153 new trailers were secured with a multi-million pound investment for Carlsberg.
The new trailers are being supplied by the Cartwright Group and are fitted with front and rear air management equipment, which is expected to deliver significant operational efficiencies, as well as several features to improve safety and security of the loads.
Norbert Dentressangle manages all of Carlsberg’s UK primary distribution, from the flow of materials to finished products into and out of the Carlsberg brewery in Northampton.
