A new £3 million contract to supply 32 double-deck refrigerated trailers to leading temperature-controlled food distribution specialists Reed Boardall has been awarded to Asset Alliance Group.
Operating out of the company’s Boroughbridge site, a dozen 13.6 metre tri-axle double-deck Gray & Adams reefers have already joined the 300-strong trailer fleet, with an additional order of 20 due later this year.
The new additions will be used to complete round-the-clock deliveries of frozen food.
Each trailer has been supplied on an operating lease contract, meaning Reed Boardall will manage its own vehicle maintenance, servicing and tyre management, whilst Asset Alliance Group will fund the finance of the vehicles for the seven-year contract.
The new additions mark an ongoing investment from Reed Boardall to upgrade its fleet and extends a longstanding working relationship between the two companies.
Graeme Richardson, managing director of Reed Boardall’s transport division, said, “We work our fleet intensively, so it’s essential we use trusted suppliers who meet our high standards when it comes to all aspects of our vehicles.”
