Yusen Logistics has changed the vinyl wrapping on 58 of its truck cabs to a striking black livery to reflect its distribution contract with Howdens Joinery Group.
Hexagon Leasing, which supplied the Renault D Range 18-tonners and T480 6x2 tractor units, worked with graphics specialist RGVA to complete the project and wrap most of the vehicles as they rolled off the production line.
Karl Walker, contract manager at Yusen Logistics, said: “Our vehicles represent the Howdens brand out on the road. As an important customer of ours, it was imperative they looked the part – which is why we turned to RGVA.
“Wrapping 58 trucks while ensuring minimum downtime for our operation was always going to be a challenge, but the team were more than up to the task. RGVA’s flexible approach meant they were able to find workable solutions to issues related to the fitting environments, helping to ensure the project was completed in a timely manner.”

David Hodgkinson, head of sales at Hexagon Leasing added: “We always strive to work in partnership with our customers and suppliers to offer innovative solutions to challenging situations.
“The project was completed efficiently and to the planned schedule ensuring that any downtime of the new trucks was minimised.”
Each vehicle was wrapped by a team of two over a five-day period, with all 58 completed within eight months.
