Spalding based Chilled & Frozen haulier Fresh Linc Distribution have been taking on a batch of 20 brand new DAF XF105 Tractor Units, booted up with 460 horses.
These vehicles make the hauliers first new deliveries in a year, and are operating out of Spalding Depot, replacing 4/5 Year old Scania R440 Tractor units, which have been returned to the dealer for sale on the second hand market.
08- Registered MAN TG-Xs formerly operated by the haulier have already left, with the majority of them being snapped up by March based QV Foods (Formerly MBM Produce).
More DAF XFs are expected to arrive soon, but it remains to be seen if these will be 61 registered or held back until the 12 series comes out in March.
