Carnevale Puts Dawsongroup Iveco On The Menu

Carnevale, the Italian family-run, manufacturer, importer and national distributor of ambient and temperature controlled Italian food and drink products, has added four Iveco Daily 7.2t vehicles to its fleet.
  • Trial of vehicles, service and support as major Italian produce distributor looks at Contract Hire from Dawsongroup.
  • 7.2t Iveco Dailies customised to meet Carnevale distribution needs.
  • Vehicles join 84 strong UK fleet.

Supplied on Contract Hire by Dawsongroup truck and trailer, the 180 BHP Dailies are all 4x2 Euro 6/CAZ-compliant vehicles with Carrier Xarios 6 fridges on temperature controlled single compartment Paneltex bodies, allowing a 3.1t payload.

They also feature 8-speed auto gearboxes, rear barn doors and Ratcliff Palfinger tuck-away tail lifts.

Carnevale was formed 1966 when two young brothers, Carmine and Giovanni Carnevale, from Capracotta in Southern Italy, established the company and began manufacturing and selling mozzarella and ricotta in central London.

Today, Carnevale’s wide range of premium products is distributed across the UK from its six depots through its own 84-strong multi-temperature fleet that includes 26t, 7.5t and 3.5t vehicles.

The company remains a family-run business, with many of the family’s second generation now supporting the growth of the operation which has become a leader in the field.

The move to contract hire through Dawsongroup, says Carnevale Transport Manager, Ben Ayrton, “Gives us the opportunity both of trialling these Iveco Daily 7.2T vehicles and seeing how the Dawsongroup service and maintenance contract can help support our operations. We are still in the infancy of the contract, but the vehicles are out working and service experience so far has been very responsive when needed. The vehicles provided by Dawsongroup were all customised to our specific business needs which is making a huge difference.”
