Tiger Trailers to deliver 38 new box vans for Warburtons

Winsford-based Tiger Trailers has begun producing and delivering 38 rigid box vans for Warburtons. The new vans will join the bakery brand’s nationwide fleet of vehicles delivering fresh bread to 18,500 stores across the country every day.

With regular visits to Tiger’s factory and 3D-model review sessions during the initial design phase, the vans were designed to meet unique operational requirements as they were set to join a highly-active store delivery fleet. A bespoke, intelligent, and ergonomic design was required, with durability and accessibility as cornerstones of the build.

Built on a 14-tonne DAF chassis, each rigid is fitted with Warburtons-specification racking along its sides, with adjustable centre aisle load bars to suit the customer’s loading requirements. They are finished in Warburtons orange, painted in house at Tiger.

Steve Gray, head of transport at Warburtons, said: “It has been reassuring to have been involved throughout the design and manufacturing process. We have taken delivery of 10 of the vans already and are very impressed with the final product. We are looking forward to a further 28 joining our fleet in spring this year.”

Tom Stott, technical sales manager at Tiger Trailers, added: “It’s been a pleasure to work closely with Steve and his team at Warburtons. At Tiger we are proud to offer competitive lead times, and guarantee a premium product without compromising on quality. To have done so for one of Britain’s most-recognisable brands is something to be celebrated, and we are hopeful to build on the relationship we have established with Steve and Warburtons in the future.”

Ten of Warburtons’ new Tiger rigids, delivered in late 2023, can already be seen out on the roads, operating out of several of Warburtons’ 22 nationwide depots.
