Don-Bur delivers new trailers for Poundland
Trailer manufacturer Don-Bur has delivered 23 new ‘Wedge’ lifting deck longer semi-trailers (LSTs) to retailer Poundland. The British-built trailers are 15.650m long and can carry up to 60 UK pallets; eight more pallets than a standard length double deck trailer and 34 more than a standard length single deck equivalent.
Poundland is making progress in reducing its environmental impact and improving the efficiency of its operations. Don-Bur says its new lifting deck LSTs will contribute to these goals and allow the company to carry more goods per trip and reduce its overall vehicle mileage.
Don-Bur worked closely with Poundland to develop the specifications of the new trailers, which are designed to be as fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly as possible. The trailers feature a number of sustainability and operational benefits.
Daniel Challinor, sales & commercial director at Don-Bur, said: “We are delighted to have worked with Poundland to design, manufacture and deliver the new green lifting deck LSTs. These trailers offer a number of significant benefits, including increased payload capacity, reduced emissions and improved safety and efficiency. We are confident that they will help Poundland to achieve its operational and environmental goals.”
Greg Peacock, central transport operations manager at Poundland, added: “We’re pleased to have partnered with Don-Bur – the introduction of these new trailers will help us make a positive impact, carrying more goods per trip and reducing our overall vehicle mileage.”
