PARCEL company City Link has this week taken delivery of 56 new tractor units to work at its depots including Rotherham as it gears up for the Christmas rush.
The new vehicles are the first of several measures being undertaken to ensure the firm can cope with the extra demand.
The new Renault 430 Premium 4x2 tractor units have low-emission engines.
Tim Brown, sales and marketing director for City Link, said: “Maintaining our service levels for both our B2B and B2C customers throughout the peak period is at the top of our agenda.
“It is essential that we ensure that we have the right ‘tools for the job’.
“We are making a substantial investment in manpower, vehicles and additional sites to ensure that we are ready.”
