Supplied by dealer Imperial Commercials, in Cumbernauld, the Airdrie-based operator’s latest addition has the Super Space cab and is specified with the ‘Exclusive’ leather trim package as well as a roof-mounted air conditioning pod for driver comfort.
AMG’s fleet delivers fish to Billingsgate market, in London, to Birmingham Market and to Heathrow airport for export.
“I have driven and trialled all the major premium marques, but for me the DAF has the most comfortable cab and, in these days of driver shortages, that is important to me,” says Andy McGonnagle, owner of AMG Transport.
All six DAFs in the fleet have a forward-facing camera and telematics system, which came into its own recently after one vehicle was involved in a serious collision that closed the M6. “Thanks to the camera, we could show clearly that it was not our driver’s fault. That’s a big insurance saving, as well as protecting our reputation,” says McGonnagle.
AMG’s tractors are acquired with funding from Paccar Financial. Service and maintenance is carried out by the dealer, with McGonnagle commenting: “Local dealer support is very important for any smaller fleet operator. We get great service from Imperial Commercials and they add a real plus to our choice of DAF.”
