News from Volvo: Birmingham-based RGF Logistics Limited, are conducting fuel trials on two Euro-6 compliant tractor units against other vehicles in their eighty-strong fleet. With annual mileage of 95,000 miles per year, fuel efficiency and dealer support is critical.

The trucks were supplied by Hartshorne Motor Group and will also be maintained overnight at the dealership on a two-year Volvo Gold Repair and Maintenance contract.

“The Volvo FH’s driver appeal and our good experience with resale value in the past was a key reason for continuing to choose Volvo”, commented RGF Logistics Limited Operations Manager Terry Harris.

The new series FH trucks are powered by Volvo’s D13K-460, Euro-6 compliant engine rated at 460hp. The 6×2 tractor units with Globetrotter XL cab will be coupled to Lawrence David curtainside trailers, some of which are fitted with Moffett truck-mounted forklifts.

The trucks will be put to work out of their four sites in Birmingham and Corby to deliver logistics services across the UK.
