Bevan Group has provided DX Group with 160 trucks, the first to wear the latest version of the DX Group’s livery.
DX Group’s Slough-based headquarters offer a range of next-day and scheduled delivery services covering parcel freight, secure, courier and logistics services, for both business and residential addresses throughout the UK and Ireland.
The new trucks are all based on 7.5-tonne MAN TGL chassis. They are fitted with Bevan21 bodies with aerodynamically efficient curved roofs, while their 1,000kg tuckaway tail-lifts are by DEL.
Bevan Group's Aftercare Response operation has also taken responsibility for maintaining DX Group's box bodies and tail-lifts.
Darren Bell, compliance director of DX Group, said: “I’ve only been in the business a little over a year, and this was my first experience of dealing with Bevan Group.
“I’m happy to confirm that it has surpassed all of my expectations.
“The order covered a substantial number of vehicles, but Bevan Group committed to a tight, eight-week production schedule, which it then met. It also did so without prejudicing quality, as the bodies are clearly built to a very high standard.
“Here, too, Bevan Group’s service was exceptional. The quality of the finish is first class and our new livery looks great, while the fact that we don’t have to send the vehicles to another supplier to get the decals done also contributes to the fast turnarounds.”
DX current has around 500 trucks on the road. This includes 125 tractor units and 60 rigids at 18 tonnes gvw, with the 7.5-tonners forming the basis of the fleet.
The new fleet will replace existing trucks from its headquarters in Wednesbury, and three other manufacturing facilities in the Black Country.
The company also own the St Helens-based Supertrucks, which offers glass-carrying vehicles.
