Transmec Group has added nine new Iveco Stralis Hi-Way 6×2 twin-steer tractor units to its UK operation. The Italian-owned logistics company has a long-standing relationship with Iveco and runs a 100% Iveco fleet in the UK.
Transmec UK General Manager John Simkins said, “Our Iveco trucks have always delivered excellent performance. The new vehicles feature Iveco’s latest technology in terms of performance and fuel economy, and we are looking forward to the benefits these will bring to our business – and more importantly – our customers.”
The new Stralis Hi-Way AS440S48TX/P tractor units operate from Transmec’s Bradford depot and are fitted with 11-litre Cursor 11 engines, which produce 480hp at 1,500-1,900rpm, and up to 2,250Nm of torque at 950-1,500rpm.
Incorporating Iveco’s industry-leading HI-SCR technology, the Stralis trucks meet Euro-6 emissions limits without the need for exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) or the resulting regeneration process commonly required. Iveco says this increases productivity as HI-SCR requires neither driver involvement nor downtime from active regeneration, optimising the energy efficiency of the Euro-6 technology as no fuel is used to burn particulates and no energy is lost to cool down exhaust gases.
The arrival of the distinctive blue and yellow-liveried vehicles comes shortly after the delivery of eight new Stralis trucks in late 2014.
Transmec works across the automotive, fashion, furniture, hi-tech, industrial and grocery sectors and runs a 24/7 operation across the UK.
