All of the trucks feature full NAPA branding.

AAG Director of Logistics, Neil Warren in front of the new fleet

Director of Logistics at Alliance Automotive, Neil Warren commented, “As demand for NAPA grows month on month, these trucks will not just form the backbone of one of the newest and most efficient logistic infrastructures in the UK’s automotive aftermarket, they will also make a significant contribution to NAPA brand presence in the regions we’re serving. Better still, that recognition will only increase as, whilst right now, these vehicles make up a quarter of our total fleet.  There is another on its way already and by the end of 2021 the AAG artic fleet will be 50% NAPA branded.  That’s a mark of the support AAG are putting behind driving the brand in the UK.”

  1. You have to shift a lot of cheap Chinese parts to cover that cost. I thought that leasing was the smart way to go?
