The order is dominated by 770 35S11 3.5-tonners equipped with AGile semi-automatic six-speed gearboxes. However, the deal also includes 25 EcoDaily models that can run on compressed biomethane fom Gasrec; environmentally-friendly landfill gas, in other words.

All the newcomers are fitted with Solomon triple-compartment bodies that can carry ambient, chilled and frozen food and fridge units sourced from either GAH or Hubbard. They’re monitored by a Microlise telematics system.

Each Daily will remain in service for five years and will clock up an average 25,000 miles annually apiece.
