One of the UK’s largest independent Pharmaceutical wholesalers, Lexon UK, has completed a replacement programme for its 130 strong Chemist and Druggist delivery fleet. Founded in 1995, Lexon UK has rapidly grown to service the UK’s independent Pharmacy and Chemists sector, supplying over 8,000 SKUs across dressings, generic and parallel import drugs and medicines including nutritional supplements.
Operating from four distribution hubs, an MHRA audited facility at Redditch, and warehouses in Leeds, Ferry Hill – County Durham, and East Kilbride, Scotland, the company is looking to grow its business further.
Supplied by Manchester-based Coolfreeze UK, the Ford Transit, Iveco Daily and Fiat Ducato fleet uses Hubbard’s SFZ008 and SFZ009 invisible refrigerated units and were supplied in a two-year window.
Yogesh Patel, RP (Responsible Person), Lexon UK, explains the choice of invisible units: “These units precisely suit our product range and delivery requirements, each vehicle is on the road in Metropolitan and rural areas for three hours daily, with up to 20 door openings per delivery round.
Backed by Hubbard’s service program we can be assured that our delivery service remains second to none for the independent Pharmacies, Chemists and Druggists we supply. National maintenance service is critical and the innovative nature of ‘invisible refrigeration’
matches our brand positioning with our customers”.
Lexon UK also supplies Branded and Veterinary medication and offers specialist skills including assembly and over-labelling of specific quantity and multi-product packs for
Hospitals from its Redditch site.
The Hubbard Invisible range is designed for discreet and efficient transportation of refrigerated products in vans. The units are installed beneath the vehicle’s chassis, completely invisible from the outside, preserving the aesthetics, original height and aerodynamics of the vehicle, while reducing bodywork.
Hubbard SFZ008 and SFZ009 offer varying refrigeration capacities and volume ratings tuned for different applications. SFZ009 Multi features dual evaporators to enable products with different temperature requirements to be transported in two separate zones.
The Invisible range, with its ultra-thin dimensions, make it the ideal choice for customers who need a space-saving solution.
A driver-friendly interface in the cabin allows real-time monitoring and control of the unit performance to ensure the cargo is maintained at precisely the right temperature throughout the trip.
