Brian Easey Transport has purchased a Volvo FH Lite with I-Save, after positive results from a pair of demonstrators.

The Globetrotter-cabbed 6x2 tractor, the fourth Volvo on the Cambridgeshire-based hauliers’ 23-strong fleet, combines the D13TC Euro-6 (D) engine with turbo-compounding and updated fuel-efficiency features.

“People usually get these turbo compound Volvos with a 460hp engine, but I like high-powered trucks, and insisted on 500hp,” said owner Brian Easey. “The fuel figures this new Volvo can potentially give us are exciting. Our drivers can be away for up to two weeks on long European journeys, so keeping the fuel costs down as much as possible is very important to us. We like to use top quality trucks and this one certainly looks like it will be a great addition to the fleet.”

The truck, which is expected to cover 130,000km per annum, was supplied by Alan Didwell, transport solutions executive at Volvo Truck and Bus Centre East Anglia.
