Operator in it for the long haul with Ryder10 August 2017

Transport and haulage firm Longs of Leeds has taken delivery of 50 DAF tractors and 40 SDC curtainsider trailers, all supplied through Ryder and featuring the operator’s new livery.

The DAF XF460 tractors are fitted with AS Tronic transmissions and have Super Space Cabs – and are Longs of Leeds’ first Euro VI vehicles.

“We invested heavily in the latter stages of Euro V so we weren’t into Euro VI early, allowing the technology to bed in,” explains director Andrew Long.

“We are currently carrying out comprehensive driver and technician training in conjunction with DAF.”

The order is the third that Longs has placed with Ryder. The vehicles are based at the operator’s Leeds and Hull depots and will be maintained at a mix of Ryder and in-house workshops.
