New Vehicle for the Fleet

SFS 12 tonne DAF













Exciting times at Southampton Freight Services!

In October we took delivery of our new 12 tonne tail lift vehicle, with striking graphics and extended dimensions to help accommodate the growing demands of our business. The DAF LF 180 vehicle is environmentally friendly with Euro 6 technology with the lowest emissions and fuel consumption. The new truck doubles our weight capacity for local collections/deliveries, and adds a tail lift to assist when no lifting facilities are available. For our nightly airfreight trunker service to London Heathrow we now have increased capability, and our cruise logistics division now has an additional vehicle to call upon for our busy summer cruise season.

In numbers;

  • 6480 kilos payload
  • 7.22m bed length
  • 2.45m bed width
  • 2.23 m height through the curtain
  • 1000 kilos tail lift

The vehicle is equipped with our specialist TomTom Fleet Management system allowing our operation to send jobs electronically to the integrated satellite navigation system. Our driver can select the job and the navigation system will direct him to the location – with our office tracking the movements providing our clients with real time updates on the ETA of our vehicle.
