ASCO adds Range Ts to Renault dominated fleet

07 August 2019

Leading logistics and materials management provider, ASCO Group, has added 15 new Renault Trucks to its 60-strong fleet.

The Range T 460 6×2 models will be used to provide waste, fuels and cargo transportation for the gas and oil industry.

Supplied by Renault Trucks Scotland on a five-year operating lease deal, the new Range Ts are fitted with many features to enhance the driver experience including ultimate leather steering wheel with cruise and telephone control, air-suspended driver’s heated seat with adjustable lumbar support, one-touch electric windows, comfort air conditioning, remote control for all comfort functions in the bunk area and two loudspeakers and two tweeters.

Working out of ASCO’s Peterhead bases, the new Range Ts will be travelling as far as Montrose and Edzell to the south, and Peterhead to the north, as well as reaching Scrabster and Invergordon during periods of bad weather offshore. The waste vehicles in the north run as far as the North West of England and the Range T stationed in Great Yarmouth covers the South of England.

Paul Davidson, ​Transport Operations Manager, ASCO UK said, “The trucks look very professional on the road, enhancing the drivers’ satisfaction in the job they do. Their feedback has been very positive with style, comfort, and a smooth driving experience mentioned regularly. They hold the road well and our drivers are proud to drive them.”

As well as looking good on the outside, the Range Ts are fitted with some of the latest technology including sensored braking, lane departure warning system, adaptive cruise control as well as Renault Trucks’ acclaimed Optidriver gearbox with automated clutch and steering wheel mounted gear selector.
