GBA to buy 20 heavy duty trailers

Preston-based logistics specialist GBA Services has agreed a deal to purchase 20 new heavy duty trailers.

The order includes 10 quantities of 4,800mm and 4,200mm trailers each, featuring clearspan, pillarless roof designs, designed and built by Tiger Trailers of Cheshire.

The new additions will bolster the services offered by GBA, which provides pan-European logistics by road, air and sea, together with warehousing facilities.

David Birkbeck, managing director of GBA Services, said: “We look forward to a fruitful partnership with Tiger Trailers. They gave us a VIP tour of the factory to see the state-of-the-art facility and high-class standard that goes into making their trailers great and took delivery of our twenty-truck order.”

Tom Stott, technical sales manager of Tiger Trailers, said: “We are delighted to have made this first step in a hopefully enduring relationship of contributing to their continued expansion and success as a logistics specialist that provides an impressive portfolio of time-critical, temperature-controlled, hazardous freight and on occasion fascinating high-security solutions throughout Europe.”
