Freightspeed going 100 per cent Ford

Freightspeed has been in business over twenty years. They supply pharmaceutical product to practically every hospital, nursing home, doctors surgery and pharmacy in the country. At times they also have had to deliver to operating theatres.

A FreightSpeed Group spokesperson says: “You can imagine failed, or not on time deliveries are not an option. Freightspeed cannot run a service of such national importance without guarantees of continuity of service. To put in simple terms, we deliver medicines that can be life changing for the end user.”

“With this in mind, all aspects of our service have to be to the highest standard.Having tried and tested all makes of commercial vehicle over the years we have found the Ford Transit to be the most reliable. The Ford assist back up service is simply invaluable no matter how infrequently you use it. Part of Freightspeeds commitment to its customers is continuous improvement.”

Over the years Freightspeed staff would have gone on ‘Lean’ management courses. One of these courses was to evaluate the cost per mile on all of our fleet. The spokesperson said: “We evaluated in diesel consumption and maintenance expense, how much each type of vehicle costs annually.”

Adding: “Our results were conclusive Ford Transits were the most economical commercial vehicle presently on the road today. From these results we made a business decision to change all of our 200 fleet of vans to Ford.”
