September 19, 2017: In a move to upgrade its vehicle fleet, supply chain giant CEVA Logistics has signed a three year lease with Dawsonrentals truck & trailer in the UK to provide 120 new vehicles.
Commencing this autumn, CEVA will introduce a series of 44 tonne IVECO Stralis tractor units into its operation to enhance efficiency, produce greater fuel economy.
The vehicles 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.
"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," states Michael O'Donoghue, CEVA's executive vice president UK, Ireland and Nordics.
John Fletcher, Dawsonrentals’ managing director, adds, "Dawsonrentals’ 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 mobilise the whole project on time within a mutually acceptable contracted price.”
