Clugston Distribution truck with flatbed trailer - April 2018

Clugston Distribution Services has spent half-a-million pounds on 20 new flatbed trailers.

Fifteen of the trailers, all additions to the fleet, are extendable as well as five standard flatbed trailers, all of which are currently in service.

Clugston’s new trailers are individually designed for the transportation of various products up to 22 metres in length and are also built to British Steel specification requirements.

The investment comes after a six-figure upgrade to its truck and trailer maintenance facility in Scunthorpe.

Tim Doggett, distribution director, said, “We are experiencing an increased demand for our services across all our industry sectors, from bulk food, powder and fuel distribution through to specialist silo evacuations.

“The investment in these new trailers demonstrates our commitment to increasing our presence in the market, alongside continuing to provide high levels of service.
