The latest additions to the Tuffnells fleet are all based on SDC chassis, whilst fleet additions later in the year will comprise both SDC and Don-Bur brands.
In addition to the fleet acquisitions, TIP has also handled a major de-fleet programme for Tuffnells, disposing of older trailers, resulting in further cost-saving and fleet efficiencies for the business.
The Tuffnells/TIP relationship is based on a partnership that began four years ago when TIP first took over the maintenance of their trailer and drawbar fleet. TIP subsequently embarked on a programme to update fleet livery and support promotion of the refreshed Tuffnells brand.
The new trailers, featuring updated livery, will be rolled out across all Tuffnells’ 33 depots nationwide.
Tuffnells services director Simon Parsons commented: “It is vital that we continue to invest in our fleet in order to deliver the best possible service for our customers. Our rolling upgrade plan is well under way, and our relationship with TIP has been integral to this, helping to deliver the fleet we need for the future.”
