Greene King invests in greener fleet
GREENE King has taken delivery of 14 new trucks following a �1.17million investment to improve the “green” credentials of its distribution fleet.
The vehicles, which will be used by the Bury St Edmunds-based pubs and brewing company to supply customers around the UK, have been supplied by family-owned DAF dealership ChassisCab.
The order, one of the largest received so far this year by ChassisCab, which is based at Great Blakenham, near Ipswich, and also has bases in Bury St Edmunds and at Isleham in Cambridgeshire, is part of an on-going fleet replacement programme at Greene King.
Each of the 14 trucks, all DAF CF75 models, carries the livery of one of Greene King’s three leading beer brands — Old Speckled Hen, Greene King IPA and Abbot Ale. The trucks will be based at Bury St Edmunds, Nottingham and at Abingdon in Oxfordshire.
Paul Brett, fleet manager for Greene King, said: “These vehicles are incredibly fuel efficient and driver-friendly which is why we are upgrading our fleet as we strive to enhance the performance of our vehicles and drivers on the road.”
