A Sheffield-headquartered logistics firm has invested £500,000 into the expansion of its fleet.
DBL Logistics, which is based on Tinsley Park Road in Sheffield, has invested in six new Scania HGVs, taking the number of vehicles at the business from 17 to 23.
Operations, transport and health and safety manager Adam Boyd, recently certified as an Associate Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health, spearheaded the project and investment.
David Clarkson, managing director of DBL Logistics, said:
"This investment is an exciting step forward for DBL Logistics, in more ways than one.
"Not only is the Scania investment a huge development for DBL, but Adam’s recent step up in his accreditation with the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health has seen his role develop further, something which will also take our business forward.
"Investing in our fleet is crucial to the development of the business, as is our recent staff restructuring, which includes Adam’s new role.
"The new vehicles will help us considerably improve our fuel efficiency, reduce our service costs and offer our customers even better value for money."
John Crossland, Scania’s area sales manager for the east region, added:
"It’s been great working with DBL Logistics to update their existing fleet of vehicles.
"This latest deal has been in the making for the past few months, and with DBL Logistics an industry leader in Yorkshire, it’s been fantastic working with such a forward-thinking, extremely well-run family firm."
