Logistics Training School, 2 Start Training has recently purchased a brand new DAF CF tractor unit from Adams Morey in Portsmouth, in Pink!
Over the last three years 2 Start training has gone through a process of upgrading their entire fleet of LGV vehicles to New DAF LF and CF vehicle. Having already renewed the fleet with eight LF rigid vehicles and four CF Tractor units, the surplus work required an additional CF tractor unit to join the fleet, but this time the training company decided to let tier customers choose the colour of the New DAF CF.
So a poll was set up on the 2 Start Facebook and Twitter pages enabling followers to vote for their favourite colour. Championed by Caroline Moon (Finance Director), the pink truck won by a land-slide of over 80 votes more than its nearest rival (red). So the decision was made and the pink truck was ordered.
2 Start decided to use the opportunity to raise awareness of a fantastic charity as well as support a worthwhile cause. With the vehicle being used solely for training, 2 Start made the decision to donate to Cancer Research every time a student passes their test in the pink truck.
“We have a fantastic social media relationship with our clients and as a bit of fun, and a way to say thank you for your business, we decided to put the next colour to the vote." Said Paul Moon Managing, Director of 2 Start Ltd.
He continued "with the addition of being able to raise awareness and money for Cancer Research, it made the acquisition even more special.”
2 Start have set up a fundraising page for the vehicle, so anyone wishing to donate and help raise money to fight the battle with cancer can do so.
