Tiger trailers becomes breadwinner


Tiger Trailers will provide 38 rigid box vans to Britain’s largest bakery brand, joining its nationwide fleet of vehicles delivering fresh bread across the country.

British bakery, Warburtons, had unique operational requirements, looking for a bespoke, intelligent and ergonomic design to help with its deliveries to more than 18,500 stores daily.

“It has been reassuring to have been involved throughout the design and manufacturing process.,” said Warburtons’ Head of Transport, Steve Gray. “We have taken delivery of 10 of the vans already and are very impressed with the final product.”

Built on 14-tonne DAF chassis from local firm Lancashire DAF, each rigid is fitted with Warburtons’ racking along its sides, along with adjustable centre aisle load bars to suit its loading requirements. The rigids also have crew doors on each side of the body’s rear to expedite the loading process, access to which is covered with a hinged alloy floor section, maximising load capacity.

“At Tiger we are proud to offer competitive lead times and guarantee a premium product without compromising on quality,” said Tiger Trailers’ Technical Sales Manager, Tom Stott. “To have done so for one of Britain’s most-recognisable brands is something to be celebrated and we are hopeful to build on the relationship we have established.”

Ten of Warburtons’ new Tiger rigids, delivered in late 2023, can already be seen out on the roads, operating out of several of its 22 nationwide depots.
