Asset Alliance Group supplied the family-run company Law Distribution with a 19-tonne DAF LF Electric for a two week trial period. The truck was put to work on jobs in and around Liverpool and charged overnight using a three-phase power circuit at the depot which is also used to charge electric forklifts. The LF Electric was supplied by Richard Worthington, business development manager for Northern Region at Asset Alliance Group. 


John Law, managing director at Law Distribution, said: “We have held off a little when it comes to electric as, like many operators, we were uncertain about how best to integrate the technology into our operations. However, when Asset Alliance Group offered the DAF LF Electric, a model that we are familiar with, we jumped at the chance.


“My drivers loved it as it’s very smooth to drive, there’s minimal vibration and it’s quiet, which is ideal for urban work in city centres. Decarbonising our fleet is a hugely important aim, and while we’re at the beginning of that journey, the electric DAF exceeded our expectations as a work tool.”


Rob Gwynn, strategic development manager at Asset Alliance Group said: “We were really pleased to offer Law Distribution a trial of the DAF LF Electric truck. The feedback has been encouraging and the ease at which the vehicle fitted into their operation demonstrates that in the right application, electric works and works very well.


“We look forward to supporting Law Distribution on their decarbonisation journey, as part of our emerging strategy to work with all our customers, advising on the right alternative fuel and associated infrastructure for their specific needs.”


Five Mercedes-Benz Actros 2548 BigSpace tractor units have also recently been added to Law Distribution’s fleet on contract hire from Asset Alliance Group. This brings the fleet total up to nearly 50 vehicles, around three quarters of which have been supplied by Asset Alliance.
