Cardiff haulier T4 Logistics has taken delivery of four new Mercedes-Benz Actros 2548 BigSpace tractor units from Euro Commercials.
The new units will join a mixed fleet which includes vehicles previously operated by three recently acquired local companies as well as four new DAF XF 6x2s purchased in January.
“Those units gave us more problems than we anticipated,” explained T4’s transport consultant Mark Rees. “The Actros, by contrast, has an excellent track record in our fleet – they’ve been highly dependable and cost-effective to operative. For our latest order we therefore had no hesitation in returning ‘home’ to Euro Commercials who have always provided excellent customer service.”
Established in 2013 by David Butler, T4 logistics has steadily grown, carrying a range of loads from 20- and 40-foot shipping containers and demountable tanks to skeletal frame trailers and steel on flatbeds.
“We’re still a relatively young business but as individuals we’re all steeped in the transport industry,” said Rees. “Within our head office team we have a total of well over 100 years’ experience. As well as its proven reliability the Actros has always been a popular truck with our drivers.
"The latest developments on these new models only make it more so. MirrorCam, in particular, is clearly the way forward in vehicle design. Overall, we’re delighted with our new Mercedes-Benz trucks.”
