Fraikin’s share of Scotch Frost of Glasgow’s 60-strong commercial vehicle fleet has increased to 90% following new a contract hire agreement.

Scotch Frost of Glasgow has signed a new six-year, full-service contract hire agreement for 10 temperature controlled rigid trucks.

The new vehicles – two 7.5-tonne Iveco Eurocargos, an 18-tonne and five 15-tonne DAF LFs and two 26-tonne DAF XFs – replace both older outright purchased and leased assets.

They are both powered by Euro 6 compliant engines and feature ProVision True 360º cameras and telematics.

Scotch Frost of Glasgow’s group transport manager John MacKinnon said: “Fraikin has continually demonstrated how well it understands our business.

“We benefit from a great relationship at both account manager level and from the branches which look after our fleet, plus the contract hire model works well for us from a finance perspective.

“When it came to making a decision about replacing older vehicles, growing the fleet with Fraikin was a straightforward one.

“Fraikin understands the vehicles we need, and is always happy to tailor the spec to our exact requirements.

"Their independence also means we can access the best possible make and model of vehicles for our needs, ensuring we are always operating the cleanest, safest and most efficient fleet we can.”
