Toledo-based Ervin Equipment has purchased 2,000 pre-owned Wabash Duraplate trailers from JB Hunt Transport, with a view to selling them on through its network of 12 locations.
JB Hunt will deliver the 2,000 units to multiple locations across Ervin Equipment’s network across North America.
Jeff Weber, Ervin’s vice president of sales and marketing, said that because Ervin can store equipment in or close to customers’ facilities, the Wabash trailers will be a staple in a variety of storage and basic cartage applications for manufacturers, particularly those that perform short, regional hauls. “It has become difficult to obtain pre-owned equipment in and around a desired location in a short period of time, but our company was founded to address these glitches,” he said.
Prior to selling any of the trailers, Ervin will carry out checks to ensure they exceed all federal requirements for equipment running in the US.
