Jigsaw Solutions, the eight-strong haulier network, has added six Cartwright double-deck trailers to the fleet servicing its contract with white goods manufacturer Indesit.
Moving goods from Indesit’s central distribution centre in Raunds, Northants, to six home delivery satellite warehouses around the UK, Jigsaw estimates it will save 340,000 road miles each year as a result of the investment – equivalent to 25 vehicle journeys a week.
“These new trailers represent a significant investment by our business and will enhance our ability to provide a highly efficient, sustainable and dedicated service to Indesit,” says Andy Humpherson, MD at Jigsaw Solutions.
“Double-decker trailers allow us to transport the maximum amount of goods while retaining flexibility to accommodate a variety of loads. The reduction in vehicle movements and road miles was central to our business case.”
Jigsaw has moved goods for Indesit for five years, and it is currently part way through its second contract with the firm.
