IVECO S-Way to get its UK launch at the CV Show

The IVECO S-Way will receive its official UK launch at the 2020 Commercial Vehicle Show.

The truck maker, which will be exhibiting for the first time since 2016, will show a pair of 6x2 AS tractors. One will be an NP, featuring the 460hp Cursor 13 gas engine, while the second will be powered by a 570hp Euro-6d diesel engine.

Sascha Kaehne, IVECO UK business director said: “The Commercial Vehicle show provides us with the most perfect venue from which to launch our new 100% fully connected new IVECO S-Way.  This new truck has been redesigned from the ground up, with both drivers and customers at its core, offering sustainability, cost savings, productivity gains and safety, and we are eagerly looking forward to presenting it to the UK haulage industry.”

In addition to the S-Ways, IVECO will show a Eurocargo and a pair of Daily vans, one of which will be CNG-powered.



Sydenhams purchases a new DAF XF from Adams Morey

Timber and builders merchants Sydenhams has taken delivery of a DAF XF 480 Space Cab, its first ever new tractor purchase.

The truck, which joins a 64-strong predominantly DAF fleet, was bought from Adams Morey.

It will be based at Sydenhams’ new Glastonbury branch, and will be used to deliver timber products and building materials from as far afield as Penzance and North Wales.

Jamie Thompson, group transport manager at Sydenhams, explained that the XF will be coupled to a tri-axle trailer, one of a handful Sydenhams inherited when it purchased the Glastonbury site.

He said: “We ran a trailer refurbishment program of the inherited trailers where we had them re-sprayed and the fitment of new curtains. They now sit in our colours and livery, which we think looks very smart.”
