Flogas, the leading supplier of LPG, Propane and Butane to both households and businesses in the UK, have ordered five new tri-axle semi-trailers from Cartwright.
A long-term customer of Cartwright, the company, which has its main distribution center in Leicester, delivers liquid petroleum gas, Propane and Butane across the country, either in bottled gas or bulk supply. Cartwright has extensive experience of manufacturing trailers for companies in the gas bottle distribution sector, which is a very specialist industry as the operation involved in collecting and delivering gas bottles is very labour intensive with a high priority on safety of operation and load retention. Gas bottles come in varying sizes and can weigh up to 47 kilos.
Cartwright’s bespoke design, specifically for the Flogas logistics operation, enables the company to have a multi-functional load with several different configurations allowing the collection of the empty gas bottles and drop off the full bottles in a time efficient and safe manner with the bottles safely secured and stowed when on the trailer.
Jason Lynch, Purchasing Manager at Flogas commented: “The trailers are exceptional. There is no question about it. With Cartwright they get it right first time. It’s a great trailer.”
