New Trucks at Cormar Carpets

To support the growth in the business, once again we have turned to DAF to purchase 10 new trucks. This has enabled us to underpin the network and deliver our peak volumes.

With the opening of the SRDC we will be moving away from the cross-docking of carpets and moving back to the demount box trunking operation. This gives us improved vehicle efficiency and improves quality, as a consequence of less manual handling. However it also means we had to reconfigure the fleet to accommodate this. So earlier this year in March, we ordered 8 new CF75s with specialist drawbar chassis to cover the "trunking" of trailers with loaded boxes. We also ordered 2 LF55s with the ability to run with demountable bodies. As the photos show, the trucks look great and over the busy Autumn they have been put to good use!

Cormar continue to invest in commercial fleet in other ways too, example, by providing our drivers with the latest technology such as lane departure warnings and assisted braking.
