Solomon proves to be best of the bunch for Flower Freight

Solomon Commercials has continued its long-standing relationship with Flower Freight by providing the Enfield-based company with a new 12-tonne Volvo FL 240 temperature-controlled vehicle.

Flower Freight has been working with Solomon Commercials for more than six years, and its partnership has seen the market leader in temperature-controlled vehicles deliver a fleet of approximately ten vehicles ranging from 3.5 tonnes to 12 tonnes.

For over 20 years, Flower Freight, which specialises in distributing cut flowers and plants, has established itself as the vital link in the supply chain from Dutch exporters to UK florists, wholesalers and garden centres.

The latest addition to the Flower Freight fleet is a Volvo chassis, plated at 12 tonne, fitted with a Carrier, Xarios 600, direct drive refrigeration unit and a Dhollandia retractable tail-lift and, as with most vehicles now provided through Solomon Commercials, it was supplied with whole vehicle type approval.

Solomon designed and manufactured a bespoke, seven-metre body with 3D roof deflector and cab side streamers to optimise aerodynamics that enables Flower Freight to transport plants across the UK, ensuring they arrive at their destination in the best condition and in the most economical way.

Fred Jansen, Flower Freight’s Director, said: “We see the team at Solomon as critical to our business’ success as we need the right vehicle to ensure customers receive our products in the best condition, but it’s more than that. The team provides us with knowledge and advice, ensuring we’re getting the best out of the vehicle – the smallest innovation can make a big difference, and it’s what we rely on from Solomon.”

Ian Lang, sales manager at Solomon Commercials, added: “It’s a pleasure to continue our long-standing partnership with Flower Freight. Since the business was established, it has carved out an enviable reputation as a company that provides a pivotal function for its horticulture and retail clients.

“We enjoy working with Fred and his team and look forward to delivering vehicles that help them get their products from a to b, quickly and in the best condition, ready for sale.”
