Ten brand new vehicles in the Polar Speed Thermologistics fleet have been fitted with Thermo King refrigeration units supplied and installed by Marshall Fleet Solutions. The units are being provided with maintenance and servicing as part of the ongoing contract.
Seven Thermo King V200 multi-temperature units were fitted into Mercedes Sprinter vans and a further three V300 multi-temperature units were fitted into a new fleet specification, 5-ton Mercedes vehicles with chassis cabs and 4 metre box bodies.
The Thermo King range, supplied through Marshall Fleet Solutions, has been a successful choice for the Polar Speed fleet, selected because of the highly accurate temperature control of the units which is of critical importance to its business operation. The vehicles must operate at two highly precise positive temperatures: 5°C and 20°C in separate compartments, in order to protect the temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products delivered all over the UK by Polar Speed. Every vehicle is fitted with calibrated onboard temperature recorders to monitor accuracy.
Director of Supply Chain at Polar Speed, Richard Holmes, states: "We selected Marshall Fleet Solutions once more because they deliver what we need, when we need it and keep our vehicles on the road, and crucially, at the temperatures we need to operate at."
Marshall Fleet Solutions is also providing 24/7 back-up service nationally to Polar Speed via its Fleet Management system. Andrew Howells, Managing Director of Marshall Fleet solutions said: "We have worked with Polar Speed over a long period of time; we understand what they need to make their business successful, and work with them to deliver top-class solutions."
Polar Speed offers the most comprehensive Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency approved temperate supply chain service currently available.
