Renault Trucks has announced the addition of 15 new T460 6x2s to the fleet of logistics and materials management provider, ASCO Group. The Range Ts will be providing waste, fuels and cargo transportation for the gas and oil industry.
Supplied by Renault Trucks Scotland on a five-year operating lease deal, the new Range Ts are replacements for the existing Premiums and have been selected for their performance and styling as well as first class after sales service.
ASCO Transport Operations Manager Paul Davidson said: “We have been working with Renault for over 20 years and all the logistics as well as our Waste Business and Fuel and Lubes run Renaults. So, when we were looking for replacements, they were our natural first choice – we simply had no reason to look elsewhere.”
Paul continues: “We have been very pleased with the product over the years and the new units are no exception; we are delighted with these too. We appreciate the value and styling and, in our experience, the fuel economy is very good.”
Working out of ASCO’s Peterhead bases, the new Range Ts will be travelling as far as Montrose and Edzell to the south, and Peterhead to the north, as well as reaching Scrabster and Invergordon during periods of bad weather offshore. The waste vehicles in the north run as far as the North West of England and the Range T stationed in Great Yarmouth covers the South of England.
As well as looking good on the outside, the Range Ts are fitted with some of the latest technology including sensored braking, lane departure warning system, adaptive cruise control as well as Renault Trucks’ acclaimed Optidriver gearbox with automated clutch and steering wheel mounted gear selector.
“The trucks fit seamlessly into our operation and the day-to-day activities we carry out and of particular note are the positive fuel economy figures as well as the styling and overall value. In addition, all the new Range Ts are Euro 6 which helps to reduce our carbon footprint. We are delighted with our new vehicles.” concludes Paul.
