HGV demand doubles

Contract hires for HGVs have almost doubled this year, according to vehicle services firm Motiva Group, which reckons this is a strong sign that the UK economy is on the up.

“There has been a definite turnaround within a 12-month period with companies now showing much greater demand for new trucks on their fleet.

“It’s a particularly positive and concrete sign that the UK economy is starting to move in the right direction,” said managing director, Peter Davenport.
