Knowledge Zone

Welcome to the Fraikin ‘knowledge zone’, packed full of advice, expertise and useful links to help you extract the maximum potential from your commercial vehicle fleet.

INNOVATION INSIGHT MEETINGS

We were delighted to host our latest Innovation Insight meeting in Warwickshire recently.  Chaired by former Commercial Motor Editor-in-Chief Brian Weatherley, we welcomed two guest speakers to an informal round-the-table meeting where a select group of customers and others discussed key industry issues – primarily centred around emissions and clean air.

A short report on the meeting is now available. – click here

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW GUIDEBOOKS

With new legislation affecting the road transport industry being introduced all the time, Fraikin has created a series of short, informative guides that tackle a variety of the most relevant topics.  These guides are independently written and aim to give the reader an overview of the subject concerned, giving the main information points, so that individuals can have a rounded view of the topic.

The latest addition to the library is about Alternative Fuels – a very relevant subject in today’s market.

Please click below to download a digital copy of the guides.  If you would like a printed copy of any of the guides, please email –  lorna.mcilroy@fraikin.com.

Strong Track Record

Fraikin brought its fleet expertise to the UK in 1978, and today we are one of the country’s largest providers of commercial vehicle contract hire, fleet management and rental. We offer customers a skills base and proven financial stability which we believe is second to none. This allows us to react to even the largest of new business opportunities in a sole supplier role, and with a customer renewal rate which is the envy of our competitors.
