We are delighted to be supplying Downton with one
of the first deliveries of the new Tiger trailers!
The Gloucestershire based logistics provider
is investing in
a total of 60 curtain trailers for use in its network. the high
specification trailers have been designed to be used for a range
of work, including paper, glass and brewery distribution.
This requirement has led to Tiger’s engineering team designing
a trailer to meet Downton’s exacting requirements, that will suit
its various operations. The 13.7 metre curtainsided clearspan
trailers have a number of unique features. This is in addition to
Tiger’s EN 12642XL
The trailers include the optional Tiger 'over chassis beam' floor
design, providing a perfectly flat floor surface. By allowing
the floor to sit above the chassis I beam, it improves weather
proofing and contributes towards greater health and safety.
Other features include double skinned front bulkhead and a
special load resistant system that will suit both brewery and
The trailers also have Tiger’s 'paint free' option, which features
a fully galvanised chassis and body, with pre-impregnated front
Tiger airfoil and rear doors.

Trailers. From initial meetings with the Tiger Team, through to

making the decision to be one of the first customers for this new
UK manufacturer, and we wish them every future success."

supplying Downton with some of the first Tiger Trailers. Their
