Regional DAF truck dealership Chassis Cab has delivered 25 new vehicles to Felixstowe-based container haulage specialist Seven Lincs.
The £2.3million order continues a long-term relationship between the businesses, under which Chassis Cab has supplied around 100 new DAF LF trucks over the past year.
The latest order involves the DAF XF model, featuring the Euro 6 engine which offers new standards in terms of fuel efficiency and low emissions.
Seven Lincs, whose container transport fleet includes more than 100 44-tonne vehicles and 120 slider trailers, is part of the Ipswich-based Seven Asset Management group.
Tim Forman, managing director of Seven Asset Management, said: “These DAF trucks are partly for renewal and partly to cope with the expansion of business as we are finding that business has been particularly buoyant in recent months and we are seeing no signs of that changing into the future.
