Ryder supplies nine customised DAFs to brewer Greene King

Greene King DAFs

Ryder is supplying nine DAF CFs to Greene King after securing a six-year supply and full service lease deal with the brewer.

The customised trucks will be the first in the Greene King fleet to feature its London Glory beer branding, alongside branding for its other leading ales, Greene King IPA and Abbot Ale.

The 26t 6x2 rigids have Don-Bur curtainsided bodies mounted on a three-axle chassis with day cab.

The fully-galvanised bodies are 9m long by 2.5m wide and 3.5m in height, with an 8.8m by 2.2m side aperture.

Features include: EN12642 XL accredited load restraint system; cargo control internal curtain system made from mesh for load visibility; storage racks for up to nine gas cylinders; 200mm-deep galvanised side guards; and drop rings along the side of the body to allow roping of beer kegs.

Rob Carter, Greene King distribution centre manager, said: "We deliver to more than 1,400 customers per week from our distribution depot in Bury St Edmunds and these vehicles will be used for dray deliveries across East Anglia, Central, North and East London, and the northern Home Counties.

"We chose Ryder because we wanted added features for our draymen; they listened to this and came back with a great solution.

"These particular vehicles have additional features that make it easier and safer for our dray drivers to off-load casks, kegs, and packaged drinks."
