New DAFs for Keedwell Scotland

23 November 2023 #Tractor #Truck

Logistics firm Keedwell Scotland has taken delivery of 11 new DAF LF 230 curtainsider rigids and two DAF XG 530 6×2 tractor units as part of a fleet renewal programme.

Supplied on a three-year contract hire deal from Asset Alliance, the 18-tonne rigids will be based at the company’s Bothwell and Grangemouth depots and deployed on contracts for The Pallet Network across Scotland.

The two larger DAF tractor units are being used for trunking jobs throughout the UK and servicing a contract for Tennent’s Lager.

Keedwell Scotland also took two DAF XG 530 tractor units from Asset Alliance last year.

The new arrivals join a fleet of 35 trucks and 45 trailers at the haulier, which runs a third depot in Tannochside.

With more than 25 years of experience in logistics, Keedwell Scotland’s services also include warehousing and distribution, and same day delivery.

The logistics firm has also taken Asset Alliance’s full maintenance package, which means it gets like-for-like replacements for any repairs needed.

John McLellan, Keedwell Scotland Operations Director, said: “We chose the DAF LFs for their versatility because they can be used for city centre deliveries, and also delivering animal feed and other heavy products in rural locations.

“Keeping the wheels turning is critical for our business. The LFs are also exceptionally reliable even though we work them hard from Monday to Friday.

“When you have a vehicle off the road for two or three days at a time it’s a huge inconvenience for the company and our customers.”
