Newport-based family business Brace’s Bakery has added Cartwright trailers to its vehicle fleet.

The new Cartwright trailers will join Brace’s Bakery’s existing large fleet of tractors, trailers and rigids. The trailers will be used for trunking bread, particularly deliveries to London and the East Midlands, as well as local retailers and third-party suppliers.

The additions are part of the bakery’s plans to double the size of its product ranges in the future and provide a greater variety of products to consumers.

The bakery said its drivers described the trailers as the “best they’ve ever had”.

“This is our first order from Cartwright, although we have rented trailers in the past,” said Jason Salter, head of transport and distribution at Brace’s Bakery.

“The trailers include a sliding deck, as well as a tail-lift, to reduce the damage previously experienced with column tail-lifts in loading bays. The tail-lifts are twice as fast as the old column tail-lifts and the time-saving is phenomenal.

 “The build and paint quality is very high compared to the other trailers that I have seen over the past five years from other manufacturers.  We are a very happy customer.”
