BOC invests in Suttons partnership with Suttons Tankers with new pintle trailers

BOC has recently invested in its longstanding partnership with Suttons Tankers and, as part of its commitment to safety, has introduced 10 new pintle trailers to its gas cylinders fleet.

With safety as a key priority, the company said these improvements benefit its skilled pool of drivers on the contract and contribute to the safe and efficient delivery of products for BOC.

The new pintle trailers, designed by Tiger Trailers, feature better positioning of the ADR marker boards which removes risk of them snagging on the service lines, according to the organisation. The headboard marker lights have also been repositioned on these trailers, removing the mirror’s reflection.

There is a new storage solution on the centre aisle gate which removes the need for straps to be used for securing the gate when not in use, as well as removing the need to lift and twist the gate when removing and placing in the storage position, BOC went on to say.

“The safety of our drivers at Suttons is always at the forefront of our decisions. That’s why we took feedback from our driver workforce and worked with BOC and Tiger Trailers on rolling out these new and improved safety features,” added the firm.

“With the new trailers coming into the operation, Suttons looks forward to supporting the drivers on the BOC contract to continue to deliver this essential product in the safest possible manner.”
