Bandvulc marks major new contract

Tyre fleet management specialists Bandvulc Plus+ will be celebrating a major new contract win at the CV Show (Stand 5H70) this year.

Bandvulc’s BVPlus+ division will be responsible for the management of Searon Logistics’ fleet of more than 200 vehicles, primarily based in the Port of Felixstowe and serving other major UK rail hubs.

Searon Logistics is involved in the management of containers across the UK and operates to tight time constraints. BVPlus+’s offer provided confidence in the ability to meet all of Searon Logistics’ requirements in an especially time sensitive operation.

It is the latest success for BVPlus+, the largest division of the Bandvulc Group. Phil West, Bandvulc Group Commercial Director, said: “In the transport sector every second counts. Companies need their vehicles on the road around the clock and we’re here to ensure that this happens. Searon Logistics’ requirements in the container sector are stringent, as you would expect. Our delivery of services is important to our continued growth, so we make sure all aspects of every offer is deliverable.”

Rob Lewis, Searon’s Fleet Manager, added: “Bandvulc’s offer was cost effective, forward thinking and provided room for future development and changes as the business continues to grow.”

BVPlus+ employs more than 60 people and has an annual turnover of circa £40million. Its clients fall into a wide range of business sectors from rental and retail, to specialist logistics and distribution.
