A new Volvo FH16-750 at East Yorkshire’s Richardson Transport is helping to keep the flu virus at bay, as well as picking up trophies for its eye-catching finish.

The fully air-suspended truck helps deliver hundreds of thousands of eggs from farms across the UK to Liverpool, which are used in the production of the influenza vaccine.

The Newton-upon-Derwent haulier has also won several awards for the Volvo’s striking tiger-themed livery, after being placed third in the pecking order at last month's Truckfest Northwest’s ‘Best Kept Custom & Paintwork’ category, second in the ‘Best Kept Overall New Truck’ competition and ruled the roost in the ‘Martin Rigby Memorial Award’, named in honour of the owner of Cheshire-based Martin Rigby Haulage, who died following a motorbike crash at the Isle of Man TT festival in 2015.

The FH16 joins Richardson Transport’s 14-strong fleet and will also operate in general haulage and turf transportation.
