Oakwood Fuels has ordered two new Daf CF trucks from Ryder, featuring a revised livery to celebrate the operator’s 20th anniversary.

The pair of Daf CF460 6x2 44-tonne trucks, supplied on a five-year contract hire deal, are equipped with Space Cabs and AS-Tronic gearboxes, and are the first trucks on Oakwood’s 50-strong fleet to feature the special livery.

Oakwood’s fleet collects and transports a variety of hazardous waste, including oils, to a facility in Nottinghamshire, where the waste oils are either converted into a fuel that can be used as a substitute for heavy fuel oil or exported to refineries in continental Europe to be processed into base oil that can be used to produce lubricating oil.

Ryder’s vehicles will be used to deliver processed fuel oil throughout the UK.

Oakwood’s general manager Michael Sneath said: “We’re celebrating this important milestone for Oakwood throughout the year. All vehicles entering our fleet will carry the special 20-years laurel and we’re excited to see the first of these hit the road.

"We’re a national operator and therefore Ryder’s national coverage and excellent back-up were reasons for selecting them, giving us peace of mind in the unlikely case of something going wrong.”
