Geodis Calberson selects Euroway and DAF for European fleet 15 February 2010

High Wycombe-based distribution firm Geodis Calberson has taken delivery of five DAF XF105 FTG 6x2 tractor units, bringing its UK fleet to 38 tractors and rigids, with a mix of 59 single and double deck trailers.

Euroway supplied the firm's new trucks on four-year contract hire including FleetSure fleet maintenance.

The vehicles were specified for certain ADR HazChem operations, working as part of the Geodis's European HazChem network.

Also, since all of these trucks will be operating between the UK and mainland Europe, distributing high-value goods and with estimated annual mileages exceeding 175,000km, they were equipped with DAF's Superspace cab.

They also have DAF's Astronic transmission, as well as integrated satellite tracking and Bluetooth phone connection.

Geodis Calberson director Ray Cook says: "With the pan European nature of our distribution, consistent reliable 24/7 support is key to success. This is where Euroway scores highly, with its single point of contact FleetSure."
