Humber Ports Logistics has taken delivery of six Volvo FH 500s equipped with I-Shift Dual Clutch transmission systems.

The 6x2 pusher-axle tractor units have Globetrotter cabs on medium-height chassis and join approximately 40 Volvo trucks in the company’s fleet of 62.

The six newcomers were supplied by Dave Emsley at Crossroads Truck and Bus, Stallingborough, Lincolnshire.

Depot manager Jason Moffat said: “Our trucks each average between 85,000km and 100,000km a year and three years ago we increased the standard fleet power output to 500hp.

"Container movements in the M62 corridor, and to the heart of the Midlands, make up a big percentage of our regular workload and we retain trucks for three years.”   

Crossroads Truck and Bus will provide weekend servicing for the trucks.
