Local transport company collaboration continues for another year

Somerset based C&D South West Ltd, has continued its relationship with long-standing client Arada Stoves in the form of more dual branded vehicles being added to their fleet.

At the end of last year, C&D signed another two-year distribution contract with the UK’s leading Devon-based stove manufacturers, Arada Stoves. C&D South West has been working with Arada since 2016 and has jointly commissioned two dual-branded curtain sides for a 3.5-tonne van and a 26-tonne rigid lorry that will showcase their respective brands as the vehicles travel across the southwest and beyond.

Lorna Hammond, Managing Director of C&D South West Ltd, said: “Arada Stoves have been a much-loved client for many years now and it’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of the C&D team that has allowed our relationship to continue.

“Their products bear the hallmarks of being designed, engineered and built in Britain by people who take pride in a job well done, and it’s important that we here at C&D reflect these values throughout the entire transportation process, right up to the point of delivery.

“Having such a prestigious brand emblazoned on our vehicles is a demonstration of our commitment to each other’s future success and furthermore, creates exposure for the company that will undoubtedly drive sales.”

Jon Butterworth, Director at Arada Stoves, added: ““We have established a high degree of trust in C&D South West, and we know that they deliver a first-class service over all aspects of our relationship and underpin our growth strategy of delivering service excellence.

“The joint branding of the C&D vehicles gives us an incredible amount of exposure as their vehicles take our products to customers from our depot in Devon right across the UK, and we’re incredibly impressed with the way that they look”

The jointly branded vehicles are already hitting the region’s roads and are expected to have a direct impact on customer engagement as they travel the length and breadth of the UK.
