Huge fleet investment announced by Whistl

17 May 2022/Categories: Logistics & Supply Chain, Operations Management


Whistl, a UK based logistics specialists in e-fulfilment, mail, and parcels has started a £12m investment fleet expansion and renewal programme.  Over twelve months the company will update its fleet with Euro VI compliant: I7 Peugeot Boxer 435 Vans; 26 18t and 17 26t ridged trucks; and 126 Renault T-Range Tractor Units.

In addition, it will be bringing in 115 new trailers including 70 new box trailers; 30 new curtain trailers that will be XL rated, ensuring better load security; and a further 15 curtain XL rated trailers with tail lifts fitted.

The Peugeot Boxer 435 Vans are on leases that enable Whistl to swap them with electric-powered replacements when they become available.

This year, Whistl is consolidating all the transport fleet across the Group under a new transport management system to better utilise the fleet, maximising loads and reducing mileage.

Alistair Cochrane, CEO at Whistl said: “We are continuing to invest in our fleet right across the Group including the businesses we have acquired in the last few years, such as Parcelhub, It is important that we ensure that we operate efficiently and as environmentally sustainable as possible; our flexible lease contracts on the Boxer Vans reflect this.”
