Each of the teams has a dedicated Eddie Stobart trailer design, with an all-team captains’ line up making up the 15 new designs for the Stobart Super League 2012 fleet of 100 trucks.

It was announced last week that Stobart Group has partnered with the RFL in a pioneering cross-marketing deal to secure title naming rights to the Super League.

Speaking to Tachoblog, Stobart Group CEO Andrew Tinkler said, “Stobart Group wishes each of the 14 teams competing in the Stobart Super League 2012 the very best of luck.

“We can’t wait to get started and for our new branded trailers to hit the road.”

And here are the Eddie Stobart trucks in formation outside Old Trafford.
