Tinsley Bridge and SOMI demonstrated their new and highly innovative trailer at the recent UK Commercial Vehicle Show.
Held at the NEC in Birmingham in April, the Commercial Vehicle Show is the primary sourcing and selling opportunity for the entire UK road freight transport and logistics industry.
SOMI, short for ‘Same Outside More Inside’, has developed a unique trailer design that uses patented technologies and advanced engineering to create 31% additional load capacity, without adding to the overall dimensions of a standard trailer. Tinsley Bridge has partnered with SOMI to manufacture and install the unique load management system which significantly reduces the cost of road transport, allows operators to reduce the number of journeys and make substantial savings on fuel costs.
Pauline Dawes, Managing Director of SOMI Trailers, said: “The response of potential customers at the CV Show was fantastic and we have a lot of interest from operators. The SOMI trailer has been designed to be compatible with existing logistical and UK infrastructures and could revolutionise the freight industry as a whole, particularly the transport of food, by removing 1 in 4 of all trucks from UK roads and saving operators £100,000 a year. With a 4m high trailer it delivers these same benefits in Europe where double deck trailers are not allowed.”
