Asset Alliance Group has won a contract to supply container haulage specialist Cardiff Container Link with five new DAF XF 530 tractor units initially on a two-year, full maintenance contract hire basis.
The asset finance, contract hire and fleet management solutions specialist beat four competitors to secure the work after the haulier issued a tender. Cardiff Container link’s fleet is now 13 – all DAF tractor units that transport up to 400 containers each week to major UK ports.
Procurement, transport and compliance manager for Cardiff Container Link, Brian Nicholls, said the full R&M support package provided by Asset Alliance makes forward planning and budgeting simple, and the contract hire terms give it the flexibility to upgrade again in two years’ time.
He added: “Asset Alliance Group put together the most competitive deal with the fastest turnaround and the sales team bent over backwards to help us in every way, even ensuring light bars and livery were added to the units just before delivery when our usual supplier let us down.
“Within 24 hours of signing the paperwork, we had delivery dates for the new units and now they are in service, customers have already commented on how smart they are.”
