Logistics experts the Transland Group have announced the purchase of eight new bespoke trailers for its services to and from Ireland.

The Irish Ministry of Transport recently introduced new regulations on the height limit of 4.65m for trailers entering the country, as opposed to the standard 4.8m throughout the UK. This has limited many logistics firms to single-deck trailers.

Transland, network member of Palletways which has a total of over 300 depots and 13 hubs across Europe, have become the first company to react to the new regulations, with the introduction of eight made-to-measure double-deck trailers. Working with leading trailer manufacturer Lawrence David, Transland’s latest editions have been designed to offer maximum flexibility for loading and greater fuel efficiency, while also incorporating the latest health and safety guidelines.

Kelvin Jones, Business Development Director at Transland International, said: “The introduction of these bespoke double-decker trailers means that we offer greater efficiency to businesses throughout Ireland compared to any other pallet network. While the new legislation was a contentious point in the industry, we reacted quickly to ensure our customers continue to enjoy the highest level of service whilst still being competitive”.

Transland is one of over 100 members in the Palletways UK network – Europe’s largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network. The UK has its national hub in Lichfield, Staffordshire, and regional hubs in London, Leeds and Edinburgh. It offers a range of express distribution services for small consignments of palletised freight across the UK. In total Palletways handles nearly 30,000 pallets daily across all its operations.
