Radbournes adds to fleet with Iveco X-Way and Eurocargo tippers

Herefordshire-based Radbournes has increased its Iveco fleet with the arrival of an 8x4 Stralis X-Way tipper and a Eurocargo 4x2 tipper.

The aggregate, concrete, and landscaping products suppliers is celebrating its 40th anniversary and has been increasing the number of Ivecos on the fleet.

Three Iveco Stralis X-Way tippers have been bought from Glenside Commercials with two brand new units and one ex-demonstrator being used to transport a range of stone and aggregates across Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Powys, and Worcestershire with each truck covering around 130,000km a year. A fourth tipper is also on order.

“The X-WAYs carry out the work where we need to maximise payload and where ground clearance and traction are important, typically when we are delivering to construction sites. They also cover a lot of road miles, so they must be very versatile in several different areas,” explained Radbournes MD Chris Radbourne.

Also joining the fleet is a Iveco Eurocargo ML180E25K tipper fitted with a Bulkrite. Plated at 18-tonnes the Eurocargo has a payload of 10,500kg and will be used for loose tip deliveries to trade and DIY customers.

Mark Lovering, MD of Glenside Commercials said: “We are delighted to see Radbournes increase Iveco’s share of its total fleet of trucks. Its delivery service is a key part of why the business is so highly regarded by thousands of trade and DIY professionals. We look forward to delivering another new Stralis X-WAY 8x4 later in 2021.”

VisionTrack launches new US business

VisionTrack has launched a new US venture following its success in the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Based in California, the new company will hope to mirror its success in providing advanced AI video telematics solutions to fleets.

“This is an exciting next step for us following record levels of growth in the Europe during the first half of the year,” explained Simon Marsh, CEO of VisionTrack.

“Our hardware agnostic approach – meaning we are not tied to any one device manufacturer – makes us unique within the video telematics space and well placed to rapidly expand our North American presence. We are also committed to driving innovation by focusing on industry-leading data science, artificial intelligence (AI) and computer vision developments.”

VisionTrack will make their range of dashcams and multi-channel MDVRs available to the market along with their optional AI technology and Internet of Things platform, Autonomise.ai.

“We are actively seeking US opportunities that are the right fit for the business and support our growth strategy. Our parent company, Markerstudy, has recently received a £200m investment, so we have a war chest available to fund future acquisitions. Global turnover is forecasted to increase by more than 100% in 2021 and we believe VisionTrack Inc will make a significant, positive contribution to our financial performance,” Marsh added.
