South-west warehousing and distribution specialist Willmotts Transport Ltd has taken delivery of 60 new Tiger curtainsiders to support the continued expansion of the business, bringing the company’s fleet to over 250 trailers, eighty percent supplied by the Cheshire-based manufacturer over the last five years.

The securing of a new transport contract for a corrugated cardboard manufacturer meant that they required an additional 60 trailers within a short space of time, which Tiger facilitated as a long-standing supplier for Willmotts. Whilst half of this batch are standard-height curtainsiders, the others come in at 4.7 metres, to cater for the end user’s variable cargo sizes.

Group Managing Director, Andy Stott said, ‘They will look really striking out on the road and provide first-class representation when delivering for our customers. Our BRCGS certification extends to our own fleet, so it is important for our customers to know that their goods are being carried in clean, new vehicles by a reliable supply chain partner. Our trailers demonstrate a strong brand and the partnership we have developed over many years with Tiger Trailers is one we value.’

Willmotts’ Managing Director, Dan Gray added, ‘These new Tiger trailers are a high-specification addition to our portfolio, built and delivered by Tiger within the agreed timescales’.

The trailers’ specification includes Wabco’s EBS braking system, Axcsend’s BPMS, a reversing camera, two LED reversing lamps, and a branch guard fitted to the header. The trailers were delivered from Cheshire to the West Country by Ambassador Motor Company.

Steve Pollock, Business Development Director at Tiger Trailers commented, “We have had a close working relationship with Wilmotts for many years, and are proud to partner with such an esteemed company in the industry. Working closely with Andy and Dan, we were pleased to turn around the 60 bespoke curtainsiders to join their existing fleet. We look forward to continuing to develop this well-established partnership for years to come”.
