Tiger Trailers B&M Fixed Double Deck 2020

Variety retailer B&M has taken delivery of 21 straightframe fixed double deck wedge vans from Tiger Trailers.

The trailers equip the retailer with the ability to carry 52 pallets by utilising the full length of the lower deck.

The incorporation of an integrated twin-tier tail lift from Dhollandia enables efficient deliveries to be made directly from B&M’s widespread distribution centres - which the company describes as ‘the cogs that keep the wheels turning’ - to its nationwide stores.

The customer-specific aperture dimensions allow the bottom deck to be loaded without moving the tail lift, which forms the upper rear closure.

The double deck trailers’ wedge design provides an operator loading height at the rear of 1917mm, which tapers towards the front of the vehicle. The rear frame assembly is reinforced at the bottom to protect against damage from loading bays, and Tiger Trailers’ ‘captive rave’ load securing and restraint system is incorporated inside for enhanced efficiency along with added operator safety.

Tiger Trailers has supplied B&M with over 400 trailers during a close relationship spanning more than five years.

An array of Tiger Trailers Deck Pod loading bays is in operation at B&M's largest warehousing and distribution site in Bedford.

Commented Tiger Trailers sales director Darren Holland: “Tiger have worked closely with the B&M logistics & warehousing teams since 2014. During this time we are extremely pleased that we have developed both the loading and transport solutions to the degree that is evident today. To be able to offer this unique level of service to their operation is very important to us, which we pride ourselves on.”
