Birmingham-based On Point Logistics UK has added a Mercedes Benz Actros 2532 to its burgeoning fleet.

The 26-tonner, comes with steering tag axle for greater manoeuvrability and a StreamSpace cab. Supplied by dealer Midlands Truck & Van, the curtainside body is by Fred Smith & Sons of West Bromwich. 

It comes after the family firm, run by brothers Carl and Anthony Delaney, added a 4x2 Actros 1848 LnR (low frame height) tractor unit with a GigaSpace cab last year, part of a policy of top-spec trucks to retain and attract drivers.

“A strong brand image is important to us,” said Anthony. “We fit wing deflectors and backlit three-pointed stars on the grilles, because if you have a good looking truck it reflects well on the business.”

He added: “Our heavy trucks spend a lot of time in Europe and the drivers love the size, practicality and comfort of their flat-floored BigSpace and GigaSpace cabs.

“We equip them with fridges and microwave ovens, so they’re a real home from home. It’s hard to find good drivers these days and we’re determined to look after ours by providing them with the very best vehicles.”
