Transport supplier Fraikin has signed a new full-service contract hire deal with insulation and drywall systems distributor Belgrade Insulations.
The seven-year agreement sees Fraikin supply Belgrade with an additional two 26-tonne DAF curtainside trucks, each with a truck-mounted forklift located at the rear to facilitate easy loading and unloading in any location. Both vehicles have been accredited for the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) to maintain the highest levels of safety.
To maximise safety on the road, the vehicles are supplied with an Aztec window on the passenger side to give drivers improved blind-spot visibility. They also include both reversing and near-side cameras – a new feature for Belgrade Insulations’ vehicles – to ensure cyclists and pedestrians are in full view of the driver.
Belgrade Insulations managing director Alex Khan, says: “We’ve worked with a number of contract hire providers and have often found they’re unable to deliver on their promises. Contract hire allows us to focus on our core business activities, safe in the knowledge that a supplier with a strong industry pedigree is ensuring our vehicles are well maintained, efficient and fully compliant. Fraikin very quickly got a firm grasp of how we work, so we hope this will be the start of a long business relationship.”
