Global transport logistics provider, Anglia Freight Ltd, based in Eye, Suffolk, has chosen 6 Renault Range D 18 tonners, on a five year contract hire from BRS Ltd as the latest additions to its fleet. BRS Ltd, one of the UK's leading suppliers of commercial vehicle contract hire solutions, won the new business on the basis of value for money, customer service and the reputation and performance of the Renault Range Ds.

The 4 additional and 2 replacement vehicles will join Anglia Freight's 35-strong fleet in July servicing their network territory in East Anglia as well as further afield in the UK, covering a range of groupage loads.  A full contract hire package is being provided by BRS with maintenance of the vehicles through the local Renault Trucks authorised network.

Commenting on the decision to bring the Range Ds onto Anglia Freight's fleet, Director Douglas Shawcross said: "We have been running Renaults for a while and we have been hearing good things about the performance of the new Euro 6 vehicles so we wanted to bring them on board."

Douglas continued "BRS approached us at the perfect time as we were looking for some new vehicles.  They were able to offer us the package we were looking for, as well as great value for money.  The fact that there was a local dealer to maintain the trucks was also an important factor in our decision to go with BRS."

Mark Pitcher, BRS, said "We understand how passionate Anglia Freight is about logistics and getting it right for their customers and how vehicle performance and reliability is crucial in delivering on their promises.  Renault Trucks has invested significantly in the new Euro 6 Range D vehicles and they are, quite rightly, developing a well deserved reputation for performance, reliability and driver satisfaction. I'm delighted that Anglia Freight has chosen BRS and we are really looking forward to managing the truck's full contract hire on their behalf."
