Global transport and logistics provider DSV has just taken delivery of its 1,000th UK MAN truck.
MAN TGX 26.500 6×2
DSV’s latest addition to the fleet is a new MAN TGX 26.500 6×2 tractor featuring an XXL cab. Based out of DSV’s Immingham depot it will travel throughout the UK delivering unitised loads. In marking the significance of the 1,000th MAN truck to enter service for DSV in the UK, unlike the traditional DSV deep blue livery with white lettering, the new vehicle is painted in a commemorative silver with the DSV logo in black. The new vehicle joins 172 DSV vehicles on the UK fleet, 142 of which are MAN. As the flagship of the DSV fleet the TGX has been specified with MAN’s Style Package, leather seats and cab trim, satnav with 7in colour screen and air-conditioning.
Safety, a key area for DSV, has been enhanced with the fitment of MAN EBA braking, lane guard and cornering lights. Keith Northen, manager, fleet, Immingham DSV Road division, UK, said: “This vehicle marks not one, but two milestones for DSV here in the UK. Firstly, it is the 1,000th MAN truck that we have operated within our UK fleet over the past 20 years and secondly all 1,000 vehicles have been sold to us by the same contact from MAN, Mark Price. “We have a long-term, firmly established and trusted relationship with both Mark and MAN,” added Northen. “With over 20 years of experience in specifying and supplying our vehicles, Mark knows exactly what we need and delivers on time, every time.
