Evri adds 168 Tiger box van trailers to fleet

UK delivery firm Evri has commenced welcoming to its fast-growing fleet 168 new articulated box vans from Tiger Trailers, in time to support the opening of its largest delivery hub in Europe.

The new 4.6-metre-high box van trailers are manufactured to bespoke specifications, as Evri gears up to sort up to three million parcels every day going into peak season.

The trailers are of straight-frame design and incorporate various Tiger specific design components for strength and durability, including the integration of buffers within the rear frame assembly that complement the need for a roller shutter door.

To keep business and domestic customers’ parcels secure in transit between Evri distribution centres, a two-row, surface-mounted load securing system is fitted internally, along with a rear net and lashing rings. The rear frame has been designed with an integral gutter for improved run-off of water.

Evri also added 70 compressed natural gas 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.
