DBC opts for DAFs with quiet fridges

DBC Foodservice has taken delivery of 35 dual-compartment 12- and 18-tonne DAF LF55 220’s from Ryder to deliver frozen food to high street restaurants and cafés.

DBC has taken the vehicles on a contract-hire basis because they run a Frigoblock refrigeration system. This is powered by the truck’s engine, reducing the noise associated with self-powered refrigeration units and enabling early or late deliveries in residential areas.

The firm operates from 14 sites throughout the UK. Customers include Caffè Nero, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Loch Fyne and Little Chef.
