Daily Hi-Matic 7.2-tonners deliver for Waterlogic

Iveco Daily Hi-MaticFleet management and contract hire specialist Fraikin has supplied 19 Iveco Daily curtainsiders to Waterlogic, replacing 7.5 tonne trucks. The Daily 7.2-tonners may have a lower gross vehicle weight than the predecessors, but they offer greater payload capacity, maximising fleet efficiency. They will transport water bottles nationwide, making a number of drops a day, five days a week.

Fraikin specified the newcomers with Iveco’s eight-speed Hi-Matic automatic transmission to deliver improved driver comfort and fuel economy. The vehicles are mounted with bespoke-built curtainside bodies manufactured by Transload, featuring stillages mounted to the floor for carrying water bottles.

As part of the contract, Waterlogic will benefit from fixed monthly payments as well as full servicing, maintenance and repair, tyre replacement, routine safety inspections, road fund licensing and 24/7 breakdown support. Fraikin will manage all maintenance via an approved third-party network on a collection and delivery basis.

“Fraikin is a long-standing supplier and we really value its strategic advice,” said Kevin Matthews, national operations director at Waterlogic. “It’s not a case of simply ordering new trucks from Fraikin, they looked at our precise requirements and maintenance history, and recommended a totally new solution which will make our business more efficient and improve our corporate image.

“With Fraikin, we can concentrate on our business, safe in the knowledge our fleet is being impeccably maintained and managed. Fraikin understood our business from day-one and always make things very easy for us. That’s why we’ve been with them for so long.”
