Relationship Continues to Blossom with the Prohire Group and Bunzl Catering Supplies

Bunzl Catering Supplies has been a customer of Prohire for over 20 years and during this time the relationship has gone from strength to strength. Bunzl Catering Supplies source, consolidate and deliver essential non-food consumable products to their customers in the catering and hospitality sectors. Providing national coverage via a network of 7 operating branches, with a National Distribution Centre in Birch Coppice, Tamworth, Bunzl Catering Supplies deliver on a fleet of 145 light and heavy commercial vehicles adorned with Bunzl Catering Supplies livery.

Whilst Prohire supply vehicles to all Bunzl Catering Supplies branches, we were delighted to be the chosen supplier for all new vehicles required for Bunzl Catering Supplies’ new Harlow branch, opened in 2017 to serve the needs of a major new customer based primarily in the London area. In addition to these fleet additions Prohire has supplied Bunzl Catering Supplies new 3.5t Panel vans, Luton bodied vehicles, 7.5t to 18t rigid vehicles with box bodies, semi-trailers, and most recently, a fleet of new high specification Mercedes Actros Tractor units fitted with the latest fuel saving technology and safety features.

Bunzl Catering Supplies operates on a 48-hour delivery cycle, day one order for day three delivery, providing a regular scheduled delivery service to ensure that its customers always have stock of their non-food consumables. To support this operation, Prohire not only provide the vehicles on long term contract hire, but also manage the fleet uptime and compliance, whilst FleetLogic attends to all accident management requirements.

Whilst Paul Hassall, Operations Director and Andrew Morley, Sales Director have overseen the Bunzl Catering Supplies account for many years; it has been because of the solid account management provided by Sean Barnfather, Key Account Manager, supported by colleagues throughout the Prohire business that has allowed our relationship with Bunzl Catering Supplies to blossom to its current strength.
