The Malcolm Group has signed a contract with UK manufacturer SDC Trailers to provide 200 new semi-trailers over two years.
The new tri-axle trailers are 13.6 metres long and 4.5 metres high. The trailers will have flush rear doors, aerodynamic side skirts and bulkhead pod to improve fuel economy, and WISA-Trans flooring for a robust surface.
The first 90 are due for delivery in 2011 with a further 110 next year. They will be direct replacements for old trailers coming out of the Malcolm fleet.
Chief executive Andrew Malcolm said: “Quality and service is paramount to our business and this is derived from our continual investment in the latest vehicles and cutting edge technology.”
