Fleet news logo

VMS has extended a three year relationship with Turners Fine Foods by supplying 20 refrigerated vans.

Based in Goudhurst, Kent, Turners Fine Foods are a supplier and distributor of everyday and luxury foods. They deliver to hospitality, food service and retail establishments, nationwide.

VMS will be supplying 20x MWB Refrigerated Mercedes Sprinter Box Vans for delivery at the beginning of March 2016 on a contract hire agreement.

All vehicles will be built by Polar Truck & Van and fitted with the Alex Original 3000 Series Dual Evaporator System with 1ph electric standby facility. The batch of new-build vehicles will be tailored to fully utilise the chilled and frozen compartments.

A tunnel section will be built to allow for frozen goods to be stored and has been designed so the frozen storage can fit the whole width of the vehicle body. The chilled section will fit above the frozen compartment allowing for both dual compartments to have sufficient storage space for their deliveries with access from the side door. As the demands in the food distribution sector continue to soar, the delivery of these vehicles will help to improve Turners’ customer experience and service around the UK.

Richard Hobbs, operations and transport manager, Turners Fine Foods said: “We are always looking at improving the service to our customers, the ‘Turners specific’ design will ensure product quality is kept to the highest standard, whatever the weather. We have chosen the Mercedes chassis’ to help maintain the reliable fleet we have always enjoyed with VMS.”
