Youngs Transportation and Logistics has added the first two Renault Trucks artics to its fleet of more than 150 vehicles, with vehicle appeal and dealer service cited as key reasons for the deal.
Supplied by Renault Truck Commercials, the 13 litre T520 High 6×2 pushers will operate out of the company’s Head Office in Essex and Southampton on general and container haulage.
They are expected to move anything from games consoles to foodstuffs that have been shipped in from worldwide locations, and then on to destinations across the UK.
The vehicles feature high sleeper cabs and, with the driver out four to five nights a week, they have been specified with on-board comfort including lockers, 40L fridge, microwave, multimedia touchscreen, luxury heated and ventilated driver’s seat, insulated cab curtains and leather steering wheel.
They follow the delivery of a 26 tonne D Range added to the mixed fleet at the end of last year, with another three T480 Highs and two 26 tonne T480 rigids also currently on order.
The new trucks are also the first vehicles showcasing the haulage company’s new branding to reflect its expansion programme that has included the acquisition of new depots in Warrington and Felixstowe.
Andre Jenkins, South East Fleet Manager at Youngs Transportation & Logistics, said: “We’ve added side skirts and stainless-steel wing mirrors to match the alloy wheels which look great against the striking black truck.
“The T Highs look impressive and are the perfect flagship vehicles to showcase in our new branding.”
