Rob Carter, Greene King distribution centre manager, said: “We deliver to more than 1,400 customers per week from our distribution depot in Bury St Edmunds and these vehicles will be used for dray deliveries across East Anglia, Central, North and East London, and the northern Home Counties.

“We chose Ryder because we wanted added features for our draymen; they listened to this and came back with a great solution. We have operated Daf vehicles for a number of years as we have always found them to be reliable and fuel efficient, and these particular vehicles have additional features that make it easier and safer for our dray drivers to off-load casks, kegs, and packaged drinks.”
