Logistics specialist invests £5.7m in growth

International logistics firm Advanced Supply Chain has invested £5.7m in its fleet.

The Bradford-based company has seen a number of new contracts recently, and invested in a 56-strong fleet of Mercedes vehicles to keep up with demand.

It has signed deals with retailers including BHS International, Urban Outfitters and Decathlon.

Glyn Rogan, CFO at Advanced Supply Chain Group, said: “From an operational perspective, efficiency and reliability is always a key focus and maintaining a modern fleet is a central part of meeting our business goals.

“We do go above and beyond, particularly where our vehicles are concerned; the industry average for fleet renewal is every four to seven years – we’ve made this investment much sooner, just three years since we welcomed the last tranche of vehicles.

“We have an excellent safety record, and the spend is indicative of our commitment to providing clients with the very best service and delivering on our intelligent logistics promise.”

Mark Fletcher, commercial director at Hexagon Leasing Limited, said: “The new Mercedes fleet not only allows Advanced Supply Chain to maintain operational excellence and do justice to its customers’ brands, but is a real boon for its drivers, with the safest and most comfortable driving conditions.

“We’re looking forward to working with ASC to ensure that the fleet continues to deliver the very best performance in the coming months and years.”
