Davanti commissions new fleet to support UK distribution network
Davanti has bolstered its UK logistics infrastructure to support the rapidly growing network of Davanti Distributors. The brand has commissioned a fleet of new vehicles, featuring two 40ft artic trucks and two 7.5t trucks. The fleet will provide a nationwide support stock service to Davanti regional distributors, backing up supply direct from the factory.
“It’s imperative that Davanti Performance Centres experience exceptional fill-rates from regional distributors. This level of service and support is central to the Davanti brand offer. We want our customers to be able to access the full Davanti size range on a same-day basis – offering this level of service UK-wide is the rationale behind our latest investment in the new fleet,” commented Davanti vice general manager, Wilson Zhang.
The investment in the fleet comes as the company announces the launch of the brand’s second generation of tyres: the DX440 and the DX420. Davanti is preparing to launch these two new patterns this September at the China International Tire Expo 2015 in Shanghai.
Developed specifically for the British hackney carriage, the DX420 is a heavy-duty commercial taxi tyre. The DX420 boasts good grip and performance characteristics, as well as being the quietest tyres for this application in the marketplace, Davanti claims. The tyre is built to be tough and long lasting while delivering all-weather grip and a comfortable drive.
The DX440 is a commercial van tyre with the strength and durability to endure heavy loads in all conditions, designed to perform on both normal road terrains and in demanding site conditions.
