Corporate Solutions takes 24 London legal trucks from Alltruck 20 May 2014

Corporate Solutions Logistics has signed a 36-month deal with contract hire and rental specialist Alltruck for 12 DAF XF and 12 Mercedes-Benz New Actros tractors, including full maintenance and back-up.

The firm, which provides managed supply chain services nationwide, made the decision to work with East Midlands-based Alltruck to support growth in its contract with supermarket chain Lidl.

The trucks selected are DAF Super Space FTG XF 105s (510bhp) and Mercedes Benz Mega Space Actros 25-46 (460bhp) 6s2 tractor units. All will run at 44-tonne gvw and are expected to cover up to 200,000km per year.

"The original deal ... was for 12 tractor units," says Corporate Solutions sales director Mark Ponsonby. "However, we were so impressed ... that we extended this order to include another 12."

Since all the trucks will be operating in and around London, each has been specified to be fully 'London Legal' – including the fitment of nearside camera systems to deal with drivers' blind spots.

Alltruck managing director Paul Robinson explains that the vehicles have also been fitted front and rear camera systems to help drivers in coupling-up and provide further protection and safety.

"We are delighted to have found a new business partner in Corporate Solutions Logistics," states Robinson.

"The fact that they have extended their order based on the levels of service they have received is testament to the hard work and dedication of the Alltruck team."

Corporate Solutions' new trucks will collect from Lidl distribution centres at Lutterworth, in Leicestershire, and Belvedere in Kent, and deliver to stores throughout the Midlands and London.
