Staffordshire-based RE Davies has recently acquired four new Iveco S-Way tractor units for its growing business. RE Davies specialises in the transportation of refrigerator systems to supermarkets and having started back in 2008 owner Richard Davies now runs a total of nine vehicles.
Sherwood Truck and Van supplied the vehicles to RE Davies who specified them with colour-coded rear and cab wings, a painted front grille, DVS camera system, cab roof lights, alloy wheels and 24-inch Hadley air horns.
Speaking about their new vehicles, Davies said: “Our fleet has been around five vehicles for a couple of years now and the majority of those were hired. I decided that now was the right time to really invest in trucks that were going to last and put us at an advantage in terms of delivering for our clients and helping our drivers perform to the best of their ability.
Richard’s son, Tom Davies, works as a driver for the company and has travelled across the UK, including trips to Scotland and Wales, within the first week of receiving his new S-WAY.
“The S-WAY has been perfect for every journey I've taken so far, the tech side runs smoothly and it does really well on fuel,” commented Tom Davies.
“I’ve been driving for three years, this is my fourth truck and this is smoother and comfier than the others. It looks the part too, you really do get attention travelling in this and it’s been good for business - we see photographs popping up online from truck enthusiasts all of the time now,” he added.
