The trucks, which replace Mercedes-Benz Actros tractor units also provided through Asset Alliance, will handle long-distance temperature-controlled trunking work throughout the UK.
Specified with DAF’s Super Space Cab, the new arrivals join a mixed fleet of 37 DAF, Scania and Volvo trucks at the Lanark-based sister haulage operators, which handle 300 deliveries every week.
“We have a great relationship with Asset Alliance, and as repeat customers, we’ve come to appreciate the company’s honest, open and straightforward approach to business,” states JHP Transport managing director Jim Prentice.
“We particularly value a full-service contract hire agreement, as the fixed-price monthly payments make it easier to manage a vehicle’s lifetime costs,” he continues.
“[They also] provide us with both increased cash flow, and what is effectively a warranty on the vehicles for the full three-year term.”
Prentice adds that there are no hidden charges: “Everything is above-board, and that gives us peace of mind that, as the contract continues, we’ll enjoy a consistently high level of customer service.”
