Customers of Europe’s leading paper, packaging and visual communications merchant, Antalis are set to benefit from a new fleet of more technologically advanced vehicles as part of its £5m partnership with leading commercial fleet provider, Fraikin.
Antalis recently took delivery of the first batch of its 81 new vehicles, having struck up a new seven-year contract with Fraikin at the beginning of the year to modernise its 160-strong fleet.
The new vehicles all feature brand new livery and the very latest technology designed to improve driver comfort, raise safety standards and lower CO2 emissions, all while ensuring an enhanced customer experience.
The state-of-the-art DAF Euro VI curtain-sided vehicles boast everything from advanced emergency braking which will trigger full on braking should an acute risk be detected and lane departure warnings alerting drivers if the vehicle is in danger of veering out of lane, through to a reversing camera for further enhanced vehicle safety. Each vehicle even comes with silent mode for quieter night-time deliveries and performance indicators to ensure safety standards are met at all times.
The vehicles are fully compliant to the FORS standards which, through additional mirrors, signage, cameras and audio warning systems, aim to improve efficiency and ensure the safety of vulnerable road users and site operators.
