The pillarless curtainsiders feature a rear roof air diffuser, flush rear doors for functionality and aesthetics, full LED lighting, a premium load securing system, as well as providing maximum body access.

Heavily focused on improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions from their vehicles, Lawrence David and Knowles Transport also worked together on innovations for fuel saving and environmental benefits.

Alex Knowles, Knowles Transport MD, said: “Our strong relationship with Lawrence David which has been developed over many years is a testament to their strong product offering.

“We are excited to be unveiling our new livery on the new trailers, which closely follow the purchase of 50 new Volvo FH460 Turbo Compound vehicles which were made to support our continued expansion and recent diversification.

“This latest investment has been made to prepare for further growth after experiencing a significant expansion in recent times and to support our fleet replacement programme.”
