Volvo’s warm reception at Cold Logistics
NewCold Advanced Cold Logistics is renewing its fleet of 36 tractors with Volvo FH 6x2s.
The vehicles are being supplied on a full three-year contract hire package.
The 500hp Euro 6 vehicles, supplied by dealer Crossroads Truck & Bus in Birstall, are equipped with Volvo’s I-Shift transmission. They all have Globetrotter cabs and a 4.1m wheelbase to maximise fuel capacity.
Wakefield-based NewCold is also taking delivery of a further six new Gray & Adams 44-pallet floating deck trailers in January, which will bring the double-deck fleet to 12. This fleet will continue to expand in 2017 to fulfil NewCold’s ambitious environmental goals to minimise food miles and harmful emissions – the company expects to take delivery of around 30 more double-deck trailers by the end of the year.
NewCold’s country director, Jon Miles said, ‘The FH4 500 is loved by our drivers and the truck also gives good journey times while giving great returns on fuel. With Crossroads Truck & Bus close to our operating centre we get world-class service to maximise up-time.’
