MENU: Domino’s go Refrigerental
Domino’s Pizza are reaping the benefits of additional 26tonne dual temperature refrigerated trucks from Burnt Tree’s Refrigerental division.
The pizza company captured the vehicles in expectation of their traditional post-Christmas spike in demand, with all rented models DAF CF75.310 6×2 rigids.
They are also all fitted with dual-compartment refrigerated bodies built to ATP Class C Standard and feature Carrier Supra Silent 1150MT multi-temperature refrigeration systems.
Each truck also has a near side pallet width side door, as well as double rear doors and a 1,500kg retractable tail lift.
“This is the first time that we have used Burnt Tree’s Refrigerental operation and the service we have received so far has been first class.”

John Lee, Group Transport Manager at Domino’s Pizza, said: “This is the first time that we have used Burnt Tree’s Refrigerental operation and the service we have received so far has been first class.
“As the year develops, we will be looking to further extend this working relationship with Refrigerental as we see them as a positive addition to our vehicle supplier programme.”
Domino’s currently run a 100% refrigerated 60-strong distribution fleet, with each franchised store receiving three deliveries every week.
The 26tonne DAF rigids supplied by Refrigerental deliver Domino’s own in-house dough for the pizza bases, alongside topping stocks and all retail packaging.
They are currently based at the company’s main production facility at Milton Keynes.
Mark Howell, Contract Hire and Refrigerental Director at Burnt Tree, said: “When we first launched Refrigerental towards the end of 2013, there was tremendous initial interest in this move into temperature controlled vehicle rental by Burnt Tree.
“This interest has subsequently been converted into considerable new business, as we have been successful in developing many new working partnerships.
“It’s pleasing to see major brands, such as Domino’s, responding so positively to our fresh approach to temperature controlled vehicle rental.”
