Ryder supplies trucks to ‘panic delivery fleet’

Boston- based chilled and frozen transport operator HS Logistics has added two 7.5 tonne reefer trucks to its “panic delivery fleet”.

The DAF LF 45.180 trucks, which are on contract hire from Ryder, are fitted with sleeper cabs and custom-designed single compartment Paneltech bodies.

“The new trucks, which were designed to carry up to seven pallets, are used primarily to facilitate the delivery of last minute orders and missed loads that cannot be economically handled by larger trucks, said HS Logistics’ transport director Brian Hilton.

“With all large supermarket chains and distribution hubs operating on a just-in-time basis, our special 7.5 tonne fridge trucks are ideal for handling panic deliveries.”
