  • 15 new curtainsiders signal Ryder’s first order from Tiger Trailers
  • Short lead-time and delivery programme key to new business win
  • Tiger described by Ryder as ‘major player’ in UK trailer manufacturing

Ryder, a leading independent provider of commercial vehicle contract hire, rental, and maintenance in the UK, has taken its first delivery from Tiger Trailers. The 15 curtainsider trailers are for Woodland Group, one of the largest, independent logistics companies in the UK.

Tiger Trailer’s ability to produce a bespoke product against a short lead-time – with specification amendments midway through the build programme – was key to Ryder placing the order.

“Tiger Trailers is now a major player in the fleet sector and able to produce a wide range of trailers, and, crucially, has proven they can deliver large orders fast,” said Ryder’s Paul Eve, Area Sales Manager for London & South East.

The 15 new 13.6m trailers are delivered to Ryder’s long-standing customer, Woodland Group, with all but seven units featuring Anteo tuck-away tail-lifts. The trailer design meets Woodland’s stringent overall and side aperture height restrictions. All trailers are delivered in the global supply-chain management company’s own livery.

“Woodland’s specification requirements were exact and specialist but Tiger simply dealt with it with no fuss. Importantly, we were able to deliver to Woodland in line with expectations. This flexible approach in a supplier relationship is very important to us,” Paul Eve said.
