Tuffnells is a parcel delivery company that has 33 depots spread across the UK and specialises in large, long, and heavy parcels. The firm recently ordered 220 new SDC Boxvan and Curtainsider trailers, more than half of which are already in operation. The new trailers were acquired from TIP Trailer Services and will join a fleet of more than 1,110 vehicles, serving Tuffnells customers in the UK as well as internationally.


“Second To None”

“We are extremely pleased with the roll-out of our fleet renewal programme, which will undoubtedly strengthen Tuffnells’ service,” says Tuffnells Services Director Simon Parsons. “TIP has made the whole process very straightforward and the quality of SDC’s product is second to none, providing greater flexibility and more efficiency in our operations for many years to come.”


SDC Boxvan & Curtainsider Trailers

Tuffnells chose SDC’s BRP Boxvan trailer as its primary model. The trailer features an EN 12642-XL-compliant body with a galvanized steel-reinforced floor, roller shutter doors, several load-securing options, steps for easier driver access, interior lighting, and an audible warning system for added safety. SDC also offers aluminium, double-deck, and urban box vans.

SDC’s base Curtainsider trailer is built with high-tensile steel and, like the Boxvan, features EN 12642-XL-compliant bodywork. It features a range of load restraint options, ISO-compliant flooring, a stainless-steel coupling box, front and rear ratchet tensioners, and a generally lightweight design that increases payload and improves fuel efficiency. Other SDC curtainside trailers include the Freespan, Double Deck, Urban, Mega, Chipliner, Coilwell, Sliding Body, Euroliner, and Insuliner, as well as the Longer Semi Trailer and Curtain-Side Machine Carrier.
