Bell Truck and Van has supplied Morpeth-based haulier M Dungait and Sons with its third Mercedes-Benz Actros this year.

The vehicle, powered by a 12.8-litre straight-six engine producing 510hp and featuring a PowerShift automated gearbox, comes with a two-year R&M contract and pulls a 4.8m high trailer, delivering wood-based materials for Egger (UK).

Dungait runs a fleet of 18 trucks, mostly Actros 2551 BigSpace tractor units, all from Bell Truck and Van.

Director John Dungait said: “We’ve been working with Bell Truck and Van for many years and enjoy a close relationship - the dealer looks after us really well and nothing is ever too much trouble.

"We tend to keep our trucks for five years and once the free two-year R&M cover has expired we undertake routine checks and maintenance in-house, but return them to Bell for anything more complex.

“The dealer keeps our workshop supplied with regular, prompt parts deliveries, and is always very flexible when it comes to booking a truck in, carrying out work overnight if necessary.”
