ASHBY-DE-LA-ZOUCH, UK: CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s largest supply chain management companies, is rolling up 120 new vehicles to its customers in the UK to enhance efficiency and provide better service to them.

The company through a three-year lease with Dawson rentals, truck & trailer in the UK will introduce a series of IVECO Stralis tractor units into its operation this autumn.

“We believe that our customers’ deliveries should be undertaken using the most modern and efficient equipment. By adding these state-of-the-art vehicles to our fleet, we will be able to operate with the very best equipment and enable us to manage our customers’ supply chains to the highest possible standards,” said CEVA’s Executive Vice President UK, Ireland and Nordic s M i c h a e l O’Donoghue.

The new tractors produce greater fuel economy and increase focus on sustainability through minimizing the impact of its fleet on the environment.

The 44-ton gross vehicle weight vehicles are each fitted with sleeper cabs and will be distributed throughout the second half of this year across a number of CEVA’s operations, including in the consumer retail, automotive and healthcare sectors.

Dawson Rentals Managing Director John Fletcher said: “Dawson rentals’ unique structure means we can react quickly to customer needs. Having understood CEVA’s focus on reliability, support and fuel performance, both for economy and environmental reasons, we were able to recommend the right vehicle package, and as importantly, move fast to secure trucks with a very specific spec and mobilize the whole project on time within a mutually acceptable contracted price.”
