Grangemouth’s XS Transport has named one of its new generation DAF XG 530 tractor units after Asset Alliance Group’s Kerry Anne Grogan as a mark of gratitude for her customer service.

It is one of five new DAFs the Stirlingshire haulier has taken delivery of as part of a fleet renewal programme and it will also be adding a DAF CF 340 FAR 26-tonne curtainsider tail-lift to the fleet later this month.

XS boss Alan Taylor said: “Our truck called Kerry Anne was the first one of the five DAFs on the road.

“It looks superb with the black and pink ‘fire’ livery and suits her personality down to a tee. The other trucks are named after some of our other drivers’ family members.

“It started off as a joke when Kerry Anne said she’d like to get her name on a truck. We surprised her by doing just that. We want to acknowledge her dedication to helping our ongoing success over a number of years.”

He added: “What we love about Kerry Anne is that she is regularly in contact with us and goes the extra mile to make sure we have everything we need. She epitomises great customer service.”

Grogan said: “What began as a bit of banter between myself and Alan has ended with XS Transport labelling a truck in my name. I’m thrilled and honoured. It was great to sit in the cab with my name on the front of it, and I can’t wait to see it out on the road.”
