Ryder Supplies 162 New DAF Euro-6 Vehicles To Elis

Ryder is supplying 162 new DAF vehicles to international textile, hygiene and facilities services specialist Elis.

It is the first HGV order by Elis since it acquired Berendsen, and the new vehicles are being supplied in new ‘Elis’ livery designed specifically for the UK market.

The trucks, which will replace outgoing models, will carry out a range of, mostly, laundry delivery collections operating across 38 Elis sites.

The new batch of rigid trucks includes latest specification Euro-6 18t CF230s, 15t LF230s, 12t LF180s and 7.5t LF150s.

Ryder was selected for the new contract following a detailed benchmarking exercise and consultation on Elis’ projected fleet and commercial requirements.

The vehicles are being supplied on a full contract hire basis with full maintenance, including tail-lift.

The CF and LF vehicles are specified with Bevan bodies with uprated tail-lifts and improved tail-lift controls, recognising the heavy usage requirements of Elis’ operations, which can involve up to 35 drops per day for an individual vehicle.

In addition, based on operational feedback to reduce damage and improve safety, Ryder worked with Elis and the bodybuilder to design improved internal restraining straps and mountings for securing the cages within the vehicle during transportation.

All of the new vehicles are being installed with a comprehensive TomTom telematics suite, and 360 degree, four camera system that produces live images and is Direct Vision Standard compliant.
