News

With discrete contracts and long-standing customers, news from Jack Richards & Son can seem a little slow by comparison with some of the ‘noisier’ companies in our industry. Traditionally, we don’t like to shout about our own achievements, preferring to keep our successes between ourselves and the customers who inspire us to achieve them. However, recent points of note are shown below for the sake of general information:

Jack Richards Palletways - Better for longer

We are please to announce the arrival of our new 15.6 metre mega volume double deck trailer. The trailer is a full 2 metres longer and has been designed specifically for us by trailer manufacturer Lawrence David.  The spec includes an on-board weighing system and aerodynamic design along with lower rolling resistance tyres to minimise our carbon foot print and reduce fuel consumption. To ensure that the trailer is suitable for the UK road network, the rear wheels also self steer, allowing the trailer to have a tighter turning circle than a conventional trailer.

By dedicating the trailer for our Palletways night trunk, we can further reduce our impact on the environment by carrying an extra 8 pallets of freight per journey which will save up to 200 journeys per year.
