Tiger Trailers creates 168 new trailers for Evri
Parcel delivery company Evri, formally known as Hermes, has begun welcoming 168 British-built new articulated box vans from Tiger Trailers to its fleet, supporting the opening of its largest delivery hub in Europe.
Tiger’s sales, design and engineering teams worked closely with Evri to ensure that its new 4.6-metre-high box van trailers are manufactured to bespoke specifications, as the delivery company gears up to sort up to 3 million parcels every day going into peak season. All 168 trailers will be built at Tiger’s factory in Winsford, Cheshire.
Tiger manufactured 200 twin-axle box van trailers for Hermes in 2015, and the two companies share a focus on environmental sustainability by means of solar panels and tree-planting, along with job creation for their local areas. Evri has added 70 compressed natural gas (CNG) Iveco trucks to its fleet over the last twelve months, with Tiger manufacturing skeletal and other specialist trailers for the parcel firm’s CNG supplier.
David Landy, Evri’s head of fleet, said: “It has been great to work with the Tiger Team again and see our initial discussions around specification to become realised. This will ensure that our ‘in service’ is simplified in order to maintain the trailers more quickly and efficiently. It was imperative that specification, quality and delivery were all met and the team at Tiger have delivered on all fronts.”
Darren Holland, Tiger Trailers’ sales director, added: “Working alongside David and the Evri team has been great and we are really pleased with the finished product. The fact that we can offer a full package has meant that we have designed, manufactured and also provided the leasing for these trailers via Tiger Finance.”
Evri will have received all 168 of its new Tiger Trailers box vans in time for the UK’s Black Friday retail period, before it then continues to serve its customers throughout Christmas and beyond.
