Loading and unloading made easier

Multi-user business TNT Network Logistics has spent £4.25M on buying 250 Cartwright triaxle clearspan curtainsided trailers. The order, which also includes 30 rigid vehicles, is the largest that Network Logistics has placed with a single trailer manufacturer and the first to feature a clearspan roof.

The company’s managing director, David Bermingham, says: “We specified the clearspan roof, which has no posts along the length of the trailer, in order to provide both easier loading / unloading and a safer environment for drivers and operational staff.”

In addition to the clearspan roof, the trailers feature sideguard aerodynamics, Knorr-Bremse EBS, a 28mm Lamideck floor with a 5mm steel chequer plate at the rear, and a 10mm fifth wheel plate designed to accommodate the intensive coupling and uncoupling of a multi-user operation.
