Each of the new trailers has a fixed deck and a three-metre internal lifting platform at the rear of the trailer. Additional features include a new phenolic floor, Cartwright’s front aerodynamics and LED strip lighting.
Cartwright says the emphasis has been on providing a safer environment for loading and unloading, and adds that the trailers are also equipped with telematics and a camera directed at the lifting deck platform at the rear of the trailer, for live monitoring of loading and unloading.
Since the overall height of the trailer was critical r for deliveries where access can be difficult, Cartwright engineered a very low step frame platform with a rear loading height of 850mm, coupled with a high lift suspension.
“We have been delighted with the build quality from Cartwright which has been excellent,” confirms Stephen Bruce, operations director at G Plan.
“We have used Ryder for many years and it was through them that we met Cartwright. In the end Cartwright offered the best solution for the best price.”
