Tiger Trailers to deliver 167 new trailers for ASDA

Winsford-based Tiger Trailers has begun producing and delivering 167 new trailers for ASDA. The supermarket giant is midway through welcoming into its fleet an initial order of 147 British-built tri-axle box van moving double deck trailers for UK operations, and 20 for the retailer’s Northern Ireland ferry-use operations.

Tiger’s new trailer solution for Asda provides up to a 44-pallet carrying capacity, and incorporates a ¾ length moving deck for versatility, powered by the Cheshire manufacturer’s in-house produced 4-ram hydraulic system.

A significant proportion of the 167 new trailers can already be seen in service on the road, primarily operating from the supermarket’s ambient distribution centres that are situated throughout the UK, along with its Irish Sea Carriers routes. Tiger Trailers is well known in the logistics industry for manufacturing bespoke articulated trailers and rigid bodywork to meet unique end-user requirements, and Asda’s new double deck trailers have been designed for transporting both cages and UK pallets.

Peter Hey, fleet procurement manager at ASDA, said: “We have collaborated with the Tiger team individuals in previous companies, but this order is the first time that we have worked with them directly at Tiger. Engagement with the Tiger team was excellent from the outset, including a number of visitors to their factory, and we are extremely happy with the trailers that they have produced. Tiger’s support has been fantastic throughout.”

Darren Holland, sales director at Tiger Trailers, added: “Working with Peter and the Asda team has been a great experience. From the initial on-site meetings to view their operations to sharing the 3D model of their precise trailer at the factory and finally presenting the trailer in our showroom to the Asda team we are really happy with the final product. These trailers will be servicing the Asda ambient operation, and we look forward to working with the Asda team in the future.”
