Romac Logistics funds fleet through Asset Alliance

Manchester, UK:  Asset Alliance Group played a crucial role launching a new chilled and ambient logistics provider Romac Logistics.

The group’s commercial vehicle funding division, Asset Alliance, supplied the company with 10 new Mercedes-Benz Actros 450 Big Space tractors and 10 new Gray & Adams multi-temp trailers on a three-year, operating lease with repair and maintenance support.

Asset Alliance’s ATE Truck and Trailer Sales, provided Romac Logistics with eight used Schmitz Cargobull single-temp trailers.

Rob McAdoo, owner of Romac Logistics says: “The overall package they offered was by far the best in the marketplace, and the fact they arranged such a competitive finance package so quickly and sourced the mix of used and new vehicles we needed was so important to us.”

Romac Logistics’ trucks and trailers will carry chilled and ambient goods from the company’s Leeds depot for contracts with UK manufacturers and retailers.

Asset Alliance’s repair and maintenance package means Romac Logistics pays an agreed monthly fee for support services, which covers all running, servicing and MOT costs for the units over the lifetime of the contract. McAdoo says: “We are already looking to expand our operation further with Asset Alliance Group before Christmas. The service has been excellent so far and the group stands out as an organisation that’s creative, flexible and adaptable in its approach.”

Romac Logistics is a family-run business, offering British Retail Consortium-accredited storage and warehousing, and primary and secondary transport with its own distribution fleet.
