Regional DAF truck dealership Chassis Cab has delivered a fleet of new vehicles together worth nearly £1million to family-owned logistics business Parkside Warehousing and Transport.

Parkside, which has bases in Stowmarket and Ipswich and provides storage, cargo handling, freight forwarding and transport services, has renewed its entire fleet with an order for nine new DAF XF Euro 6 460 Super Space Cab trucks.

Chassis Cab, which has bases in the Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge areas, has previously supplied Parkside with individual rental truck to supplement its old fleet.

Daryl Bridges, transport manager at Parkside, said: “The latest technology Euro 6 engines are the best and most fuel efficient trucks ever, and transport efficiency is critical to us and to our customers. Everything affects profitability and these new trucks will give our business a new edge.”

“We are delighted with our new and improved fleet, and are now ready for whatever new business opportunities come our way in the future.”

Chassis Cab sales manager David Scarff added: “Parkside is a highly-reputable family business with a hugely loyal employee and customer base. The drivers will be very happy with the new Super Space cabs which give hugely enhanced driver experience.

“And, with an exceptional servicing and maintenance contract in place, customers will benefit from the fact that their goods will always be where they need to be, when they need to be there.”
