Fleet expansion for Abbey Logistics

Abbey Logistics Group, one of the UK’s largest bulk liquid and powder transport providers has expanded its fleet with the addition of 20 DAF XF and CF tractor units, as it continues to increase 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 and also provide flexible support to Abbey’s palletised business.

“Abbey worked closely with DAF to tailor these units to suit the specialist products we transport,” said David Batty, Abbey Logistics fleet manager.

“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.”

“We’re naturally delighted to continue our strong partnership with Abbey Logistics,” said, Mike Hudson, truck sales executive at supplying DAF Dealer, North West Trucks.

“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.”
