A FAMILY owned dealership has delivered more than £1 million worth of new trucks to brewing giant Greene King.

ChassisCab, which has a base in Bury St Edmunds, supplied 14 DAF CF75 trucks, which will be used for deliveries to pubs, clubs and wholesalers across the country.

The £1.17 million order is part of the pub retailer and brewer’s ongoing fleet replacement programme to keep its transport as green and efficient as possible.

It is one of the largest deliveries made so far this year by ChassisCab.

The trucks will be based in Bury, Nottingham and Abingdon, in Oxfordshire and were delivered in Greene King’s colour schemes based on its most renowned beers.

Paul Brett, fleet manager for Green 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.

“They are also compliant in terms of emissions including those which apply to The London Low Emission Zone, which is based on European rulings.

Robert Baxter, dealer principal at ChassisCab, added: “This is another prestige order for our business.

“We are extremely proud of the relationship we have built up with Greene King.

“We match up customers with the trucks that will help to give them the competitive edge, particularly where the economic downturn continues to make business owners focus more acutely on finance.

“The DAF CFs supplied have excellent driving properties and manoeuvrability which makes them ideal for this sort of distribution work where they are often delivering in tight or confined spaces.

“As they are all covered by comprehensive repair and maintenance contracts, the beer supply is always rolling.”

The company, which also has bases in Great Blakenham and Cambridgeshire, employs more than 110 staff.
