Goldstar Heathrow has ordered 37 trailers from Cartwright - its first major order with the commercial vehicle body and trailer manufacturer.
The order from the airfreight logistics company for fridges, box vans and curtainsiders trailers that were specified with specialised roller bed floor systems for aircraft containers followed a tender process involving three trailer manufacturers.
It also included a mix of standard fridge trailers, standard curtainsiders and step frame double deck curtainsiders.
Charlie Fulk, director of Goldstar Heathrow, said: “We have been reviewing our vehicle fleet requirements and going through a replacement programme and the latest part of this process was to replenish our trailer fleet which totals just over 100.
“We were pleased with our discussions with Cartwright and felt we could develop a long-term relationship with them.
"We visited their headquarters for a factory tour and also spoke to some of their customers. The feedback was good.
"They said they would deliver in 12 weeks and the trailers were all delivered virtually on schedule which was very impressive.”
