ArrowXL, the UK’s largest and longest established two-person home delivery specialist, has invested a significant £5 million into its fleet of delivery vehicles. Seventy-five 7.5 tonne built-to-order DAF LF trucks will replace 50 existing vehicles and add 25 to the growing fleet across sites nationwide.
The new vehicles have an increased payload which will play a crucial role in building on the productivity and sustainability of ArrowXL’s operations, significantly reducing Co2 emissions. The PACCAR engines provide higher outputs and greater torque, whilst reducing fuel consumption and feature Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to meet the Euro 4 and Euro 5 emission standards.
Louise White, National Fleet Compliance and Admin Manager at ArrowXL commented: “The new DAF LF trucks were chosen specifically for their size and fuel efficiency to provide the company with much needed additional capacity to cope with our growing client demand. With driver safety a key commitment the vehicles feature front and rear facing cameras and are equipped with a resilient tail lift designed to support the safe handling of a broad range of heavy and large consumer products.”
