UK-based BJS Storage & Distribution has ordered 50 curtain-siders trailers on a new contract hire deal with US commercial fleet management company Ryder.
The new tri-axle trailers will be built by Yorkshire-based Montracon and will replace older trailers in BJS’ 120-strong trailer fleet.
“As our business expands it is essential to have modern high specification equipment in the fleet to ensure we can always meet customer requirements,” said BJS Director, Richard Hall.
“Our trucks operate nationally and as our business continues to grow it was becoming increasing important to have a first class nationwide breakdown and repair solution in place.
“Partnering with Ryder was a logical step as it can provide unrivalled mobile trailer repair and maintenance solutions through Bullwell Trailer Solutions, which is part of the Ryder group.”
“With one of the largest rental and contract hire trailer fleets in the UK, we are witnessing an increasing number of logistics firms and haulage contractors looking to partner with us on the supply of new trailers. This not only gives them access to the latest specifications and technology but also leading edge nationwide servicing, repair and breakdown support,” said Ryder Sales and Marketing Director, Robin White.
