RH Commercial Vehicles gets a re-design

Renault Trucks dealer RH Commercial Vehicles has unveiled a new logo for its fiver sites and 200-strong truck rental fleet.

The update replaces the previous branding which is associated with the freight and logistics group, RH Freight.

Nigel Baxter, RHCV MD said: “We are a completely different business today from that which was a subsidiary to RH Freight, and it is time for a fresh new look which better reflects our business and our continuing and ambitious growth plans.”

“The new logo is an evolution not a revolution and remains sympathetic to our heritage. We have retained the original red but with a look which is now streamlined and more contemporary, it is also vitally important that the new branding also complemented both our partners, Renault Trucks and Isuzu logos.” 

A new website, featuring the revised logo, is due to be unveiled next month.  

Axtec rolls back the price to celebrate its 30th anniversary

Axle weighing specialist Axtec is celebrating its 30th anniversary by offering one customer the chance to purchase its Static Single-Axle Weighbridge for the 1991 price of £4,999 instead of the usual £9,000.

This celebratory price roll-back will be offered to one customer on a first-come-first-served basis.

“The installation of Axtec’s Static-Single Weighbridge for under £5,000 presents a significant incentive for one fortunate operator,” said MD Keith Gresham, “It’s been a tough 12 months for the transport industry,” he added, “with many operators’ trucks and equipment lying idle. In these tough times, an under-loaded truck means productivity is compromised. Worse though is the potential danger posed by an overloaded vehicle and the safety implications for drivers and other road users.”

The Axtec Static Single-Axle Weighbridge is designed specifically for operators of 2-axle rigid vehicles.
