A cooler option for Musgrave

Musgrave Retail GB has a 100% temperature-controlled fleet, thanks to insulated vehicle manufacturer Paneltex.

When Musgrave decided to upgrade part of its 400-strong distribution fleet for Londis and Budgens retail outlets, it chose Paneltex as its business partner. Paneltex supplied Musgrave with 12 refrigerated bodies fitted on Mercedes-Benz Axor 18t rigid chassis cabs supplied by S&B Commercials; 19 refrigerated 8.2m trailers, and eight 9.2m refrigerated trailers. 

All refrigerated rigids and single-axle trailers have been specified for multi-temperature operation. Once the new vehicles are in service, the complete Musgrave distribution fleet will be 100% refrigerated, offering a choice of chilled, frozen and ambient configurations.

Musgrave Retail Partners GB LGV fleet manager Graham Thomas said: “The shorter semi trailers allow better access to many of our retail locations.”
