The M62 / M18 / A1 / M1 'triangle' has a lot of Stobarts on it due to the fact they are Tesco's transport partner (for now). As they are only wrapping the hard side temp control trailers for s/l then the doncaster area may be your best chance as that is where the chill warehouse is!

Just an idea.
The weak conform, the strong survive.

Anyone seen the one delivering the new Stobart advertisment boards, post pads and corner flags ?? Seems it's got lost and didn't deliver in time for round one :biggrin:

I saw two on Friday, M62 West Bound nr Birchwood (Warrington). I was going opposite way so didnt get pic or even which club it was. That was mid-morning. Then saw another around 4.30 on M60 at the Prestwich junction - that was promoting Hull FC.`

This will be a hot spot area just like Middleton nr Manchester

But these vehicles go all over the country delivering, some through the night down to London regions and back up north early morning
The main issue at present is Stobart can only do the livery on 5 a week, so we're a few months off before all 100 trailers are on the road

I was hoping this would count as the Bradford lorry...
Posted Image
But then I finally saw one on my way home last night, a Widnes lorry. It was heading westbound as I was heading east on the M62 just on the Pennine border.

So I was satisfied with my one cherry popping spot.

Until this morning, when going to work, probably around junction 18-19 I saw a St Helens lorry on the M62 heading the opposite way to me.

Yay, you wait ages for one and two come along within 24 hours.

But there's more, barely had I time to make the mental tick when a Bradford lorry followed barely 2 or 3 minutes later.

Even in morning motorway light they are easy to spot.

:smile:

That'll do pig, that'll do.

Am sat on a National Express coach from London to Leeds - currently at Leicestershire and have passed 3 Stobart trucks, none of which bear the slightest mention of rugby league.
Well done everybody.

Friday coming home we went past the Bulls wagon (again? I dunno how many are out there).

For those who care I can confirm Elima is on the back.

Surely the RFL should of insited that all the trucks should either display full super league images or at the very least partial images of super league I.e on the back doors or the cabs.

Well then, if you haven`t seen any in a 3 hour journey away from the RFL heartlands then its obviously massively failed. Might as well paint over them all with adverts for Hula Hoops.

Now standing at 5 Stobart wagons with no mention of RL and just one with any SL gubbins on it.
Am at Sheffield so hopefully more in the heartlands.

Stobart have 3500 plus trailers out on the road..... Remember not all have been done yet with the sponsorship deal
So 1 in 350 is your chance of seeing one Posted Image


Also, it's only on the chilled trailers....some people want everything.

Just seen a Leeds and Wigan one on the M62 on the way over to Castleford.

The Leeds lorry was leading until it didn't quite grasp the sliding lanes maneuver, thus allowing the Wigan lorry to exert full speed and pass by on the outside :biggrin:

Yes. They should also have 'insisted' that Stobart paid them £4m.
