Tramo UK has taken delivery of a new fleet of brand-new bespoke sign-written Volkswagen Crafter vans from Herd Business, meeting its specialist requirements.
Tramo is a specialist in providing high-end luxury furniture and was looking for a commercial fleet solution with a bespoke cargo area to provide extra protection and support when transporting their goods and opted for a fleet of Luton CR35 Crafters.
While the Luton van comes as standard with racking for strappings to assist with anything from home and office moves to large appliance deliveries, Tramo wanted extra protection to minimise any damage caused when furniture was on the road being delivered.
Herd Business rose to the challenge and created a padded racking solution exactly to the brief of Tramo, adding padding and extra strapping points to enable improved load security without increasing the risk of damage. The padded rails enable deliveries are cushioned on deliveries.
Dean Holmes, Tramo UK fleet and transport manager, said: “I chose Herd for the Luton’s with bespoke racking solution over and above other suppliers because the communication, lead-time, guarantees and level of service were all superior and made the whole process very simple.”
Holmes added: “The feedback from our drivers has been overwhelmingly positive and the additional load security points and padding in the rear of the vehicle has made the loading and securing of goods a much easier task.”
In addition to this, Tramo has also signed up to Herd Connect Brilliant Fleet Management service which is free for 12 months. Herd will manage all aspects of Tramo’s fleet requirements, reducing costs of maintenance and repairs to vehicles by using the Herd network of preferred suppliers, with no tie-in contract.
The adoption of the My Vehicle inspection app will enable drivers to carry out vehicle inspections and log defects via their smart phones and full integration with Herd’s online fleet management system ensures that essential vehicle inspections are up-to-date.
