Asset Alliance funds JHP Transport fleet upgrade

Sandilands, Lanarkshire, Scotland: Asset Alliance Group has supplied JHP Transport with ten new Daf XF 530 tractors.

Five of the trucks are replacements for older models previously provided by Asset Alliance, and five are new additions to the fleet.

All ten will be in operation seven days a week, handling scheduled, long-distance refrigerated haulage work in the UK and have all been finished in the company’s distinctive livery, featuring the Union and Saltire flags.

Jim Prentice, managing director, JHP Transport, says: “We have a strong relationship with Asset Alliance Group, so we knew we could rely on them as we extend and upgrade our fleet.

“Throughout the seven years we’ve worked together they are always on hand to provide the support and guidance we need. We really appreciate the personal and open relationship we have.” 

“We knew the vehicles and spec we wanted, and Asset Alliance Group were able to offer exactly what we wanted at a competitive price. The new Dafs have impressive fuel-saving potential, and we will be monitoring the results closely to see the impact they have.”

The new additions join a mixed fleet of 37 Daf, Scania, and Renault trucks.

Willie Paterson, chief executive, Asset Alliance said: “We are proud of the trust we have built with JHP Transport over the years and this latest deal reinforces our strong working partnership.”
