A SPECIALIST pharmaceutical logistic company that prides itself on swift, accurate and reliable temperature-controlled vehicles has taken delivery of two new GDP compliant refrigerated Mercedes Sprinters converted by CoolKit.
LF&E Refrigerated Transport specialises in delivering pharmaceutical goods, such as medication, syringes and vials, to patients’ homes, hospitals, care homes, NHS trusts and pharmaceutical companies. LF&E employs 55 people and has a fleet of 40 specialist vehicles delivering medical goods across the UK, Ireland and Europe.
Jason Buckley, managing director of LF&E, told Made in Britain, “We have been really impressed with the build quality. It is a very neat, professional job and the recessed condensers in the roof not only offer a better look but will also increase fuel efficiency due to the improved aerodynamics.
“During a summer like we have had, just 20 minutes in heat of 30 degrees will dramatically affect the temperature of goods, potentially rendering them useless in a substandard vehicle. That is not a risk we are willing to take.”
LF&E, which currently has two depots, has ambitious plans to expand their operation into a national network with an 80-strong fleet. With two more depots due to be open in the next six months, the new Sprinters will allow them to carry larger loads between the depots up and down the country.
Mark Beaton, sales specialist at CoolKit, said, “We are delighted to have provided two quality vehicles to LF&E that will assist with their ambitious growth plans. We understand the importance of creating a vehicle that will meet the needs of our clients and pride ourselves on suggesting and delivering the finer details that set us apart from the competition.”
