Cutting-edge equipment for overnight services
Viamaster have put into service two new LST “Super” trailers to maintain our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and increasing fleet efficiencies.
The trailers operate as part of the 10 year Department for Transport (DfT) trial of longer semi-trailers (LSTs), which hopes to provide significant economic and environmental benefits to the UK. The operational trial is a real opportunity for industry to show the benefits these trailers can bring to the UK and is expected to save over 3,000 tonnes of CO2 over 10 years. The longer 15.65 metre semi-trailers must operate within the UK’s existing domestic weight limit (44 tonnes for vehicles of 6 axles).
Viamaster use the trailers as part of its overnight service portfolio with leading pallet network Palletforce and transport co-operative Partnerlink, both companies in which Viamaster have a shareholding.
