Global Delivery Solutions has added two new Volvo FH tractor units to its fleet equipped with I-Save in order to further improve fuel efficiency in the growing fleet.
The general haulage firm, based in Wellingborough, placed the order after trialling a demonstrator fitted with the fuel-saving turbo compound D13TC engine.
Supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre South & East, the two 6x2 Unlimited Edition trucks have metallic ‘ice-white’ paint work with blue decals along with a high-spec Globetrotter XL cab. The trucks also get chrome detailing, Alcoa Dura Bright alloy wheels and Conger Black premium chassis paint and have been specified with black leather upholstery and steering wheel, 7in touchscreen, single bunk living package as well as fridge, microwave and television preparation.
“We’ve been running Volvo trucks ever since we’ve been going and we’ve always been very happy with the product,” says Satpal Bains, co-owner of family-run Global Delivery Solutions.
“The FH with I- Save is talked about as one of the best trucks on the market when it comes to fuel economy, and we were certainly impressed with the results we saw from the demonstrator. The support we get from our local dealer has always been really good so, in the end, it was quite a straightforward decision to go with Volvo for this order.”
For every FH Unlimited Edition vehicle sold in the UK, Volvo Trucks has made a £1,000 donation to “NHS Charities Together” which has so far raised £70,000 to support the collective of NHS charities.
