New HGV to train drivers and supply towns
HMT Group in UK is the latest company to introduce the Isuzu Grafter 3.5 t truck as a driver training vehicle to encourage non-HGV drivers to make the step up to Class I and 2 driving levels. The truck is also being used within the company’s Palletline pallet network business to work on local urban delivery schedules.
The Isuzu Grafter N35.125 will operate from the company’s Preston head office for a minimum of a three-to-four-year period after which it will then move to one of the company’s other depots.
As part of HMT’s pallet network distribution, the vehicle is currently making between three and four delivery journeys per day within the company’s allotted postcodes in West Lancashire. (ben)
