Fenn Logistics provides transport and supply-chain services from its base near Burton-on-Trent for key clients involved in the food and ambient sectors right across the UK. During these strange and unprecedented times along with many other businesses, they have been delivering vital food supplies up and down the country.

 

Gary Major, Owner and MD of Fenn Logistics commented; We brought this vehicle into our fleet as it supports our commitment to the future and to offering drivers the best tools to ply their trade on behalf of our customers.

 All of our drivers put themselves, and their families and colleagues at risk of contracting the Coronavirus through contact with operatives in customers across the UK.  It isn’t too much of a stretch of the imagination to describe our employees as part of the supply-chain ‘front line.’

 Having resources such as this new tractor help make the process more efficient and this tractor offers significant benefits:

  • Improved Economy – up to 3% fuel saving depending on cruise control usage
  • Environment – reduced CO2
  • Drivability – ‘I- See’ notices slight inclines before the driver and combines and controls the best feature of the Volvo driveline
  • Comfort & Safety from Intelligent Control – I-See engine, I-Shift, I-Roll and VEB + Engine Brake

Hartshorne also commented; “Thank you to the team at Fenn Logistics for their continued loyalty to the Volvo brand and to the team at Hartshorne Burton for the quick turnaround”

A New Identity

To all our Customers, Suppliers and Employees

Change is inevitable and it comes to all of us and, from 1st February 2020, RG Fenn Limited is changing its ‘trading name’ to Fenn Logistics Limited but it is not just a change for change sake.  We believe it reflects what we do, rather than what we did. The Legal entity, Company Registration Number, VAT number and the Directors of the Company will all remain the same.

We believe is a more appropriate’ brand’ name for the long-term.

I, our management and all of our drivers are committed to being a true logistics business and we look forward to working with you in the years to come.

Kind regards,

Gary Major, Managing Director, Fenn Logistics Limited

RG Fenn

New Trailers and Partnership with Montracon

RG Fenn provides transport and supply chain services from its base near Burton-on-Trent for a number of clients in the food and ambient sectors right across the UK. It has a fleet of artic and rigid units in both box and curtain side formats that allow for a huge degree of flexibility in the type and scale of product handled.

It was recently proud to take delivery of three new curtain side units from Montracon, who provided a great product at a price that was reasonable.

Gary Major, RG Fenn’s MD commented; “This highly visible livery gives us a better presence on the road , very proud of this, it’s simple and stylish and stands out from the crowd! – Thanks Montracon! We look forward to a mutually beneficial future.”

Keeping track of valuable assets

Fenn Logistics is a business that believes all of its assets, human as well as capital, are crucial to the well-being of the company and its customers.  Sometime ago the company began a relationship with ‘Competitive Tracking’ (‘CT’), initially to enable vehicle and trailer tracking – essential to ensure customers get what they want, when they want it.  But it had the added benefit of enabling the management to ensure that all of its front-line drivers were in place and operating safely wherever they are.

CT is run by Tim Birkinshaw and offers online vehicle tracking combined with onboard cameras and a full suite of telematics functions available on laptop/pc or mobile devices.

Based in Stafford, Staffordshire CT has worked with Fenn Logistics for a number of years and the relationship is almost symbiotic. Fenn Logistics wanted a suite that enabled tracking/telematic solutions for almost anything, however remote.

Although the key for Fenn Logistics is to improve control, managing and enhancing their operation whilst reducing their costs, and securing profit margins to enable the business to continue to offer its customers the very best services.

But it is crucial that we are able to meet the duty of care regulations, whilst benefiting our employees and controlling expensive assets. In fact, through our relationship with CT, we can remotely monitor and control almost anything using their intuitive hardware and online ‘EasyTrack’ software reporting.

Gary Major, Fenn Logistics MD commented; “In the years that we have worked together  with Tim and CT we have formed what we believe is a real partnership for now and into the future.”

Lilly’s Future – ‘Just Giving’

A few days ago, this little girl lost her Mummy and RG Fenn has launched a ‘Just Giving’ page hoping to offer some support for Lilly’s Future.

Here is the link https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/LillysFuture

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The aim is to raise at least £2,000 to establish a fund that will allow Lilly, and her Dad – Tom – to have some security and pay for her childcare and education in her formative years.

No matter how small, or large, your donation will be much appreciated and will allow Tom to focus on the two aspects of his life – his daughter and his work as a driver for RG Fenn – that mean so much.

Please join us in securing ‘Lilly’s Future’.

Thank you.

RG Fenn supports its’ customers …

On the first of July, RG Fenn provided a newly liveried tractor unit at the Nestle Logistics ‘Open day’ in aid of York Teaching Hospital’s ‘Oncology Ward” and also donated to the charity raffle.

Nestle’s representatives commented; “Your generous donation to our raffle was very gratefully received and contributed to the day by enhancing our raffle ticket sales. Your truck was a fantastic feature at the event and I do hope you will join us again for our next open day.”

The event saw over 500 attendees, all of whom had a great time exploring the logistics operation and enjoying an afternoon picnic in the sun while listening to music from in-house bands.

Gary Major, RG Fenn’s MD, said that; “… the company was proud to support such a worthy cause as well as one of its biggest customers and looked forward to more cooperation into the future.”
