The new fleet of 13 vehicles will go live from Autumn 2024. Customers will see an immediate benefit as an improved temporary fleet has been introduced to bridge the gap ahead of the full transition later this year.
The new fleet spans from 3.5 tonne up to 18 tonne vehicles, with chilled and frozen capacity to serve routes across the UK mainland.
Steve Williams, group sales director at Prohire, said: “We are delighted to partner with BonCulina UK, becoming its preferred and trusted supplier of contract hire and fleet management solutions and supporting its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy. We are proud to support the team in meeting their client-driven needs and are looking forward to developing the partnership over the coming years.”
BonCulina supplies frozen plated meals and chilled and frozen multi-portion meals, for healthcare, care homes, business & industry and defence in the UK.
Sanjay Nayar, head of supply chain for BonCulina UK, added: “It is a vital component in the transformation of our outbound logistics to support growing volumes across market sectors and to meet our NHS delivery targets. We acknowledge that receiving the right product at the right time is paramount to our clients being able to provide top-class food service which is as important to us as our clients.
“This is an important milestone in a comprehensive plan to transform our end-to-end supply chain, with further improvements planned in the months to come. We are very happy in our decision to select Prohire as our fleet management partner going forward and are really satisfied with the service level we have received so far.”
