J S Burgess manufacture thousands of stillages per year with deliveries going all over the UK & Eire as well as Europe.
We use a variety of well regarded local and national carriers to deliver our range of trollies, stillages and glass handling A-Frames on time. Alternatively, we can work with your logistics department to transport stillages using your own vehicles.
Types of Trailer for Stillage Delivery
Our team has enormous logistical experience and can help advise on transport systems to get stillages to your site on time. Here are some of the common types of trailer that are used:
Stepped Flat Bed or Step Deck Trailer
Step deck trailers allow J S Burgess to gain additional height which means that more stillages can be loaded on to wagon which results in lower transport costs for the customer. The above image shows a computer model of a step deck trailer loaded with extrusion stillages which the design team occasionally use to calculate the maximum loading and height for a given trailer.
Flat Bed Trailer
Flat Bed Trailers are used when additional height capacity is not used. Typically stillages are loaded by Burgess employees and strapped down by the haulage company.
If you have your own curtain side wagons, these can be loaded by our skilled FLT operatives.
