As well as the potential to cut costs and emissions on retail deliveries by up to 50%, double deck trailers offer additional volumetric and cost benefits on the back-fill of empties and returns to DCs and recycling centres.

Despite the potential savings, double deckers are still very little used on secondary distribution.

Transdek supplies a range of technologies to enable effective double decking direct to retail outlets. We have worked with many retailers to facilitate enhanced efficiencies on last-mile deliveries to stores through a range of bespoke solutions, including:

Double deck trailer access adaptations
  •   Low-height, urban double deck trailers
  •   Rapid-install double deck lifts
  •   Specialist double deck taillifts – for highstreet unloading
  •   Urban consolidation centres
