Chepstow-based Bull Transport has ordered six new Volvo FH tractor units, including a fleet flagship FH16-750.

The trucks, supplied by Truck and Bus Wales and West, will be used for general haulage and on Bull’s Tesco contract covering the West Country and South West Wales.

Bull operates 37 trucks, including 32 Volvos, 16 of which are the latest series FH tractor units. Engine power outputs range from 460hp to 750hp, and all transmissions are I-Shift.

Director Jonathan Bull said: “Our drivers like the Volvos. Most of them prefer them to the other makes in the fleet and will ask if they can take an FH for their shift.” 

The Bull Transport trailer fleet includes a number of 4.65m high capacity curtain siders, as well as pulling 4.2m to 4.8m fridges ranging from 8 to 13.6 metres in length for supermarket deliveries. 

Director Richard Bull added that the reliability of Volvo trucks and dealer support “means we can achieve optimum vehicle availability on a daily basis.”
