Petit Forestier UK meets customer demand
Petit Forestier UK, Europe’s leading refrigerated rental company, meets customer demand by investing £20,000,000 into their short-term hire fleet, with a further investment of £20,000,000 planned for 2016
Re-affirming its position as the leading refrigerated rental company in the UK and Europe, with 16 depots throughout the UK and Ireland, Petit Forestier has increased the size of its short term rental fleet to over 1,200 vehicles which brings its total UK fleet to over 5,000 vehicles. The addition of 280 new vehicles will help customers who have an unexpected demand and also to support seasonal peaks.
The investment in the short-term hire fleet will significantly reduce the age of trucks available and will enable Petit Forestier to provide customers with greater choice and availability of the latest models. Additional vehicles added to the fleet include CDVs up to 26t Rigids. These vehicles are built to the latest specification with high tech. fridges ensuring efficient fuel consumption and reliability.
Pat Skelly, Managing Director for Petit Forestier UK said “By understanding our customers’ requirements, we have increased our fleet in the areas where we have the most demand. We want to provide our customers with the highest quality vehicles and that is why nearly 80% of the whole fleet is less than three years old.
Petit Forestier believes that by investing in their short term hire fleet all customers will be able to locate the vehicle they need, when they need it.”
The UK and Ireland are an important part of overall group activity, with the European business based over 180 depots controlling 40,000 refrigerated vehicles operating from 16 countries. With this depth of experience, we not only have the vehicle but also the team to support your business.
