As part of our on-going investment in the latest technology and equipment 2 new 18t Iveco Euro Cargo’s have joined the Elddis fleet this month. They will operate as part of our radial distribution network with one based at our new facility in Heywood and one at our Worksop depot.
A fantastic example of Elddis innovation and custome collaboration, the biggest curtain sided trailer in the UK became the first Long Semi Trailer to reach 1 million miles. Running on a dedicated customer contract the trailer, the outfit has averaged over 600 miles per day for the 1645 days it has been on fleet, that is 1000km everyday for four and a half years, and it is still going strong. The trailer has a massive 150 cubic metres of loading space, which over 60% more than a standard 4.2m trailer, so it may also be the greenest truck on the UK roads
