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.

We host regular innovation breakfast briefings across the UK, chaired by former Commercial Motor Editor-in-Chief Brian Weatherley and providing an opportunity to discuss key industry issues – including forthcoming legislation, and next-generation vehicle technology.

To request an invitation to our next innovation breakfast, and to go on the mailing list for our innovation breakfast newsletters – which follow each event – please email lorna.mcilroy@fraikin.com.

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.

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.
