Fishers takes delivery of 25 new trucks

Scotland’s largest commercial laundry and textile rental company, Fishers Laundry Services, has extended its relationship with Fraikin with the delivery of 25 new trucks – adding a single 7.5-tonne and 24 15-tonne rigids – as part of an ongoing fleet refreshment programme.

Fishers’ commercial vehicle fleet operates seven days a week, transporting laundry to and from the company’s five sites in Coatbridge, Livingston, Newcastle, Perth and Cupar to hospitality, industry, healthcare and cleanroom businesses. The company works across Scotland and the north of England processing up to two million items per week with its Cleanroom business servicing the whole of the UK.

The new additions to the fleet come with Fraikin’s full suite of connected technologies, including MYSMARTFLEET 360-degree cameras and access to maintenance portal FRAIKinVIEW, to help bolster safety and operational efficiency.

Lucy Renaut, Fishers group finance director, said: “Fraikin is still a relatively new supplier to our business. The partnership we have formed enables us to deliver our freshly laundered linen, towels and garments directly to our customers.

“Fraikin’s efforts to place new vehicle orders promptly have allowed us to maintain our typical renewal timeline and, more importantly, keep our focus entirely on our core business activities.”

The contract hire deal includes all scheduled vehicle maintenance and any repair work, alongside dedicated 24/7 support from the Fraikin team.

In addition, the connected technologies featured in the build specification offer real-time visibility and opportunity for analysis on metrics such as distance travelled, fuel efficiency and driver behaviour, as well as accurate predictive maintenance scheduling and breakdown and repair monitoring.

John Cooper, Fraikin business development manager, added: “It is great to see our strong supplier relationships pay dividends for Fishers, helping us to deliver these new units into service quickly. We’re excited about the opportunities to grow our relationship further over the years ahead.”
