TDG expands in aviation fuel sector


TDG has invested in a new aviation fuel fleet following a deal to supply a number of airports in the UK.

The seven DAF tractor units and trailers will be based on the Isle of Grain in Essex and are fitted with the Matrix Fuelsaver engine mapping system, which is expected to cut fuel consumption by up to seven per cent.

David Heath, sector operations director, said: “We already store aviation fuel at our Dagenham terminal in Essex, but this move marks a reintroduction into the delivery market for us.

“We will be supplying a number of airports around the South East and expect this to be a growing market.”
