£15.5m order from Fraikin

Commercial vehicle fleet services provider Fraikin has ordered over £12.5 million worth of new rental vehicles for the first half of 2007.

The order has been split between three manufacturers – DAF, Iveco and Mercedes-Benz – and will see 327 new vans and trucks join the fleet, representing the single largest vehicle order ever placed by Fraikin in the UK. It will also mark the first Euro 4 rental vehicles to join the fleet, together with the first rental trucks to be fitted with digital tachographs.

The new delivery replaces older units in the company’s 1,438-strong rental fleet, which includes vehicles ranging from 3.5 tonne panel vans to 44 tonne tractor units, and a comprehensive selection of box, curtainside, dropside and refrigerated body combinations.
