New livery helps to galvanize Liverpool fleet

A popular business in Liverpool is rolling out a new look for its fleet of trucks.

Merseyside Galvanizing runs a busy collection and delivery service from its site on Weaver Industrial Estate and the business is switching to new livery in a bid to make them instantly recognisable.

The plant is part of a network of UK businesses owned by Wedge Group Galvanizing and the move is central to a major overhaul of the company’s nationwide logistics operation.

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.”

Vehicles based at the site in Blackburne Street are also being switched from Mercedes to DAF chassis as part of the rolling renewal programme.

Paul added:

“We buy all our own vehicles outright and each plant has its own drivers based on site.

“We’re switching to DAF for several reasons, but largely because they produce great trucks with an excellent aftercare service.

“We’ve also invested in new systems and technology, including increasing the number of load lashing points, and developed two new dedicated Driver CPC courses specifically for the Wedge Group.

“Collection and delivery has been an integral part of the business for many years and we’re making sure it’s a service that’s fit for the future.”
