Leading trailer and commercial vehicle body manufacturer, the Cartwright Group has supplied Palletline member Alan R Jones with a curtainsider with special livery supporting the pallet network’s environmental message.
Alan R Jones, based in Newport, has been using Cartwright’s trailer manufacturing capabilities and Cartwright Finance Sales for some time now. The 50-year-old company which specialises in transport, distribution and warehousing, was one of the early members of Palletline, the network freight distribution company.
Alan R Jones runs a fleet of 34 vehicles and trailers made up of double decks, straight frames and tankers, providing pallet delivery throughout the UK and Europe.
The new step frame fixed second deck trailer from Cartwright features new wrap round curtains, livery and is manufactured to the ENXL 12642 standard.
Ray Clegg, Managing Director of Alan R Jones commented: “Pallet delivery is a substantial part of our business.
“The new curtainsider trailer has new livery on the curtains highlighting Palletline’s new environmental message which it will be promoting this year.
“We are the first Palletline member to have this new livery on our trucks and we are delighted about that.
“We are very happy with Cartwright and have a very good relationship with them. We are not only a customer for their trailers, we also use Cartwright Finance for our fixed cost solution.”
“The quality of their trailers is very good,” he said.
Graham Leitch, Group Managing Director of Palletline added, “We are delighted that our long-standing member Alan R Jones has welcomed our new multi-hub livery, which delivers a message to our mutual customers that the Palletline model not only delivers a high quality, highly efficient network freight service, but through our multi-hub strategy we also deliver less CO2, making us the carrier of choice for many environmentally aware clients”.
Palletline will be rolling out the new green vehicle design across the UK over the coming months.
