Cumbria Logistics has added a pair of Renault D280 4x2 rigids to its 40-strong mixed fleet.

The 18-tonners, which were supplied by Border Trucks, will be joined by a third example later this year.

The trucks have been specified with day cabs and feature curtain-sided bodies by Fosters Commercials. Optional extras include adjustable roof deflectors, side deflectors, air-suspended heated Comfort driver's seats with lumbar support, leather steering wheels, steel bumpers and fuel tanks and rear air suspension.

Cumbria Logistics specialises in the movement of palletised freight and packaged hazardous goods, and is a member of Hazchem, The Pallet Network and Pall-Ex. It also works for independent networks Clarkes, Freightroute and XPO, and the new trucks will be double-shifted, trunking at night and working in the local area by day.

“We are extremely proud of our customer base of over 100 local companies, which we deliver for or through our various network partners,” said James Charnley, MD at Cumbria Logistics. “We are extremely proud of our customer base of over 100 local companies, which we deliver for or through our various network partners. Having reliable trucks and back-up service is key to keeping our customers happy and we have been delighted by Border Trucks’ excellent service over the last year, their flexible arrangements and the availability of the vehicles that were needed promptly for the business which has been growing steadily since the pandemic.

“Nothing is too much trouble for Mike Carr and the team at Border Trucks, they are efficient, knowledgeable, reliable and friendly. They took the time to look after us, understand our business and then deliver what they promise; I really can’t fault them.”

The Longtown-based haulier also runs five Renault T tractors, consisting on two T520 Highs, two T480s and a T520.

  • Renault Trucks will be exhibiting at this year’s Road Transport Expo, which takes place at Stoneleigh NAEC on June 28-30. It’s FREE to attend, and registrations are now open.
