Trailer Growth in Partnership – S&R Smith & Son Logistics

Having surpassed over 40 years in the commercial leasing and finance marketplace, Hireco work very closely with customers, to discover what it is they are looking for from a partnership.

“In each of our partnerships, there is always something different we offer” Chris Heather, UK Sales Manager at Hireco explains, “we ensure every solution is focused on meeting the business goals and strategies which have been a critical factor to ensure growth year on year.”

One example of this would be S&R Smith & Son Logistics. Hireco have been partnering with the long-established specialist distribution company since 2007, to deliver fast moving consumer goods for a number of UK brands across the country.

Similar to Hireco, S&R Smith & Son Logistics is far from its modest routes of just two rigid flat back vehicles in 1949; Hireco now supply the business with over 120 trailers.

“Since the start, Hireco have been a tremendous support to our business, I can rely on them year on year to supply us with brand new equipment, to our specification, on a contract hire solution tailored to suit our business model. Our equipment always needs to be of a very high standard to meet our customers expectations.”

— The third generation owner of S&R Smith & Son Logistics, Lee Smith.

“We take responsibility ensuring their fleet is always at peak performance. Not only through our strong service and maintenance provision, but also through identifying older equipment and smoothly replacing it with new. This takes the hassle away from disposal at the end of the term.”

— Hireco UK Rental Manager, Chris Heather.

“We’re always eager to continue evolving as a business and I’m looking forward to continuing our professional relationship over the coming years.”

— Hireco Group CEO, James Smith.
