Hermes buys more double-decker trailers from Don-Bur
Hermes has acquired 32 Don-Bur double-deck trailers – and the company believes their increased capacity will help to cut the number of miles its drivers travel by 1.5 million a year.
The new double-deckers hold 33% more than a standard trailer and 12% more than Hermes’ existing double-deckers.
The trailers will be operating from Hermes’ hubs in Warrington and Rugby, while they have also been designed to be ferry-safe, which means they don’t need to have a tractor unit attached to them on a ferry for stability.
Jon Ormond, Operations Director – Hubs & Depots at Hermes, said: “After extensive research exploring the best type of trailer for a number of our most travelled routes, we opted to modernise our fleet with a bespoke model from Don-Bur, the leaders in this field. Our team worked closely with theirs in true partnership and the result is leading edge designed trailers with unrivalled safety features, that look fantastic on the roads.”
