Ferryspeed takes four Euro-5 Dafs under derogation

  • By Ashleigh Wight

Portsmouth-based Ferryspeed has taken delivery of four new Euro-5 Daf CF tractor units, ordered last year under derogation.

The new vehicles have boosted the size of its dedicated Palletways fleet to 15 trucks, taking the total number of vehicles the company runs to more than 400.

Dave Houghton, depot principal for Palletways at Ferryspeed, told that the operator wanted to invest heavily in Euro-5 trucks before Euro-6 came in this year. It does not currently plan to buy any Euro-6 trucks.

The Dafs were added to the fleet following increased demand from UK-based and international customers, and will be coupeld with curtain-sided trailers.

To replace some of its aging fleet, Ferryspeed also put around 25 Daf trucks into operation last year.

“This investment in new vehicles not only demonstrates the growth of our mainland operations, but also our commitment to efficiently resourcing the pallet distribution service to meet and exceed existing customers’ requirements,” said Houghton.

Ferryspeed covers the mainland PO postcode for Palletways and also has sites in Rugby, Jersey and Guernsey.
