Reed Boardall rolls out 50 new trucks
9:26am Thursday 10th October 2013 in Business news
FROZEN food distributor Reed Boardall has invested in 50 new trucks to replenish its fleet of 170 vehicles.
The acquisition of the new Volvo FH tractors by the Boroughbridge business forms part of a policy aimed at ensuring the entire fleet is fewer than three years old.
The new trucks will be working with Reed Boardall’s 230 refrigerated semi-trailers, which includes around 55 double-deck trailers.
Group chief executive Keith Boardall said: “Even in the current economic climate, where all investment has to be minutely considered, we are committed to a long-term future, and that means maintaining our unrivalled performance levels.
“Constantly renewing our vehicles is part of that. It is important to keep our fleet as new, reliable and technologically advanced as possible, and never more than three years old.”
Reed Boardall stores and delivers frozen foods from manufacturers across Britain, and Europe, handling more than 11,000 pallets per day, containing foods worth up to £5 million.
