TRUCK INVESTMENT FOR FAMILY FIRM

TRUCK INVESTMENT FOR FAMILY FIRM

Expanding Enderby (Leics) based Flood Transport www.floodtransport.co.uk continues to invest in its fleet of trucks as part of its commitment to maximum transport efficiency and minimum emissions.

Flood Transport already has a fleet of 11 state-of-the-art Euro 6 tippers and has expanded with its first Renault truck, from East Midlands dealer RH Commercial Vehicles (www.rhcv.co.uk).

The firm supports the quarrying sector - delivering dry and coated aggregates across the East Midlands. Flood supplies and delivers a wide range of materials including asphalt and concrete used in the construction of road surfaces and paths.

Established in 1999 the business, set up by husband and wife team Mark and Clare (and Mark’s late father Peter Flood) has steadily grown from being an owner-driver to running a fleet of 11 vehicles with a team of 20. The new Renault bulk bodied sealed tipper joins Flood’s fleet of 32-ton Euro 6 tippers.

Flood is part of The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) - a voluntary accreditation scheme for fleet operators which aims to raise the level of quality within fleet operations, and to demonstrate which operators are achieving exemplary levels of best practice in safety, efficiency, and environmental protection. The company has FORS Gold accreditation as well as having recently achieved the ISO 14001 leading environmental standard.

The new vehicle demonstrates Flood’s continued environmental commitment and FORS Gold accreditations and demonstrates its commitment to lowering its emissions by purchasing the latest Euro 6 vehicle.

Mark Flood comments

“During the past few months during the Covid 19 pandemic we have managed to keep going, I think which is due to us being centrally located in the East Midlands with large construction projects nearby such as HS2.

“Also, the country’s main motorway network continually needs repairing and maintaining on our doorstep. We have managed to get through it without furloughing any staff at all, in fact our staff levels have increased during the past four months.”

RHCV offered the firm a demonstrator vehicle last winter and were very impressed with driver feedback on the test truck. He added:

“We had never considered purchasing a Renault before but the feedback from drivers was very positive, its emissions level good and we were impressed with the truck’s performance. From the point of ordering right through to the delivery from RHCV the process has been a breeze.”

Andy Cross, Heavy Commercial Vehicle Sales Executive at RHCV said:

“We are proud that we have been able to support the team at Flood and delighted they chose a Renault truck to assist the new business.”

RHCV has been selling, leasing servicing and repairing heavy (HGV) and light commercial (LCV) vehicles across the East Midlands for four decades. The company employs 140 staff across its four sites in the East Midlands – in Nottingham, Cossington (Leics), Northampton and Alfreton (Derbys).
