LONDON, Jul 21 (FAM) – DSV UK has invested in 50 new rigid 7.5-tonne and 18-tonne Volvo trucks to add to its UK fleet, in conjunction with its UK domestic road freight partner General Express Services.

The new vehicles, which will be based east of London in Purfleet, Essex, will primarily service customers in London and the South East. While the majority of these vehicles will replace older vehicles in the existing fleet, overall the total number of vehicles based in Purfleet will increase by six “as a result of the growing volume of business in the domestic market”, DSV said.
