Spizarnia Chooses Ryder For London ULEZ

Ryder has supported Polish food wholesaler Spizarnia with its first vehicle contract hire agreement.

The new Euro-6 vehicles are 26-tonne DAF CF330s with Solomon bodies and Carrier Transicold fridges, and are being used to deliver products to customers in London and the South.

Due to the weight of the pallets that Spizarnia delivers, the firm needed the 26-tonne vehicles to have 9-tonne front axles - instead of the usual 8-tonne.

According to Spizarnia, Ryder also impressed with its service centre network, with the operator taking out a sales and service contract for its existing fleet at two of its cross-dock facilities.

Przemyslaw Duklas, Director of Spizarnia (UK) said: “Usually I buy five-year-old vehicles on the used truck market, but with the London Ultra Low Emission Zone coming into force earlier this year, it was proving very difficult to get hold of second-hand Euro-6 vehicles.

“Ryder was easy to work with, competitive with its pricing, and assisted with our specific operational requirements.

"Our system is fully computerised, so we know the weight of our pallets, and from experience, it is essential that the trucks have a 9-tonne front axle, because otherwise we cannot use the entire loading area.

“All the weight would be over the front axle and we would have to move the load back from the front. Ryder’s London service centre is in Park Royal, just five minutes from our London cross-dock, and Ryder’s Manchester service centre is also conveniently located.

“Price-wise and service-wise, I am very happy I chose Ryder. Our account manager Melissa is very proactive and always there to help us with any issues.”
