CS2 switches to Thermo King and Marshall

Nottingham, UK: Temperature-controlled warehouse and distribution operator CS2 Transport has upgraded its 60-strong all-refrigerated fleet with four new Daf 26 tonne rigids with G&A multi-temperature bodies.

All the trucks have Thermo King dual temperature fridges supplied and installed by Marshall Fleet Solutions.

The vehicles operate from CS2 Transport’s Chesterfield and Nottingham depots and will cover 150,000km a year a five-year contract hire deal with local Chesterfield Daf dealer A Herring. The deal includes repair and maintenance.

Gary Turney, managing director, CS2 Transport (pictured above left) said, “We have a really strong relationship with A Herring as the Daf chassis is our HGV truck of choice, however for the first time, on their advice, we decided to switch to Thermo King refrigeration systems on our preferred G&A body specification.

“We were impressed by the approach that Marshall Fleet Solutions had to our business, in terms of specifying a multi-temperature system that fully met our requirements, whilst the standard two-year Thermo King warranty was a game changer for us.

“It certainly confirmed to us Thermo King and MFS’s confidence in the reliability and performance of its products.”

The four new Daf CF410 6×2 rigids have dual compartment Gray and Adams bodies and Thermo King T1000R Spectrum fridges. Each vehicle also has a Dhollandia 1500kg retractable tail lift.

“All these new Daf trucks will be operating in and out of London, so they have been specified with the very latest ancillary products, including Direct Vision equipment, satellite tracking and temperature monitoring,” Turney said.
