UK-based container shipping specialist invests in new vehicles ahead of planned move into new markets

AIM Logistics has expanded its 50-strong vehicle fleet with the addition of three Krone Cool Liners.

Established in 2004 with just two vehicles, the temperature-controlled container shipping specialist has plans for further development on an international scale: Ireland is targeted in the near future, followed by Spain, Italy and Portugal.

The firm’s director, Ismail Elmagdoub, said that they picked the new vehicles with the continental expansion in mind: “These trailers fit well with our commercial plan and are well proven in the European market,” he said.

Elmagdoub added: “When we started, our mantra was all about customer service and it still remains central to our operation today. In 2004, our clients were able to communicate at all levels, from driver to director, and after 10 years of year-on-year growth, that remains the case.”

AIM Logistics, which is headquartered in Worcestershire, is expecting to experience low-running costs and an eventual high-residual value for the Cool Liners.
