Advanced Engineering Techniques proudly received the latest addition to their growing logistic fleet – an 18 tonne rigid curtainsider. The DAF CF 260 FA was provided by Evans Halshaw who employed a leading commercial vehicle body fitter, with the driveline compliant with the stringent Euro 6 emissions and efficiency legislation.
With a payload of around 10 tonnes, the truck marks a significant increase in carrying capacity for AET and is in line with the company’s growth of recent years. The bed has been fitted out to allow a second deck to be added to suit individual loads, and a sleeper cab gives the option of longer delivery ranges.
AET’s Logistics Team Leader Lee Colton commented – ‘This truck is a huge step forward for us at AET and shows both the direction we’re travelling in, and the willingness to continue to invest and push the boundaries. Getting the product to the customer on time, every time, is central to our success and the addition of this vehicle shows that we are well placed to meet the continual challenges of our customer base.’
