Richard Read opts for DAF trucks

Haulier company Richard Read Transport has chosen seven new factory-bodied DAF LF rigids to form core of pallet operations for 2016. It has also ordered two DAF XF tractors.

RICHARD“Since the sad loss last year of my father, who founded the company back in 1946, we have undergone a period of consolidation and rationalization,” said Richard Read. “This has seen us move into the Pall-Ex pallet network, where we already feel very comfortable, hence the immediate investment in the new DAF rigids.

“We have also been reviewing the make-up of the general haulage fleet to give us a more settled policy, as well as getting everything we run on this side of the business into the main corporate livery.”
