Bevan Group has built 160 truck bodies for DX Group, all based on 7.5-tonne MAN TGL chassis.
The Bevan21 bodies have aerodynamically efficient curved roofs, while their 1,000kg tuckaway tail-lifts are by DEL. Bevan Group committed to an eight-week production schedule for the trucks, which it then met, with its graphics depot division finishing off the vehicles.
Bevan’s aftercare response operation has now assumed responsibility for the maintenance of the box bodies and tail-lifts. DX Group Fleet & Compliance Director Darren Bell said: “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.
“The market for dry freight box bodies is very competitive, but as Bevan Group were already a trusted partner of this business I decided to see how they performed, then consider whether we needed to do anything differently next time. I’m glad I did so because not only was the work completed to a very high standard and within the required timeframe, but Bevan Group’s flexible, ‘one-stop shop’ service also made life very straightforward from an administrative perspective.
“To cap it all, Managing Director Anthony Bevan and his colleagues are nice, easy people to work with, so we look forward to doing so again in the future.”
