First Volvo New Generation FH Vehicles Arrive

Posted on 26th April, 2021 First Volvo New Generation FH Vehicles Arrive

The company has taken delivery of the first Volvo new generation FH vehicles which heralds the start of the roll-out of the renewal of our 127-strong fleet.

The new FH 13-litre 460bhp Euro 6 model went into production this month and we will be one of the first companies in the country to get the vehicles out on-the-road. The fleet renewal programme will take two years to complete with the first 25 vehicles being delivered to us by the end of May.  A further 48 vehicles will be supplied by the end of this year.

The company completed an £11 million, five-year deal with Thomas Hardie Commercials Ltd of Middlewich for the supply of the new fleet.

Speaking about the delivery of the first vehicles, Transport Operations Director, Neil Trotter said:

“The specification and the performance of the new trucks is very impressive and there is much anticipation about getting the new vehicles operational.

“We are very fortunate to be in a position to be able to renew our fleet every five years and we have the in-house expertise to co-ordinate a detailed appraisal of the best vehicles on the market in terms of driver safety and comfort, on-the-road performance and maintenance support over the period of the contract.

“Following meticulous scrutiny of the latest vehicles, the new Volvo model ticked all the boxes for us.”

As part of the renewal, we are increasing our fleet size by a further ten vehicles and the company is currently co-ordinating a recruitment campaign to attract new drivers.

Features of the Volvo vehicle include a 33-litre under-bunk fridge, a microwave fitted in overhead locker and a flat-screen TV, located above the driver door which can be viewed from a swivel passenger seat.
