Riwal brings transport services in-house
17 October 2014
Riwal has brought transport services in-house the UK.
Since the establishment of Riwal in the UK in 2009, Riwal has used sub-contracted hauliers. Due to fleet size growth and the growing number of depots, the decision was made to bring the core transport requirements in house.
The investment consists of MAN trucks and King trailers, as well as MAN rigid plant vehicles for customers with restricted delivery access requirements. The trucks will be used around the entire Riwal UK depot network.
Tim White, Riwal UK’s managing director said, “We undertook an in-depth review of our external transport usage and how we could best service our customers, keeping in mind the increasing safety requirements to major sites such as Crossrail and The Olympic Project.
"We chose a Euro 6 engine on all vehicles to reduce our carbon emissions and all trucks are Crossrail compliant with reversing cameras and additional mirrors and signage to ensure the safety of all road users. The move to bringing our core transport requirements in house further demonstrates Riwal UK's dedication towards delivering the best customer experience.”
