Earl Transport’s long-term partnership with TIP grows a treat 23 August 2021

East Lancashire haulier Earl Transport has continued its long association with TIP Trailer Services with the recent arrival of 14 new SDC 4.2m curtain-sided trailers that have been supplied by TIP on a five-year leasing arrangement, which also includes repair and maintenance cover for the duration of the deal.

All 14 trailers are working on a pet food contract from customer Pets Choice.

Peter Hughes, managing director, Earl Transport, said: “As part of our ongoing long-term contract with Pets Choice, it approached us to add extra trailers to its distribution fleet to cope with the significant upturn in business over the last 12 months.”

The relationship between TIP and Earl Transport goes back at least 20 years, not just with TIP but originally with the Bell Trailers business which subsequently became part of the TIP organisation in 2015.

The new trailers will be operating out of the main Pets Choice distribution centre in Blackburn, Lancashire and are expected to cover approximately 80,000 miles per annum over their five-year working life.

“With over 20 years’ experience of their business, we are able to get closely involved with Earl Transport’s operation as it expands its business. These latest trailers, in really striking new liveries, reflect the strength of the three-party relationship between us, Earl Transport and Pets Choice, which has ensured that Pets Choice are able to operate their trailers in a manner that meets the needs of its specific operation,” said Mike Furnival, managing director, TIP Trailer Services UK&I.
