ArrowXL invests in double deck trailers

,

ArrowXL, the two-man home delivery specialist. has invested £500,000 in 19 double deck trailers.

Chief executive officer Ian Howell said: “Each double deck will be pulling the load of 1.6 single deck trailers, bringing real savings on running costs and benefits to the environment.”

They are being used for retailers’ large and bulky products such as beds and mattresses, white goods, upholstery, bathroom suites and garden furniture. They will transport them to ArrowXL’s hubs in Airdrie, Enfield, Wigan and Worcester for delivery into customers’ homes.

The 19 double deck trailers, built by Cartwright, have replaced existing single deck trailers, reducing the numbers of ArrowXL vehicles on the road.

Owing to the heavy nature of the products, the new trailers have additional lift motors powering the top deck.
