Independent board and paper stockist, Warren, has significantly increased its delivery capacity with the addition of two new Warren-branded livery vehicles.
Warren first introduced its own branded vehicles back in April 2016, having experienced a fragmentation of national hauliers and with the company requiring a solution that met the needs of its customer base. Needing to react quicker to customer demand, it acquired its first set of vehicles. Roll forward two and a half years, and with Warren having gained a much broader customer base together with increased demand for its products, there came the need for a much greater capacity to be added.
Therefore, at the beginning of 2019, Warren acquired two 26T DAF CF curtain-sided vehicles from local truck supplier Alltruck plc. As an ISO14001 certified company, Warren takes its environmental concerns seriously, and so both vehicles are Euro6 compliant, therefore meeting the latest and most stringent emissions regulations.
Warren’s Operations Director, David Whitaker said, “with changes in regional deliveries in recent years, that decision in 2016 allowed us to be more flexible. Since then the tremendous efforts of our logistics team in operating those vehicles at maximum efficiency encouraged us to invest in two new vehicles, increasing our overall capacity.”
In addition, Warren continues to partner with both North-East based haulier Tyneside Express and the national logistics company, Knights of Old. Orders are trunked overnight to both companies to provide Warren’s expanding paper and board customer base with an improved next-day delivery service.
The two newly acquired vehicles have been liveried with the unmistakable branding of Warren’s rabbit mascot, Starsky, making them easily identifiable on the road.
