21 December 2023 #Truck

UK and international temperature-controlled and ambient transport specialist, Broughton Transport Solutions has added the first Renault Trucks T Highs to its 60-strong mixed fleet.

Supplied by Sparks Commercial Services, the two T520 High 6×2 pusher tractor units were selected for their fuel economy, performance, driver satisfaction and the relationship with the dealer following a comprehensive trial with a demonstrator vehicle.

They will operate out of the haulier’s Melksham base, and join existing Renault Trucks’ vehicles, including three rigids and two vans, with the latest vehicles brought on board for long-haul international temperature controlled and ambient transport work.

The 13 litre T520 Highs with high sleeper cabs are fitted with the Optidriver AT 2612 gearbox with automatic clutch providing a maximum torque of 2550 Nm at 990 rpm to 1400 rpm.

These vehicles are equipped for enhanced driver comfort with luxury adjustable, heated and ventilated driver’s seat, leather steering wheel, heat insulated cab, air conditioning and insulated cab curtains.

Additional comforts include multi-media touchscreen, multiple lighting, fridge, microwave and additional rear lockers for extra storage on long road trips.

The T520 Highs have been secured on five-year repair and maintenance contracts through Sparks Commercial Services in Swindon.

Toby Ovens, Managing Director at Broughton Transport Solutions said: “There is a growing appetite for premium British meat on the continent, and the addition of these Renault Trucks’ vehicles to our fleet is essential to meet the demands of our consistently busy workload.

“The driver also praised the well-designed cab, noting its spaciousness and excellent ride.”
