Hoyer Selects MAN For New Bowmans Contract

Transport logistics provider, Hoyer, has been awarded a new distribution agreement with Bowmans Flour – an additional contract for the ‘bulk foodstuffs’ division of the company.

Along with the new contract, Hoyer has again selected MAN as its preferred truck supplier, and already has in service 14 new TGS 26.440BLS 6x2 tractor units in the distinctive Bowmans Flour livery.

The truck fleet is acquired through MAN Financial Services and with a five-year contract maintenance agreement. The new MANs are joined by new TIP bulk tanker-trailers.

On the road, the new fleet will operate out of Bowmans’ flour mills in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, and Whitley Bridge in South Yorkshire, to locations throughout the UK.

“MAN is now a proven product in our fleet,” said Hoyer Divisional Director, David Bennett, “we are always evaluating other truck marques,” he said, “but MAN consistently provides us with the most competitive whole-life cost option.”

He continued, “Our top two operating criteria, fuel economy and reliability, are MAN qualities upon which we know we can rely.

“Existing Bowmans Flour drivers moved across from their traditional fleet to our new Hoyer-contracted fleet, and the feedback, as you might expect, has been very positive indeed.”
