CJ Lang & Son Ltd, SPAR wholesaler in Scotland, has recently taken delivery of the four latest additions to their vehicle fleet, ready to be deployed for deliveries to SPAR stores and communities the length and breadth of Scotland.

The bespoke-built Gray and Adams refrigerated boxes are combined with brand new Scania P320 vehicles and new Dhollandia underslung tail-lifts.

Combined with these vehicles, CJ Lang is the first company in the UK to incorporate the very latest Thermo-King V-1000 engineless refrigeration units as part of their continued drive to reduce their impact on the environment. These are in addition to the 12 new trailers introduced into the fleet earlier this year with the latest hybrid technology Thermo-King A-400 Advancer refrigeration units.

Ian Fleming, Transport Operations Manager at CJ Lang & Son said, “We are proud to work with all of our transport fleet partners to bring these new vehicles into our business. The service and support provided by Scania, Gray and Adams, Dhollandia and Thermo-King are second to none and help us ensure we keep our fleet moving to provide a first-class service to our customers. Reducing our emissions is a key part of our Transport Strategy, and these new vehicles and refrigeration units will help us take another step forward on that journey.”

CJ Lang has a fleet of 59 vehicles made up of a mixture of prime movers, trailers and drawbars.
