Leyland Trucks has produced its 10,000th ex-factory ‘PACCAR body’ built on a dedicated production line at its UK production plant – a significant milestone for the in-house bodywork program which includes the design, manufacture and installation of premium box, Aerobody and curtainsider bodies.

 

The PACCAR body programme – a unique offering among truck manufacturers – is available on 4x2 rigid chassis across DAF LF and CF model series. Leading customers like Royal Mail have taken advantage of the factory bodywork programme since its introduction in 2007.

The ex-factory programme includes box, Aerobody and curtainsider variants, with a myriad of options for length, height and width, tail-lifts and lighting, and much more, incorporating customer specific requirements that can extend to full vehicle finish including complete vehicle painting and livery application. 

UK-operator Hallam Express in Sheffield is the recipient of the 10,000th vehicle – a 12.0-tonne DAF LF 180 curtain sider. “We were very pleased with the ability to spec and acquire a complete bodied vehicle through our DAF dealer,” said David Simpson, Hallam Express’ Managing Director, “The ex-factory body solution ensures excellent quality and reduces lead-time substantially. It is a genuine one-stop-shop service.”
