3D Transport, based in Glasgow, has turned to Ryder to carry out all maintenance and servicing on its mixed fleet of vehicles.

The agreement covers 3D Transport’s core fleet of Daf LF150s and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans used for its home delivery work throughout Scotland, as well as two Daf CF440 concrete mixers sourced from another company to work for Tarmac across the central belt of Scotland. Mark Hutchison, 3D owner, said: "I had an existing relationship with Ryder and knew that they were a Daf specialist, so it made sense to keep it all of my fleet’s maintenance under one roof.

“Ryder understands my business needs: I don’t want any downtime on any of my vehicles, so out-of-hours servicing is really important. At the end of the day, we drive a mixer to Ryder, which supplies a van to allow my driver to get back to our yard and then back to them the next morning to pick the mixer up.

"Also, I like that extra service, whereby I’m emailed by Ryder once the work is done. The email details the work carried out and any issues that need to be monitored, which means I can be proactive."

John Murray, Ryder sales and marketing director, said: "Our partnership with 3D Transport highlights that at Ryder we understand how important it is to be flexible and to understand operators’ needs. 3D can concentrate on its core operations, while Ryder services and maintains its vehicles to a high standard."
