Hargreaves Services prioritises safety with new Mercedes-Benz Arocs units

Hargreaves Services has put safety first with its recent order of 21 new Mercedes-Benz Arocs tractor units with StreamSpace cabs.

Replacing 21 older Scania vehicles, the new trucks are all fitted with an optional safety pack, including Active Break Assist and Proximity Control Assist systems, as well as a series of cameras and sensors for detecting vulnerable road users.

Paul Boulds, Hargreaves’ workshops and fleet manager, said: “We are always conscious of our duty of care.

“While you cannot put a price on safety, the additional cost of these features was not prohibitive. Hopefully we won’t need them, but it’s nice to know they’re there just in case.”
