Mr Kipling Signs With Vacu-Lug
Lloyd Fraser Contracts has selected Vacu-Lug as the tyre fleet management solution-provider for its Manor Bakeries contract, which covers the nationwide distribution of bakery products including the well-known Mr Kipling brand.
The agreement will see new Yokohama tyres fitted to all the truck steer-axles of Lloyd Fraser’s 38 Manor Bakeries-dedicated MAN tractor units. Vacu-Lug’s own-brand Duramold retread tyres (predominately super-singles) will be fitted to the 120 permanent trailers. The agreement has been written as a pence-per-kilometre contract based on the truck and trailer fleet’s anticipated monthly mileage.
Service will be centred around Lloyd Fraser’s Rugby, Warwickshire base with country-wide back-up and emergency assistance provided by Vacu-Lug’s network of service-partners. The service delivered to Lloyd Fraser will be monitored and controlled by Vacu-Lug’s Operations team using VFM, (Vacu-Lug Fleet Management), the company’s recently launched online tyre management and reporting system.
“Having worked with Vacu-Lug over the past five years on other contracts, I had no hesitation whatsoever in taking out this agreement,” Matthew Preston (pictured), general manager for Lloyd Fraser Contracts commented.
