Motus Truck & Van has opened a new ATF at its Witham site which was opened by home secretary Priti Patel.

The MP for Witham visited the new Motus facility at Gershwin Park to perform the opening ceremony and was given a tour of the building by MD Lee Seward and general manager Scott Fogharty.

Speaking after her visit Patel said: “It was very interesting to see how this new high-tech system for testing these huge vehicles works. Getting them back on the road as quickly as possible is a vital service as every hour they are out of service is lost revenue for the company which owns them. The road haulage industry is a massively important link in our country’s supply chains, which couldn’t be more important at the present time.”
