RENAULT TRUCKS KEY PART OF MULTI-MILLION POUND WINCANTON INVESTMENT
Wincanton has selected the Renault Trucks Range T as the latest addition to its 200+ vehicle line-up.
As part of a multi-million-pound investment in new vehicles for its UK-wide construction network, Wincanton, the UK’s largest logistics firm, has significantly increased the size and capability of its fleet and selected the Renault Trucks Range T as the latest addition to its 200+ dedicated construction vehicle line-up.
The twelve 44 tonne Range T460 6x2 tractor units with sleeper cab, which are part of a wider outlay in new vehicles, add to the existing 21 Range Ts (including two Night and Day cabbed Range T430 6x2s) purchased last year and will be used to carry building materials. The Range Ts are a seamless replacement for the current fleet but with specification enhancement for FORS and CLOCS compliance, and are being supplied on an operating lease with R&M support via Wincanton’s in-house maintenance provider, Pullman Fleet Services.
Previously favourable experiences with Renault Premiums, driver acceptance and good operating costs were key to Wincanton’s vehicle selection as Transport Manager, Dave Rowlands explains: “We are dedicated to adding value and delivering excellent service to our customers, and the Renault Range T460 trucks are a valuable addition to our fleet, ensuring our customers receive the most efficient and effective delivery process possible.”
Renault Trucks’ Regional Business Manager, Martin Christopher, comments on the deal: “We are delighted that Wincanton has selected Renault Trucks to support the growth of its construction business. The Range T has developed a well-deserved reputation for exceptional operating performance, fuel efficiency as well as high driver acceptance and is fast becoming the first choice for many businesses looking to improve the attractiveness of their transport offering.”
