Temperature controlled distribution

Reed Boardall has one of the most modern fleets of cold and frozen distribution vehicles. Serving every corner of the UK, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, we can deliver to meet the needs of both manufacturers and end users. Over 40 % of our work is source destination and the fleet is monitored and supported by the traffic office 24/7.

Comprising 180 state-of-the-art articulated tractor units, all with the latest industry technology – including lane change monitoring, driver assist braking, advanced communications systems and on-board computerised temperature monitoring. The fleet includes 78 moving floor double-deck trailers, the largest fleet of its kind in the UK, which can carry up to 44 pallets - substantially reducing the number of food miles.

With no vehicles over three years old, we have an ongoing programme of fleet upgrades. The latest additions, our brand new Volvo FH tractors, incorporate an active safety package with driver support systems designed to improve driver comfort and safety.

All our new vehicles comply with Euro 6, the latest diesel engine emission legislation being driven by the European Commission.

Our fleet benefits from the support of an onsite garage which is open 24 hours a day and we have our own Authorised Testing Facility (ATF) enabling us to carry out MOT testing onsite. The Boroughbridge site is also able to undertake tachograph calibration and boasts its own facilities for refuelling and for Adblue.
