Fridgexpress Van Case Study
Nature of business:
Experts in refrigerated vehicle rental.
Fridgexpress offers simple and flexible refrigerated vehicle hire, sales and servicing. The company provides a fuss-free personalised service from a small, friendly team. Fridgexpress likes to look towards the more obscure and unusual rental opportunities that numerous organisations would step away from.
Problems faced by the client:
Fridexpress’ end user required increased capacity and the ability to carry a large volume of heavy boxed goods alongside more fragile chilled items.
To utilise a new vehicle that would give them the required capacity and be suitably configured to accommodate their mix of goods. The client wanted to continue to use vans rather than box bodies for its operation.
Coolertech took a 3500kg Mercedes Sprinter LWB van and converted it for chilled operation.
The single compartment van was fitted with shelving to enable the more delicate products, such as eggs, to be carried safely, whilst weightier items are stored on the hard-wearing floor of the van.
This configuration provided the end user with the capacity it required without having to increase the vehicle size.
