Abbey Logistics expands fleet

Abbey Logistics Group, one of the UK’s largest bulk liquid and powder transport providers, has added a further 20 DAF XF and CF tractor units to its fleet, as it builds the efficiency and flexibility of its nationwide transport network.

The new vehicles will support operations serving the food ingredients, construction and non-hazardous chemical sectors, as well as providing flexible back-up to Abbey’s palletised business.

David Batty, Abbey Logistics Fleet Manager, said: “Abbey worked closely with DAF to tailor these units to suit the specialist products we transport. Safety and hygiene standards are critical to the services we provide, together with fuel efficiency, CO2 emissions and driver comfort. DAF clearly demonstrated they understood our requirements and the decision to add these new vehicles to our fleet was ultimately an easy one.”

Mike Hudson, Truck Sales Executive at supplying DAF dealer, North West Trucks, stated: “Abbey was the first UK operator to take our CF Silent low-noise tractor unit, demonstrating the company’s willingness to put its environmental credentials on the road where it matters. Our latest fleet deal is another example of working with Abbey on conquest fleets to supply solutions that meet customer requirements.”
