Knowles Transport has added its first Renaults on to its 120-strong fleet.

Supplied by Renault Truck Commercials, two T440 6x2s have been added to the company’s line-up moving food, drink and ambient to retailers across the UK and Ireland.

Their fuel performance as well as Knowles’ relationship with the Renault Trucks salesman was said to be the catalyst for the T440s joining the fleet.

Alex Knowles, MD, said: “I’ve worked with Dean Hall before and he clearly understands our business and its requirements. So, when Dean came to me and explained how the Renault Trucks T will work well in our operation, including fuel performance which is the sweet spot for our fleet, I trusted his judgement and was convinced to give them a trial.”

The T440s have been specified with driver comfort and acceptance in mind with extras that include a luxury driver’s seat, leather steering wheel, convertible upper bunk, additional storage compartments cab air-suspension, ROADPAD + and Eco drive control with Optiroll.

“Our driver liked the demo and we’ve spec’d the trucks out nicely. Overall, the vehicles look impressive in the livery and, although it’s still early days, the performance is in line with where we need it,” added Knowles.

Renault Trucks will be exhibiting at Road Transport Expo at NAEC Stoneleigh (30 June to 2 July). Register now for FREE
