1 Million Miles for the largest trailer in the UK

November 2nd, 2016

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
