New Tractor Units for British Sugar Logistics Contract

Eleven brand new tractor units have been added to the British Sugar logistics contract fleet and went into service in late December.

The new vehicles are part of a wider fleet replacement scheme to replace older units with more efficient and comfortable trucks to ensure an efficient and reliable service for our customers, and a pleasant working environment for our drivers.

The trucks are from manufacturer DAF and will be distributing bulk liquid and powder sugar products throughout the UK on a 24/7 basis.

The DAF Space Cabs are FORS silver compliant and include numerous features for operational safety and driver comfort including luxury air-suspended adjustable highbacked driving seats, fridges, and superior sleeping and storage facilities.

Matthew Male, Abbey Logistics’ Finance Director said, “Bulk road tanker logistics is a very specialist area and our ability to recruit and retain the very best drivers is crucial for us to deliver the highest levels of service to our customers.

“Our fleet management team has sourced the most appropriate vehicles for our drivers and this important contract. Collaborating with the customer to understand the requirements and address a number of challenges specific to this contract, enabling us to future-proof this fleet.”
