Dayla Drinks raises toast to Mercedes Atego trucks

Aylesbury-based wholesaler Dayla Drinks has ordered three new Mercedes-Benz Atego delivery trucks to transport its range of beverages and snacks to hospitality firms around the Home Counties.

The three new curtainsiders, 13.5-tonne Atego 1318s with ClassicSpace S-cabs and 5.1-litre engines, produce 130 kW (177 hp) and drive through six-speed Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated manual transmissions.

Dayla Drinks, which runs 35 vehicles, has operated Mercedes-Benz trucks for more than 10 years, with the current line-up including Sprinter van chassis cabs at 3.5 and 5.0 tonnes GVW, and 7.5-tonne Fuso Canters.

Its largest-ever vehicle, a Mercedes-Benz Actros 18-tonner, is scheduled for delivery next spring.
