As the UK moves towards the first anniversary of the first Lockdown imposed in March last year, Leeds Trailers has confirmed its strong trading position in West Yorkshire and further afield.
Despite major challenges created by the pandemic, we have strengthened our fleet by 30 percent and continued to trade throughout three periods of National Lockdown.
We have also weathered the “Brexit storm”, despite some challenges with delayed arrival of some component parts from the EU.
Looking back, we are delighted to report that we:
Ø Made substantial investment in our fleet and now have further trailers on order – delivery expected throughout the Spring and Summer.
Ø Expanded our customer base, as a local competitor ceased trading.
Ø Reacted swiftly to customer needs and tried to anticipate demands and requirements.
Ø Ensured that health and safety remained a top priority, complying with Covid regulations at all times.
Leeds Trailers’ MD Neil Martin said, “The industry has undoubtedly had mixed fortunes. Some sectors have fared well – for example, food/drink and construction companies.
“Others have obviously been badly hit – including the hospitality sector where pubs, restaurants and entertainment venues have been forced to close, along with non-essential retail outlets.
“On a more positive note, there has been a marked reduction in traffic volumes on the road and this has improved productivity rates for transport companies.
“Brexit has also been a factor. It’s hard to say whether we have been impacted directly but we have faced delays with component parts for trailers arriving from the EU.”
Looking ahead, Leeds Trailers is hopeful that the economy will continue to pick up as the key milestones on the Government’s road map are achieved.
We continue to invest in our fleet and have new flat trailers on order, with delivery scheduled for next month and into May. We also ordered new box trailers, due into the yard in August/September.
