Aliaxis has introduced a dedicated fleet of more than 30 specialist commercial vehicles to meet with its nationwide operational requirements for its UK brands, which include Hunter Plastics, Marley Plumbing & Drainage and Durapipe UK.
Complete with the latest technology, the new transport vehicles are fully in line with strict environmental standards due to the state-of-the-art Euro 6 design.
Distribution Partner, Fraikin, one of the largest fleet management companies in Europe, has supplied vehicles designed specifically for Aliaxis, inclusive of drivers and specialist fleet management.
The new vehicles meet the rigorous environmental requirements of Euro 6, a standard created to significantly reduce pollutants and emissions from all vehicles on the road, particularly significant for commercial vehicles in urban areas. In fact, a recent study detailing the 159 bus route in London, showed that the introduction of Euro 6 for commercial vehicles will see an 85-fold (99%) reduction in NOx emissions from Euro V.
All vehicles also feature the most up-to-date technology, including an on-board ecodrive telematics system that significantly improves the visibility and performance of the fleet for the drivers, as well as a start-stop system to reduce long idle times.
Colin Melvin, Strategic Customer Development Director at Fraikin, explains: “It is so important that the most up-to-date commercial vehicles are being deployed on our roads to guarantee driver safety, improve average vehicle economy and contribute to a greener environment. In this way, we were very happy to work closely with Aliaxis as a distribution partner to ensure we could provide a fleet that specifically met their objectives.”
