As part of the partnership programme with Hartshorne, UK Mail Group - the largest independent parcels, mail and logistics company within the UK - put two new Volvo FM13-460 6x2 tractor units into service at their Birmingham depot during September.

The new Volvo tractor units, which are both equipped with Dynafleet telematics, were supplied on a forty-eight month Contract Hire agreement with Volvo Financial Services. The new trucks are expected to cover around 190,000 kms a year and are being maintained at Hartshorne’s workshops at Gravelly Hill Industrial Park, Birmingham.

Hartshorne’s fully equipped bodyshop at Walsall is also providing a comprehensive trailer repair service for UK Mail Group.

“We are impressed by the enthusiasm and professional approach we’ve had from the team at Hartshorne,” says UK Mail Group’s Fleet Administration and Resource Manager (Transport Group) David Williams, adding.

“They were able to source two tractor units to our specification very quickly when we needed them. We are also using Hartshorne’s bodyshop at Walsall. We like the fact that they give us a fixed price for trailer repairs and also their reliability. Jobs are always completed on time and to the agreed price. As a value added service, the bodyshop provides a fantastic fit with our transport requirements.”

“UK Mail Group is very much the kind of key business we are focusing on to partner with. Our new management team’s focus on a solutions based approach, mirroring the way we are working with UK Mail Group, is revitalising the business.” says Hartshorne Director Keith Bradley.

As part of a more long-term fuel monitoring project, UK Mail Group are also evaluating the performance of an FM equipped with the latest Volvo D11 eleven-litre engine.
