Capital Expenditure Program Continues in 2016 (January 2016)

The company’s commitment to customer service is emphasised by the confirmed orders recently announced for new and replacement HGV equipment.

Following a total capital expenditure spend of £2.4m in 2015, Freightroute plans to spend a further capex total of £1.9m in 2016. Included in this total are 30 HGV’s comprising of both 18 ton rigid collection and delivery units and artic trunking units.

In addition the forklift fleet will be extended and an order for 20 straight frame curtain sided trailers has been placed.

Gavin Grant (managing director) was keen to stress the customer service aspect of these plans and how they support our stated objective of maintaining and improving the level of customer service.
