Chassis Cab has just delivered 25 new trucks worth £2.3 million to container company Seven Lincs.

The order for the DAF XF Euro 6 trucks was the result of a long term business relationship between Chassis Cab and Seven Lincs, which ran a month-long trial with one of the first of the new vehicles, which complies with the latest Euro 6 emission regulations.

Chassis Cab was begun by Bury St Edmunds motor-repair centre owner, the late David Ruffles, and now has premises in Northern Way in Bury, Great Blakenham, Cambridge and Isleham.

Seven Lincs, with a two-acre site at Felixstowe, is part of the Seven Asset Group whose managing director Tim Forman said: “The Euro 6 engine is at the forefront of new truck technology. It runs super-clean and so we are confident that we are buying the right trucks to minimise the environmental impact of our business.”
