ALE has unveiled a new fleet of trailers that can be widened from 3.6 metres to 4.3 metres while loaded – the only trailers of their kind in the UK. The company designed the trailers in collaboration with manufacturer Goldhofer and has purchased 50 axles lines to replace its existing trailer fleet. The announcement follows the launch last year of ALE’s new Trojan heavy haulage tractor. “We have invested heavily in pulling power and now we need to make sure our trailers are updated and responding to the challenges we’re facing,” explains ALE’s senior sales manager, Matt Rushton. “Widening trailers are going to be the next phase of our progression in the UK heavy transport market.”
