TNT Newsfast upgrades its expanding fleet

TNT Newsfast, incorporating TNT Network Logistics, has taken delivery of 327 new vehicles as it continues to invest in its expanding business. A number of recent contracts, as well as the work for TNT Mail, as allowed the company to invest in expansion.

“We keep winning new contracts for our shared-user business so we need to add new vehicles to the fleet,” says David Bermingham, managing director.

TNT Newsfast says that the last batch of the new vehicles, totalling 188, have been fitted with the Masternaut vehicle tracking system which will feature on all new vehicle purchases over the next few years. Bermingham said that: “There is nothing more time-sensitive than newspapers. The publishers have only one chance to sell a daily newspaper.”

The 800 vehicle fleet is made up of 44 tonne tractor units from MAN, Mercedes and Scania, and 18 tonne rigids from MAN and DAF.
