Last week Team ATL; Jon Ward (Managing Director), Andy Partington (Head of HR) and Stephan Moss (Group Transport Manager) completed their challenge, and spent 4 days cycling from London to Paris (308 miles) all to raise money for Rainbows Hospice; the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people suffering from life-shortening conditions. So far successfully raising £1,508.
With overnight stops including Calais, Arras and Compiegne before finishing the 28 hour run to make it successfully to Paris on the fourth day.
Upon completing the challenge Stephan Moss, Group Transport Manager said
“This has been one of the best experiences yet for me, and I can’t thank Jon and Andy enough for this amazing journey. ATL made this happen, I was just here at the right time”
We are extremely proud of Team ATL and what they have achieved with this challenge so a massive congratulations to the trio.
Roll on the next challenge.
To mark 60 years in business, ATL has added four brand new DAF XF trucks to our ever-growing fleet.
As we already run a large number of DAF units from Imperial Commercials, we acted quickly upon hearing the news that these trucks had become available.
To showcase our 60th Anniversary, we have opted for two unique liveries. The first, to pay tribute to where it all started on the 24th of July 1959. A Brown and Cream, vintage colour scheme.
Adorned with diamond graphics and named after our founders Dennis and Norma. These two stand out amongst the currently uniformed fleet.
The remaining two are in a striking modern blue and silver design, maintaining the diamond details.
Procurement Officer, Laura MacDonald stated, “We have a very long-standing relationship with Imperial commercials and they are aware of all our requirements and expectations so we acted quickly when we learned the vehicles were available.”

ATL helped life-limited children and their families celebrate Christmas early when it visited Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People in Loughborough with a festive donation.
