Growth at Campeys sees 35 new Lawrence David trailers added


North Yorkshire haulier Campeys of Selby has added 35 new high capacity curtainside trailers to its expanding fleet in a bid to meet the increasing demands of its growing customer base and to support new contract wins.

The new Lawrence David trailers have a bespoke specification with 2.9m internal height to ensure maximum load volume and enhance operational efficiency. They are fully pillarless, have flat floors to maximise load fill and incorporate a number of safety features including interior LED lighting and additional access steps.

The new additions now see Campeys, a fourth-generation family business, operate a fleet of 80 units and 140 trailers.

As part of its ongoing growth plans, Campeys – a Palletforce and Transport Association member – has recently gained additional business from a number of customers, including those who manufacture insulation and polystyrene products.

It provides transport from manufacturer to distribution centre and direct to retailers and builders merchants. The new high-volume trailers will allow Campeys to offer enhanced efficiency and help meet its target of reducing road miles and emissions.

Harry Campey, transport manager at Campeys of Selby, said: “We are continuing our growth strategy during 2021 and, as part of that, have added 35 new curtainsiders to handle additional work and allow us to continue to provide the best possible service to our customers.

“We’ve spec’d them to offer both operational efficiency and a number of driver-friendly features. It’s important that we operate a modern fleet to help our drivers carry out their job in the safest way possible.”

Simon Lake, business development manager – rigid and trailer products at Lawrence David, said: “Lawrence David is delighted to be part of Campeys’ continued growth and we congratulate the business for its ongoing success. Having supplied Campeys for over five years, we know their business like they know ours. Combined with our strong residuals, transferrable 10-year warranty and unrivalled group structure and support, Campeys receives the bespoke solution and enjoys the relationships that its business demands.”
