As part of its continuous growth and expansion, Woodside Logistics Group has expanded its fleet with 27 new Volvo FH13.460 tractor units from Dennison Commercials.
The new trucks will be serving different areas of the business, which has been operating for over 50 years and one of the UK and Ireland’s leading distribution, haulage and logistics companies.
Woodside Haulage will take delivery of 23 of the new units, which are all fitted with full active safety packages, fridge freezers, plus media packs which include TomTom SatNav and Volvo’s own Dynafleet telematics system.
For use on general haulage duties across Great Britain and Ireland, the trucks have all been specified with Globetrotter XL cabs, and specifically ordered with the drivers’ well-being in mind by providing secure and comfortable accommodation with greater storage space.
Woodside’s tanker division, Haulage Services, which operates bulk powder, liquid and gas tankers, will benefit from the other four new trucks. Each comes with a full ADR, factory-fitted lightweight spec mid-lift axle and a Globetrotter cab.
Mark Woodside, Director, Woodside Haulage, stated “Our transport and logistics business is based on operational efficiency and the provision of a dependable service for our customers. It is important that our fleet is reliable and well presented, and that our drivers feel they go to work every day in a quality vehicle, which is why we continue to invest in the Volvo brand. The safety Features that we have specified undoubtedly help to improve the safety of our own drivers and other road users.”
He added, “Dennison Commercials not only supplies us with a reliable and fuel-efficient fleet, it also provides an excellent level of customer support afterwards.” The first of the new trucks were delivered this month, all sporting Woodside’s traditional ‘china’ green.
