RGVA’s fleet wraps keep logistics company’s fleet looking sweet

October 26, 2016

Vehicle graphics company RGVA specialises in supplying decals, cut graphics, wraps and livery solutions to companies across the UK, working on vehicles ranging from cars and vans, to trucks, buses and coaches. The company’s latest project was to apply a striking livery to 25 new Scania R410 tractor units and 10 trailers for distribution specialist Corporate Solutions Logistics (CSL).

The latest contract marks a continuing relationship between the two companies that has seen RGVA apply CSL’s green and white branding to more than 70 commercial vehicle assets in the last 18 months.

Mark Ponsonby, sales director at CSL, says: “Our brand identity is built on the road. It’s essential that we work with a company that listens to our needs, and RGVA does exactly that. They offer a skilled, accurate, cost-competitive service, and they know exactly what’s required to get the work done. On top of that, they plan realistic start and completion dates for the work – dates which they have always met.”

In addition to using the technical team for the application process, CSL used RGVA’s expert in-house design team to make alterations to the green and white butterfly livery on the tractor units in order to fit the new Scania cab design, avoiding any distortion.

By wrapping the new vehicles, specifically the tractor units, CSL is protecting the paintwork beneath and ensuring that residual values are maintained.

RGVA’s 3M Gold-tier Select status means it is able to offer a three-year, 3M Matched Component System warranty on the work – which ties in perfectly with the amount of time the tractor units are expected to be part of CSL’s commercial fleet.

“Each of the trucks will be on the road 24/7, clocking over 200,000 km a year, delivering a wide range of goods across the UK,” says Ponsonby.

“After three years we will look to replace the tractor units, and by having wrapped the cabs we should be able to return them with the paintwork looking as good as new.”

RGVA is headquartered in Maidstone, Kent, with offices in York and Glasgow, offering full national coverage via a network of graphic technicians in fully-equipped RGVA-liveried vans.
