Big Tiger Trailers order for Welsh company

Cardiff based TWT Logistics Group has invested in Tiger Trailers again, making an order for seven trailers, comprising of six curtainsiders and a specialist PSK for container work.

They join the four trailers acquired from Tiger Trailers just over a year ago. Also included in the latest order for the Winsford-based manufacturer are curtainsided bodies for two rigid vehicles.

Talking about the work with Tiger Trailers, Trevor Taylor, owner of TWT said: “I have known Tiger’s Sales Director, Darren Holland for many years and he and the rest of the Tiger team are people I feel comfortable in dealing with. I am very happy with the product quality and, to date, their responsiveness to any queries we have had has been absolutely marvellous.”

The new trailers, alongside DAF and Mercedes Benz rigids, will be put into operation at TWT’s satellite depot at Andover where the operator is currently engaged in work to develop a new, larger site.

Talking about the trailers, Taylor noted: “We are specifying them all to full EN12642XL standard, even the frame and headboard on the PSK, because we feel we have a duty to our customers and the wider public to invest in equipment that is as safe as modern standards allow. That’s why we also buy premium trucks such as the DAF and Mercedes Benz rigids.”

TWT also acquired a number of DAF XF 480 FTG tractor units with ‘Super Space Cabs’.
