Fraikin provides full-service contract to William Sword

William Sword has signed a conquest deal with Fraikin for the supply of its entire commercial vehicle fleet.

The deal comprises six new refrigerated 3.5-tonne Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans and one refrigerated 7.2-tonne Iveco Daily, each supplied in William Sword livery.

They will all carry out deliveries of ambient, chilled and frozen produce across Scotland and northern England, for the Cumbernauld-based food manufacturer.

“We opted for Fraikin because they understood precisely what we required, tailoring an agreement that best suited our business. We know we can rely on them to keep our vehicles on the road when we need them, alleviating unnecessary pressures on our team and enabling us to focus on our core business,” said Douglas Sword, Managing Director at William Sword.

“The full service deal also offers us the most cost-effective way of operating our fleet. Aside from fuel and vehicle insurance, our monthly vehicle operating costs are nailed down, so we know exactly how much to budget for the duration of the contract,” he added.

The local Fraikin branch in Bellshill will carry out all safety inspections, servicing and tyre management of the new light commercials on a collection and delivery basis.

William Sword also has access to Fraikinview, the web portal that allows customers to monitor the maintenance cycle of their vehicles.

Across the four year contract, each of the vehicles is expected to clock up 120,000 miles, all covered by Fraikin’s 24/7 roadside assistance.
