Fly By Nite, the international transport and logistics haulier for the entertainment and events industry, has added another five DAF XF 480 FT low-deck tractor units to its high-profile fleet.
The 4×2 trucks, all fleet additions, join around 160 tractors and rigids based at the Fly By Nite centre of operations in Redditch. The centre is also home to a fleet of 150 flat-floor Megacube box and curtain-side trailers.
Outside, the new DAFs have also been fitted with forward and near-side cameras, as well as audible turning warnings. Though very little of the operator’s work is London-centred, the specification comfortably fits the proposed Safe System Permit requirements.
Richard Brown, Transport Manager at Fly By Nite, said, “It just makes sense to us. The work we do is very specialised, so being equipped to high standards on the safety front comes into its own every time. Especially when we’re operating in and around large crowds of people who might not be paying the greatest attention to their own safety.”
