DHL makes major fleet investment

DHL Supply Chain is to invest a massive £90 million adding more than 1,000 new vehicles to its UK fleet in 2019.

The spending will see the contract logistics specialist add everything from tractor units to specialised rigids and multi temperature-controlled vehicles.

All will be equipped with the advanced safety features, including cameras, Microlise telematics and the latest engine technology.

Ian Clough, Managing Director, Network Logistics and Transport, UK & Ireland, DHL Supply Chain said, “Not only are we investing in our infrastructure to support our growth, but to signal our confidence in the contract logistics market in the UK.”

As part of DHL’s ongoing efforts to improve its sustainability and reduce the environmental impact of its operations, a number of the vehicles will run on liquefied natural gas.
