Dawsongroup puts 18t DAFs into bakery supplier, Walker Humphrey, on Contract Hire DSC_1857

Leeds wholesale bakery supplier Walker Humphrey has turned to Dawsongroup and a contract hire option for its latest fleet enhancements.

The family-run firm has taken on a pair of DAF CF 18 tonners under the finance arrangement and is now looking at replacing all its 16-tonne vehicles through the contract hire and rental business.

Walker Humphrey general manager Simon Rennison said: “We knew our existing 16-tonne vehicles were good for deliveries to smaller customers in towns and villages locally, even farm shops down country lanes, but needed something bigger for bulk orders to larger customers.

“Then, the contract hire option with Dawsongroup offered us the chance to keep capital in the business for other areas of investment.”

The DAFs are fully liveried with the company’s branding and are equipped with Dhollandia 1.5-tonne tail-lifts.
