead of Christmas.

B&M’s order comprised 21 straightframe fixed double deck wedge vans, which can carry 52 pallets by utilising the full length of the lower deck. The incorporation of an integrated twin-tier tail lift from Dhollandia enables efficient deliveries to be made directly from B&M’s distribution centres to its nationwide stores. The customer-specific aperture dimensions identified by Tiger Trailers’ designers allow the bottom deck to be loaded without moving the tail lift, which forms the upper rear closure.

The double deck trailers’ wedge design provides an operator loading height at the rear of 1917mm, which tapers towards the front of the vehicle. The rear frame assembly is reinforced at the bottom to protect against damage from loading bays, and Tiger Trailers’ ‘captive rave’ load securing and restraint system is incorporated inside for enhanced efficiency along with added operator safety.

Tiger Trailers has supplied B&M with more than 400 trailers over the past six years. During this time, the manufacturer has utilised its knowledge in the design and manufacture of double deck trailers to create a complete loading solution designed to meet B&M’s exact requirements. An array of Tiger Trailers Deck Pod loading bays are in operation at B&M’s largest warehousing and distribution site, Bedford.

Darren Holland, Tiger Trailers’ sales director, said: “Tiger has worked closely with the B&M logistics & warehousing teams since 2014. During this time, we are extremely pleased that we have developed the loading and transport solutions to the degree that is evident today. To be able to offer this unique level of service to their operation is very important to us, which we pride ourselves on.”
