Reed Boardall, the Yorkshire-based temperature-controlled logistics business, has invested £2 million in its fleet as part of an ongoing upgrade programme.

The business has augmented its 300-strong trailer fleet with the addition of 23 single deck semi-trailers and seven double deck trailers.

With a total value of £2 million, all the new trailers are equipped with Carrier Vector 1550 or 1950 refrigeration units as well as full satellite tracking to enable constant monitoring of the location and temperature of the vehicles in line with Reed Boardall’s quality control procedures.

Graeme Richardson, managing director of Reed Boardall’s transport division, said: “As a business, we are committed to ensuring that our fleet is as modern and efficient as possible to enable us to provide the best and most competitive service for our customers, consequently, all of our trailers are less than five years old and our tractors are under three years old.

“These latest trailers feature improved aerodynamics and load fill, giving them a stronger profile to deliver customers’ loads.”

Andrew Brown, Sales Director Doncaster for Gray & Adams, said: “We are proud to be partnering with the company which is now the largest consolidator of frozen food in the UK.”
