Clugston Distribution Services invests £500k in further fleet growth

Clugston Distribution Services has invested almost £500,000 in further expanding its fleet of flatbed trailers.

The company has purchased an additional 20 new flatbed trailers, 15 of which are extendable as well as five standard flatbed trailers.

Clugston’s new trailers are individually designed for the transportation of various products up to 22 metres in length.

The investment comes following a six-figure upgrade to the firm’s truck and trailer maintenance facility in Scunthorpe.

Tim Doggett, distribution director, said: “We are experiencing an increased demand for our services across all our industry sectors, from bulk food, powder and fuel distribution through to specialist silo evacuations.

“With an incredible 80 years’ experience in the flatbed sector, the investment in these new trailers demonstrates our commitment to increasing our presence in the market, alongside continuing to provide high levels of service.

“In total, over the course of the last three years, we have invested nearly two million in improving services for our customers.”
