Roger Warnes Transport has said employing Ford & Slater as its only parts provider has dramatically reduced its administration costs.

The Norfolk-based bulk haulage specialist, a long-standing customer of the dealer, was approached by the parts team with an offer guaranteeing access at any time to a supply of genuine DAF parts and TRP all-make parts, for its mixed fleet of 95 trucks and 101 trailers.

Ian Barclay, transport operations director at Roger Warnes Transport, said: “One of the main ways Ford and Slater helped to minimise downtime was to organise and streamline our existing parts stock before adding impress stock, to ensure we have access to the parts we need night or day.

“We no longer sift through multiple invoices for each purchase, but instead receive one invoice at the end of each month. This has made us a massive administration saving,” he added.

Ford and Slater has also signed an agreement to become sole parts supplier for existing customer Foulger Transport, based in Norwich. Matt Archer, general manager - group parts at Ford and Slater, said: “We can give companies such as Roger Warnes access to an extensive supply of parts, for any make or model and at any time, day or night.”
