Owner of Sydney-based refrigerated transport business Freezex, Luke Howard-Bath, has reduced running costs and increased productivity with the introduction of new Maxi-CUBE refrigerated vans.
Freezex, has been servicing the New South Wales transport sector for over three decades.
It began as a small transport business created by Leslie and Sandy Howard-Bath and has become a well-established name in the NSW temperature-controlled transport sector.
Current owner and managing director, Luke Howard-Bath, joined the family-run business in 2008 and has never looked back.
He began by moving a select number of products across the city. Today, the business transports a range of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) including dairy, fresh and frozen baked goods, produce, flowers, frozen seafood and meat.
Its core services include temperature-controlled transport, warehouse management, cross docking and freight forwarding. Freezex transports over 500 pallets of perishable products daily throughout NSW for a range of small and big companies.
One of the key principles the company operates on is reliability. For that, they need quality equipment to deliver the level of service and consistency that they are known for. Freezex has close to 60 vehicles including trucks, trailers and smaller vehicles operating within its fleet.
As part of an ongoing move to upgrade its equipment, the company recently purchased two new 22-pallet Maxi-CUBE Classic Refrigerated trailers from MaxiTRANS.
“The trailers are very well-built and hold the temperature very well, which helps us save on running costs. They are very efficient units,” Howard-Bath said.
The Maxi-CUBE range delivers outstanding performance without comprising on tare weight, which results in better payload and fuel efficiency for operators. The range is designed and manufactured locally, which is beneficial when keeping in mind the tough Australian road and weather conditions.
