16 March 2023 #Truck

Colchester distributor Pallet Plus has taken delivery of 11 new MAN trucks all powered by the manufacturer’s latest-generation Euro VIe engines.

Ensuring customers receive a focused and flexible service, the new fleet additions come in the form of one 12-tonne TGL, seven 18-tonne TGMs, one 26-tonne TGS rigid and two TGX 44-tonne 6×2 tractors.

These include the four-cylinder D0834 in the TGL 12-tonners, the six-cylinder D0836 in both the TGM 18-tonne and nine-litre D15 in the TGX 26-tonne rigids, and the D26 in the TGX 6×2 tractors.

The nine chassis cabs were transported directly to body builder Micra Truck Bodies in Wakefield, where they were fitted with a lightweight curtainsider body featuring rear barn doors and a 1.5-tonne capacity cantilever tail lift.

The two tractors were prepared and PDI’d by Harris Truck and Van in Witham, and liveried by The Sign Stop Colchester.

These GM cabbed tractors will pull a mix of 40-foot curtainsiders and LST extra-long high volume double deck stepframe trailers.

Pallet Plus, which is a member of the Pallet Network, now operates 50 vehicles, the vast majority of which are MANs.

Gary Rowe, Managing Director at Pallet Plus Limited, said: “We like to ensure we offer our drivers a high level of comfort and safety throughout their working days, this is of primary concern, and we feel that these new MAN trucks deliver the high standards they require.

“Certainly, the comments and feedback we’ve had so far indicates once again that we’ve made the right choice.”
