UK-based two-person delivery specialist ArrowXL has invested £5m (US$6.3m) in replacing its existing 50-strong fleet with 75 new 7.5-ton customized DAF LF trucks.
The new vehicles have an increased payload, helping to reduce overall CO2 emissions with fewer journeys made. The PACCAR engines provide higher outputs and greater torque, while reducing fuel consumption. They also 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.”
