Carlton Packaging partners with Ryder

Carlton Packaging is switching to a leased delivery fleet, and has chosen Ryder to supplying two Daf 18-tonne curtainsiders with day cabs, a Daf six by two tractor with space cab and curtainsided SDC trailer.

The vehicles, which are on a three year contract, will make deliveries from Carlton’s UK distribution hub in Milton Keynes.

Barry Smalley, senior operations manager at Carlton, says: “I joined the business last summer, and it was soon clear that we needed to add to our fleet. With the business growing, we turned to Ryder for a truck on spot-hire.

“We were happy with the speed of delivery and quality of service from Ryder. ‘Loads smarter’ is our proven methodology to increase our clients’ profitability and increase their consumer loyalty, so improving our fleet to meet our customers’ needs was one of the smarter services we offer”
