Shown here underneath The Shard is the first Euro-6 vehicle to enter service for London Linen, a 7.5 tonne Iveco Eurocargo supplied by Fraikin. The truck, provided under a five-year contract hire agreement, will be used for delivery and collection of linen to high-end restaurants across the capital. It features a customised body with rear and side shutters to aid loading and unloading and ensure even load distribution across the axles.
Cleaner lorries will receive a 10% discount on the HGV Road User Levy from next year as part of the government’s plans to improve air quality.
Commercial vehicle fleet services supplier Fraikin has signed a new two-year contract with grocery retailer Sainsbury’s to manage the supermarket’s home delivery fleet in southern England.
Fraikin believes the DVSA’s earned recognition scheme can deliver improvements in vehicle uptime for operators.
