Full load transport specialist Brit-Pol has sourced new DAF XF480 tractor units along with vehicle damage protection package from Ryder, a leading independent provider of commercial vehicle contract hire, rental, and maintenance services.

The tractors are a mixture of replacement and additional vehicles, and operate from Brit-Pol’s Immingham base, hauling full loads from the Port of Immingham and Humber Sea Terminal for clients such as LKW Walter, DFDS Logistics and DSV.

Brit-Pol decided to take out Ryder’s Collision Damage Reducer (CDR) to support their fleet. This offers Ryder customers a number of benefits should a Ryder-supplied vehicle in their operation be damaged:

  • GAP cover included as standard;
  • effective in-house claims team;
  • co-ordinated vehicle repairs;
  • CDR payment included in the customer’s monthly invoice;
  • no additional costs for monthly payment; and
  • no Insurance Premium Tax charged.

Brit-Pol Managing Director Sebastian Zegocki explained: “We’re a growing business and we want partners who can support us as we grow: Ryder can do that. The service from Ryder is amazing; if there’s ever any issue, it’s solved very quickly.

“It’s important to us to have high-specification tractors; the XFs have built-in fridges, which keep our tramping drivers happy. Ryder’s CDR offering is very competitive,” he added.

Jim Agnew, Ryder Area Sales Manager, said: “We are delighted to support this growing, family-owned business. We were able to understand Brit-Pol’s vehicle requirements, while our Collision Damage Reducer gives them peace of mind.”
