AW Jenkinson have struck a deal for 110 STAS moving-floor trailers to service their biomass contracts.
The multi-million pound deal includes a mix of 92m3 and 100m3 tri-axle trailers, all due to be delivered this year. David Cox, MD — Stobart Fleet division, said the Stobart allocation will be used across the Stobart Biomass division for the transportation of biomass fuel and bulk goods.
"We've already taken delivery of 30 trailers; 10 of which are slightly taller than normal and give us around 20m3 extra volume. This increased-capacity trailer will be used across contracts where the vehicles are carrying lightweight loose product," he said.
Graham Macmillan, the aftermarket director for Clitheroe-based Steadplan, the UK agent for Belgian manufacturer STAS, said it is the biggest deal for moving-floors in STAS's history. "Both Stobart and Jenkinson have bought the trailer because of its quality, the residual values, and because we were prepared to meet their requirements," he said.
This year, Steadplan has sold more than 200 moving-floor trailers as more biomass contracts become available, compared to just 70 last year. "A lot of that is down to taking on a dedicated sales manager, Dan Edwards. It has given us more focus on sales," he added.
