Scottish haulage and courier firm, Woody’s Express Parcels, has hailed Asset Alliance Group’s impressive service after taking delivery of eight new tractor units, rigid trucks and trailers that will help the business manage new contracts.

Building on several orders with Asset Alliance Group over the past year, the latest three-year contract hire deal includes three new DAF XG 530 trucks, one 26-tonne MAN curtainsider, an 18-tonne DAF curtainsider and three double-deck trailers.

Woody’s Express Parcels Owner, David Wood, says the commercial vehicle specialist continues to deliver on its promises by supplying trucks and trailers to meet the precise requirements of his expanding company.

Repeat Business

“They have been brilliant for our business over the years – and I’m very happy with this latest deal. I have an excellent relationship with their Business Development Manager, Dougie Bennett. It’s a people business and he’s always been very reliable, loyal and kind to us. That’s why I keep returning to Asset Alliance Group,” he says.

Following its acquisition of another transport firm 18 months ago, the haulier will put the new arrivals into service on a series of different contracts, operating on the firm’s trunking routes between its depots in Glasgow, Inverness, Stornoway and Wick.

Featuring Woody’s Express Parcels new-look livery, they join a 140-strong mixed commercial vehicle fleet that provides parcel and palletised deliveries across the Highlands, and Islands, as well as nationally and internationally through a network of subcontractors.

DAF XG Impressive

Wood says the new generation DAF XG trucks, complete with spacious cabs and automatic temperature control systems, will not only enhance his company’s image on the roads, but also benefit its drivers. “Driver comfort is hugely important. These DAFs have lots of interior space and provide some fantastic cab features. If you want good drivers, you need quality vehicles,” he adds.

Bennett of Asset Alliance Group says: “Woody’s Express Parcels plays a vital role in haulage and delivery services between the islands and the north and central Scotland. We value their business and are delighted to be supporting the firm’s continued growth.”

Founded in 1986, Woody’s Express Parcels operates its growing fleet from the firm’s head office at the Stornoway depot, which serves as its main delivery hub.
