DSV has taken delivery of its 1,000th MAN truck in the UK.

Its latest addition, a TGX 26.500 with an XXL cab, will operate from the haulier’s Immingham depot.

The truck is painted in commemorative silver with the DSV logo in black, a change from its traditional deep blue livery with white lettering.

Keith Northen, manager fleet at Immingham DSV Road division, UK, said: “This vehicle marks not one, but two milestones for DSV here in the UK. Firstly, it is the 1000th MAN truck that we have operated within our UK fleet over the past 20 years, and secondly all 1000 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,” Mr Northen expanded. “With over 20 years of experience in     specifying and supplying our vehicles, Mark knows exactly what we need and delivers on time, every time.

The new TGX joins an existing fleet of 172 DSV vehicles, 142 of which are MAN.

DSV Commercials  located in Immingham, a MAN Truck & Bus franchised service provider, prepare all new DSV vehicles and maintain their own fleet locally, a service that they have provided since 1988
