Heathrow Airport has recently ordered trailers from Cartwright in order to meet its current diverse operational requirements.
The trailers are being used by the Heathrow Consolidation Centre which manages Retail deliveries across the airport. The airport Retail team has ordered:
- 13.6 metre straight frame tandem axle semi-trailer box vans with 26 pallet specification
- 10.6 metres urban single axle frame single axle trailers with a tail-lift
- 10.6 metre straight frame single axle semi-trailer refrigerated box vans with rear command steer
The trailers feature livery showcasing Heathrow Airport’s commitment to reducing emissions, together with the Heathrow Employment & Skills Academy and Rewards loyalty programme.
The Heathrow team required a trailer manufacturer that could offer a range of products to meet its diverse specification requirements as well as to provide manoeuvrability in operation with the facility of a rear steer.
Rachel Martin, Senior Account Manager- Retail Logistics for Commercial at Heathrow Airport commented:
“Heathrow spends over £1.5 billion annually with over 1,200 suppliers from around the UK – and we are proud to partner with such a well-established business on our latest fleet upgrade.
“With a shared passion for innovation and British ingenuity, Cartwright is a perfect fit and we look forward to rolling out their trailers across the airport.”
