Suffolk DAF dealer Chassi Club supplies haulage firm Turners of Soham with 700th specialised truck.

Long-established Suffolk-based DAF dealer Chassis Cab has delivered its 700th specialsied DAF XF 450 FTP truck to UK logistics firm Turners (Soham).

The Cambridgeshire based haulage firm is the largest privately-owned logistics company in the UK and is thought to be the largest operator of DAF FTP models of tractor units worldwide.

Robert Baxter, dealer principal at Chassis Cab said: “We are extremely proud of this long association with Turners. The business has created its own success by optimising operating costs through continued investment in new trucks and its operational facilities. This is a family business that is always ready for the ever-increasing demands of the modern logistics environment.”

DAF Trucks is celebrating 90 Years of Innovative Transport Solutions during 2018. Last year, the business had 29.5% of the new truck market in the UK.

It has been market leader for the past 23 years consecutively for the 6 tonnes truck sector.

Chassis Cab has bases at Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge.

Chassis Cab is a family owned business that has been the main DAF dealer for Suffolk since the early 1990s; and for Cambridgeshire since 2014 maintaining the dealership’s status as the only HGV commercial franchise located within Cambridge. Starting out as a commercial vehicle accident repair centre, Chassis Cab has grown to become one of the premier dealers for DAF and a leading supplier of trucks in the region.
