New trucks bring significant fuel savings
UK haulier Premier Logistics has added the two Volvo trucks 460hp FHs with I-Save, alongside one new 500hp FH, to its 50-strong mixed fleet. The new vehicles bring significant fuel savings. They use 25.6 l/100 km versus 29.7 l/100 km that trucks are traditionally expected to achieve on the same routes.
Premier Logistics has one of the FHs with I-Save working on a contract moving aluminium extrusions all around the UK. The other is working in the firm’s general distribution fleet transporting food and confectionary.
Both are averaging roughly 450 km per day. Working six days a week, the trucks will be in service for five years and are expected to do roughly 140,000 km per year. (ben)
