The operation pulls together five of the best-known family-owned names in UK haulage. Specifically designed around these large independent operators, Harlequin Logistics is notable for the fact that all members are shareholders, a factor expected to give it a crucial edge over the competition in terms of accountability and performance.

Anthony Richards sits on the Harlequin Logistics board as the Jack Richards & Son representative.

DAF Trucks

DAF Trucks’ core activities are focused on the development, production, marketing and sale of medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles.

Another core activity focuses on the marketing and sales of light trucks in the UK. All DAF products are backed up by a full range of services.

DAF works according to the ‘Build to Order’ principle. This means that all vehicles are built to satisfy each customer’s individual wishes, but production only starts after the order is received from the customer. This is very important, because DAF builds tens of thousands of different vehicle versions which are all built to meet each customer’s individual specifications and transport requirements.
