Birmingham-based TPN member LTS Distribution has taken delivery of two new generation Daf XF 530 trucks, expanding its 50-strong fleet.

The units are set to be joined by three 7.5-tonne LFs and an 18-tonne CF rigid.

MD Dave Hands said the business had been expanding steadily with the addition on an international service - through which it offers worldwide shipping imports, exports and cross-trade movements and air imports and exports - while its pallet services through TPN had shown significant growth. 

"As a result, we need to be expanding the fleet and keep it as modern as we can to keep ahead of demand. The new Dafs add to our overall fleet numbers but also replace a couple of older trucks. 

"We have some earlier XF 510 models on the road and are looking to monitor those against the new XFs, with their 530hp engines, and are keen to see the predicted fuel economy improvement of these latest models,” Hands added.

The new generation Daf XF 530 was launched at this year's CV Show.
