Multi-million-pound investments in fleet renewal and refresh

Despite the disruption of both Brexit and COVID-19, we have continued to invest heavily in our fleet, ready for any uplift in customer demand.

We remained open throughout the pandemic and continued to support customers across the country.

In anticipation of an eventual positive recovery, we invested £75 million in new stock during 2020, adding over 850 new trucks and nearly 1,000 trailers to our fleet.

In the same period, around 2,000 older vehicles were taken out of the business, with the majority moved on through Dawsondirect, our used sales arm.

Now, in 2021, we've continued this strong investment strategy and we see no reason for it slowing down. Currently, we have a further £50 million of assets on order, amounting to 700 trucks and 600 trailers – all for delivery later this year.

Our Managing Director, John Fletcher, explained: “We actually rationalised and reduced the size of our transient fleet, but it continues to be in very good shape, in terms of both numbers and quality - and ready for the recovery.

“As a result of our continued investments, the new stock added to our fleet will improve vehicle reliability, bring new models, designs, technologies and safety features to our customers, while also reduce downtime and the average age of both trucks and trailers.”

He continued: “Our business remains strong and, as the sector returns to some sort of normality, we’ll continue with our strategy of investing for the long term and helping customers bounce back from what have been exceptionally difficult times.”
