APC Overnight gets permission for 10 more longer semi-trailers

  • 28 November 2013
  • By Ashleigh Wight

APC Overnight has been allocated 10 more 15.65m longer semi-trailers (LSTs) as part of the Department for Transport (DfT) trial.

The trailers will be built by Cartwright and follows the parcel delivery network’s initial allocation of four LSTs last year, which were put into operation at its sites in Bellshill, Telford, Thetford and Northampton.

The additional trailers are due to be put into operation over the next six months and will feature an aerodynamic front to both increase capacity and reduce wind drag.

Head of operations Brian McCarthy said: “Feedback from those depots to have trialled our initial allocation earlier this year has been extremely positive, and we look forward to allowing more of our depots to reap the same benefits when we take delivery of the longer vehicles over the coming months.”

The DfT relaunched the trial earlier this year to allow operators to dictate whether they wanted to run the 14.6m or 15.65m trailer variation.
