Recent News

New Downton Trucks Hit The Road In £5 Million Fleet Investment

A raft of new 19-plate trucks are set to hit the road today as the first phase of a £5 million investment in the CM Downton fleet gets underway.
Sixty new DAF XF 480 FTG 6×2 tractor units supplied by Imperial Commercials in Gloucester will come online as the company, part of UK logistics giant EV Cargo, expands its fleet to cope with growing volumes and new business wins. Twenty units will hit the road today with an additional 40 units planned during March and April.
All meet the latest Euro 6 regulations around emissions and will ensure that 93 per cent of the Downton fleet is compliant with upcoming stringent rules around low emission zones, reducing the company’s impact on the environment and helping customers meet their sustainability targets.
The tractors are loaded with state-of-the-art safety technology such as lane assist and driver aids to help monitor and reduce fuel consumption – and will be used across the firm’s national operations network.
Downton is also refreshing its trailer fleet by adding 100 new curtain-side Tiger Trailers emblazoned with the firm’s traditional colours and subtle new EV Cargo dual-branding.
Zac Brown, CM Downton operations director, said: “As part of the EV Cargo group, we have the resource to invest across all areas of the business and the new trucks and trailers will ensure we have the latest technology to deliver sector-leading logistics in the most sustainable way possible. Responding to recent contract wins and a flourishing business portfolio, this fleet expansion will ensure the high quality of service the Downton name is renowned for.”

Downton Signs Up £30 Million Of Contract Business

Award-winning haulier CM Downton, part of UK logistics giant EV Cargo, has completed the signing of business contracts worth £30 million annually after securing a number of contract extensions and new business wins.
The Gloucestershire-based firm, which recently announced a £5 million fleet investment, has won new business from Highland Spring, a leading spring water producer, and Mirius, a provider of global hygiene solutions.
Both companies have manufacturing or warehousing facilities based in the Midlands and required a national distribution solution at short notice, which Downton was able to quickly and efficiency supply through its national network.
Downton also secured a number of contract extensions and renewals with long-standing clients including UPM, ROCKWOOL and Hydro.
It currently provides on-site logistics services for UPM, including material handling equipment, at the Shotton paper mill in North Wales. Recovered paper is delivered inbound with finished paper reels distributed to a number of locations. Downton also manages UPM’s distribution of paper and timber products from the Port of Tilbury.
Downton provides transport and warehousing for insulation manufacturer ROCKWOOL, distributing full truck-load and groupage orders to the building trade sector and using sister EV Cargo company Palletforce to sustainably deliver smaller consignments.
The Hydro contract sees Downton operate a national distribution service and manage all transport activities from three key aluminium extrusion sites.
Duncan Eyre, CM Downton managing director, said: “Downton has a strong reputation in the industry for delivering the goods in a straightforward, no-fuss manner. These contract extensions demonstrate our ability to consistently build long-term relationships by providing services of the highest quality, and our focus on continual improvement to offer the latest innovative solutions through EV Cargo. The new business wins are proof of our agility to quickly respond to commercial opportunities.”
Chris McGirr, Highland Spring Group logistics manager, said: “Highland Spring recently reviewed its transport operations in the Midlands and selected Downton as the preferred partner due to the swift, detailed responses and flexibility their operation can provide for a fast moving and relatively volatile demand-driven product like water. Progress to date for the transition has been excellent and we look forward to growing the operation with Downton in the coming months.”
Fiona Houston, ROCKWOOL supply chain manager, said: “ROCKWOOL has been working closely with Downton for a number of years because they provide an excellent service. We have worked collaboratively to continuously improve our logistics offering, particularly to smaller sites, and add-on solutions via integrated systems.”
