Evri is currently taking delivery of 168 articulated box vans from Tiger Trailers to support the opening of its largest delivery hub in Europe.
Tiger worked closely with the former Hermes business to ensure the 4.6m high box van trailers were manufactured to bespoke specifications, as it gears up to sort three million parcels every day during the peak season at its Colossus superhub in Barnsley.
The trailers are a straight-frame design and include Tiger specific design components for strength and durability, including 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, 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.
David Landy, Evri’s head of fleet, said: “It has been great to work with the Tiger Team again and see our initial discussions around specification become realised.
“This will ensure that our ‘in service’ is simplified in order to maintain the trailers more quickly and efficiently.”
Evri said it will have received all 168 vans in time for Black Friday.
