Organic fruit and vegetable home delivery service Abel & Cole has taken delivery of twenty additional 3.5 tonne, chilled home delivery vehicles and ordered an additional twenty one to service its rapidly expanding network.
Wimbledon-based Abel & Cole is intensifying its expansion in an effort to become the leading national organic vegetable online retailer and is increasing its regional distribution hubs by 25%.
The company’s current distribution network that covers most of England from the South Coast to Leeds in the North, will be further extended with a new centre in Exeter in the autumn.
The 3.5 tonne Iveco Daily vehicles have bespoke box bodies featuring Hubbard 360 AM chiller units. The chiller units have been specified to meet a demanding requirement of around 140 door openings per delivery round.
Hubbard Product’s units are specified exclusively for Abel & Cole’s current 108 vehicle home delivery fleet, undertaking approximately 30,000 deliveries each week.
