Asset Alliance Group has delivered a fleet of 56 new tractor units to Cross Transport, for operation on its contract with leading e-commerce business, Amazon.

The full-service contract hire deal, valued at approximately £4.5 million, sees the supply of a new fleet of DAF XF tractors with Super Space Cabs, replacing older assets.

Dean Cross, Managing Director at Cross Transport, said, “This is a substantial order for a key part of our business, and we’re very pleased to have Asset Alliance Group’s support.

“In the time we’ve worked together, they’ve shown they understand our business needs perfectly. Initially, the Amazon contract required a bigger fleet – and fast – and Asset Alliance Group came through and delivered.”

Each new DAF is expected to cover 140,000 kilometres annually, with the contract hire agreement including all safety inspections, maintenance, servicing and repairs – covered by a single monthly payment. They will support Cross Transport’s contract with Amazon, delivering customer orders throughout the UK and Europe from its Nuneaton depot.
