Ryder supplies trailers to Topps Tiles

Ryder has become the sole trailer supplier to Topps Tiles, UK tile specialist retailer.
The contract has commenced with Ryder supplying 17 trailers, which herald the introduction of Topps Tiles’ new livery.

The 17 SDC curtainsiders are fitted with Moffett Mounty forklifts. A further 10 trailers will be renewed by Ryder later in the year.

Kevin Smith, Topps Tiles national transport manager, said: “We went through a rigorous tender process and were looking for a partner who understood our business culture and operational demands. Ryder was the perfect fit and we could see that we could develop a long-term relationship. Innovation and continuous improvement is key to us and we saw Ryder as an innovative leader in its industry.”

Topps Tiles’ fleet operates from a distribution centre in Leicester, which serves more than 340 stores via six outbases (Mossend, Widnes, Doncaster, Thurrock, Greenford and Portbury) managed by Wincanton.

Robin White, Ryder sales and marketing director, adds: “Topps Tiles is a market-leader in its sector. At Ryder, we understand how important it is to such a business that its supplier partners understand and appreciate its culture, its operational demands, and match its progress. We look forward to extending our relationship with Topps Tiles.”
