Scotland’s Woody’s Express Parcels has taken delivery of eight new DAFs and MANs from Asset Alliance Group in order to help it manage new contracts.

The three-year contract hire deal included three DAF XG 530 trucks, one 26-tonne MAN curtainsider, an 18-tonne DAF curtainsider and three double-deck trailers.

David Wood, Woody’s Express Parcels owner, said Asset Alliance had continued to deliver on its promise to supply vehicles that met the precise requirements of the growing company:

“They have been brilliant for our business over the years – and I’m very happy with this latest deal,” he said.

“I have an excellent relationship with their business development manager, Dougie Bennett.

“It’s a people business and he’s always been very reliable, loyal and kind to us. That’s why I keep returning to Asset Alliance Group.”

Following its acquisition of another transport firm 18 months ago, the haulier will put the new vehicles into service on a series of different contracts, operating on the firm’s trunking routes between its depots in Glasgow, Inverness, Stornoway and Wick.

They join a 140-strong mixed commercial vehicle fleet that provides parcel and palletised deliveries across the Highlands, and Islands, as well as nationally and internationally through a network of subcontractors.
