Fraikin to supply 10 car and van transporters to GEFCO UK

Fraikin/GEFCO transporters

International transport and logistics company GEFCO UK has signed a six-year contract hire deal with commercial vehicle fleet services provider Fraikin for the supply and maintenance of 10 new car and van transporters.

The new contract is a further extension of the long-term relationship between the two companies, which sees Fraikin providing fleet services to GEFCO in France, Poland, Switzerland and now the UK.

Each of the 44-tonne DAF CF trucks and Rolfo tri-axle trailers has been supplied by Fraikin on full service contract which includes all servicing, maintenance and repairs, road fund licencing, six-weekly safety inspections, annual MOT testing, tyre management and 24/7 roadside assistance.

John Stocker, finished vehicles logistics director at GEFCO UK, says: “We are thrilled with the extension of the existing GEFCO/Fraikin European relationship and their continued support throughout this process."

GEFCO UK is able to access real-time information on the fleet through Fraikin View – a web portal for Fraikin customers which provides management information about the availability and compliance of their vehicles.

The system allows customers to report vehicle defects online, access a vehicle’s full service history and monitor the up-to-the-minute progress of vehicle breakdowns.

It also lists planned maintenance work, helping customers to optimise fleet scheduling, and hosts vehicle documentation and fleet information to aid compliance.
