26 July 2023 #Truck

R Jameson Event Transport has taken delivery of two new Volvo FH 500 Globetrotter XL 4×2 tractor units, specified with driver comfort in mind, to work across the UK and Europe.

Supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre South & East, the two FHs expand the Marlow-based firm’s fleet to 19 vehicles.

Each truck is powered by a Euro-6 compliant D13K Step E engine, producing 500 hp and a peak torque of 2,500 Nm.

They are driven by Volvo’s automated 12-speed I-Shift gearbox, which constantly evaluates information about speed, weight, road grade and torque demand.

The Globetrotter XL cabs have been fitted with a Drive+ package, adding dual armrests on both driver and passenger seats, electrically controlled roof hatch and adjustable steering wheel with neck tilt.

The trucks also include ample storage space with 245-litres on offer in the rear of the cab, a 33-litre fridge, a microwave, two bottle holders and a premium 50mm mattress overlay protector.

Established in 2005, R Jameson Event Transport provides transport solutions for the entertainment and corporate industries.

The new vehicles – backed by a Volvo Blue Contract including all preventative maintenance – are expected to cover 75,000km a year.

Richard Jameson, Managing Director, said: “Our drivers put in quite the stint, so it is only right that they are given the most comfortable working environment possible.

“We’re also acutely aware that our fleet is our image – opting for such a luxurious spec and premium vehicle brand is our way of advertising that we are serious about our work.”
