IFL invests £165,000 in further transport upgrades

New DAF trucks for IFL

International Forwarding (IFL) has added two further upgrades to its cargo fleet to help reduce carbon emissions.

In May we invested £165,000 in two brand new DAF CF 260 trucks to help reduce our carbon footprint. This follows a £200,000 investment made in Euro 6 standard trucks and new equipment last year.

We are committed to upgrading our vehicles to comply with new emissions standards, the Birmingham Clean Air Zone (CAZ) and other CAZ areas around the UK. The new acquisitions come with the latest features in safety, security and efficiency, including the highest Euro 6 European emission standards, which complements our ongoing drive towards greener transport and logistics.

You can see our latest DAF tractor units up close at Truckfest West Midlands on Saturday 2 July at the Three Counties Showground Malvern.

Big challenges ahead for UK freight and logistics

Rob Pike, Managing Director, International Forwarding, said: “Reducing air pollution is a significant challenge facing everyone who works in the UK freight and transport sector. We all have a key role to play.

“Our latest investment forms part of an ongoing programme to reduce our environmental impact. As an established Birmingham freight forwarder, we are CAZ-compliant and able to offer a freight forwarding services to our customers across the city of Birmingham, the Midlands and beyond.”

The two new 18-tonne rigids (pictured) bring the number of trucks in the company’s cargo fleet to 20 and are being used on distance work, carrying UK pallets and international freight. They replace two older trucks, which will now be recycled.

Addressing air pollution issues is not just about greener vehicles, however. IFL is part of the Palletways pallet network and we use a range of strategies to make freight forwarding a more efficient means of transport.
