May 8, 2017

Adnams of Southwold has added an 18-tonne Range D to its 29-strong delivery fleet, supplied by Norfolk Truck and Van, in a conquest deal for Renault Trucks.

Its Range D18 High 4x2 R250 is equipped with dual air-suspended seats and delivers beer, wine, spirits and soft drinks from the brewer’s East of England base. The curtain-sided body incorporates a ‘Slide and Carry’ roof retractable net securing system from CV Rollers, installed by Colliers, to meet current load restraint rules.

Adnams’ supply chain manager Kevin Wells said: “One of the major reasons for initially selecting the Range D was our willingness to give a new manufacturer the opportunity to prove its vehicle in our fleet. We liked the approach from James Cooper from Norfolk Truck and Van and he put the right deal together. We decided to give one a go on a trial basis, with vehicle reliability being the most important consideration for us.

“The payload of the Range D is good and it is promising good mileage too, so we will be closely monitoring its performance and downtime over the coming months.”
