Langridge Organic Products has updated its fleet with seven new Isuzu N75.190 refrigerated trucks fitted with Easyshift automated gearboxes.
Operating out of the company’s head office in Feltham, Middlesex, two of the new Isuzu trucks are specified with brand new temperature-controlled bodies from local company TLC Bodies, whilst the remaining five new Isuzu 7.5t chassis have had existing Paneltex refrigerated bodies refurbished and swapped from the Isuzus they are replacing.
“This latest fleet truck deal is our third replacement vehicle programme based on the Isuzu marque and the vehicles will be in our fleet for a further five years. Quite simply, we find that the Isuzus are very much like our products in that they have all the good things we need and none of the bad, ticking our box for payload, compact footprint, and proven reliability,” said Alex Pearce, MD, Langridge Organic Products.
“When we first started specifying Isuzus in the fleet, it was the payload that really attracted us to the brand, easily far better than any other manufacturer at 7.5 tonne GVW. As we deliver regularly within the M25 conurbation, the compact footprint of the Isuzu chassis was also a significant factor which, combined with the Easyshift automated gearbox, made the trucks very easy to drive in built-up urban areas.”
The order was supplied by local dealer Cordwallis Commercials at Heathrow and is supported by a fully inclusive repair and maintenance package through Isuzu Truck (UK).
The vehicles are expected to cover around 40,000km per annum, delivering a range of organic fruit and vegetables to wholesale suppliers, restaurants, food manufacturing sites and schools in the Midlands, East Anglia and the south of England.
