Abbey Logistics is to take a fleet of Mercedes Actros 2446LS tractor units from Prohire on a 60-month contract to support a new bulk flour contract with British baker Hovis.

The vehicles are used to distribute bulk flour from Hovis’ flour mill in Wellingborough to bakery sites throughout the UK on a 24/7 basis.

The vehicles are FORS silver compliant and include numerous operational and safety features such as Gardner Denver high capacity blowers suitable for both dry and wet product operation.

“Bulk road tanker logistics is a very specialist area and Prohire proved able not only to source the most appropriate vehicles, but also to understand our usage requirements and meet our specification in terms of features and benefits,” Abbey Group head of finance Paul Jamieson.
