Leading two-man delivery specialists Panther Logistics has placed an order for 22 new TGL MAN 7.5 tonne to cater to the increased demand driven by the growth in online shopping, while 35 new TGX MAN tractor units are also set to arrive later this year as part of Panther’s ongoing investment to support growth.
Panther, which was recently acquired by AIT Worldwide Logistics, has invested £1.1m into the new vehicles in response to the increased growth and as part of a fleet replacement programme.
The substantial investment has been made to support Panther’s expansion after the requirement for their services rose exponentially due to the rise in demand for non-essential items during the pandemic – a trend which is showing no signs of slowing down.
All vehicles, which will bear Panther’s new livery, will split across five main sites: Northampton, Gateshead, Preston, Warrington, and Castleford.
The new 7.5 tonne TGL vehicles, which have been provided by MAN – a relationship which has spanned over five years – are fitted with forward, rear and side facing live cameras, and also come with playback in order to improve accident management and ensure optimal safety.
Panther’s investment in its new vehicles will also support its ongoing commitment to improving its environmental impact.
