The King’s Lynn branch of Ford & Slater has supplied long-standing customer GE-BE Transport with four new DAF CF 340s.
GE-BE purchased the 6×2 rear-lift curtain-sided trucks specifically for work on a new contract transporting and delivering industrial coldrooms. The operator has a mixed fleet of about 54 trucks, with 40 DAFs purchased from Ford & Slater, as well as 75 trailers.
General Manager for GE-BE, Jay Goldspink said: “We replenish our fleet every five years or so, but towards the end of last year GE-BE won a large contract which required investment in new vehicles. “The CFs were mainly chosen for the weight they could carry and Ford & Slater were able to arrange for Moffett lifts to be installed prior to delivery, meaning our trucks were job-ready on arrival.
“Our director is a DAF man through and through, so Ford & Slater is always at the top of our list. “We have always been very happy with the trucks, the service and maintenance, and the convenient location of their Kings Lynn dealership.” The two companies have worked together since GE-BE was founded in 1982.
