Suttons, a leading supplier of global logistics solutions, is continuing its investment in more new equipment with a major order for UK trailers.

This includes £500, 000 on 35 new, slope frame ISO skeletal trailers from UK manufacturer Dennison and a further £300, 000 in refurbishing 55 skeletal trailers.
The new trailers will be delivered in September and will operate in the UK on Suttons international business moving tank containers to and from UK ports and railheads and making customer deliveries.
Earlier this year the company, which is a specialist in moving bulk liquids and chemicals around the world, invested £9.5m in new tanks, the first of which have just been delivered.
Andrew Palmer, group managing director of Suttons, said "This is another significant investment in new equipment as the company continues to win new business and grow.
