Topps Tiles

Topps Tiles has introduced a new livery onto its fleet, at the same time as signing a sole trailer supplier dealer with Ryder.

The contract commenced with Ryder supplying 17 SDC curtainsiders, fitted with Moffett Mounty forklifts. A further 10 trailers will be renewed by Ryder later in the year.

Kevin Smith, Topps Tiles national transport manager, says: "We went through a rigorous tender process and were looking for a partner who understood our business culture and operational demands. Ryder was the perfect fit."

Topps Tiles’ fleet operates from a distribution centre in Leicester, which serves more than 340 stores via six outbases (Mossend, Widnes, Doncaster, Thurrock, Greenford and Portbury) managed by Wincanton.

"Our vehicles are our billboard, and by far our largest advertising tool, whether travelling on the road network or parked outside our stores, so it is imperative that the livery presents a strong brand image and consistent message," said Sian O’Neill, head of marketing at Topps Tiles.
