New livery galvanizes truck fleet

Wedge Group Galvanizing is rolling out a new look for its fleet of more than 100 trucks.

The business runs a collection and delivery service at each of its 14 plants across the UK and said it is keen to modernise the livery across the entire operation.

Some 70 rigid HGVs and 42 articulated lorries will have the new livery as part of the company’s fleet renewal programme.

The move is part of a major overhaul of the nationwide fleet, which is also being switched from Mercedes to DAF chassis.

Paul Thompson, Fleet Transport Manager for Wedge Group Galvanizing, said: “Our vehicles are our shop window in many ways, so it’s vital that they stand out and are consistent with our brand guidelines.

“The new modern livery will make each of our trucks instantly recognisable and that improves our visibility.”

Each of the plants within the Wedge Group network, which stretches from Glasgow to Devon and from Newport, Wales to East Anglia, runs its own collection and delivery service with trucks based on site.

Mr Thompson added: “Some operate more vehicles than others, depending on workload, and some will have more vehicles than others, depending on the type of work they’re typically carrying out.

“We also have around 100 of our own drivers and will supplement that, as and when necessary, so it’s certainly a major operation.”
