SERVICE & RELIABILITY SECURES 17 NEW RENAULT PREMIUMS FOR H&P FREIGHTWAYS

Excellent reliability and dealer service has seen leading tank container hauliers, H&P Freightways, add a further 17 Renault Premiums to its growing 71-strong all Renault fleet. The Renault Premium 460.25 tractor units, with ADR and discharge equipment, were supplied through Renault Trucks distributor, Thompson Commercials, Hull.

The Renault Premiums will transport tank containers loaded with bulk liquids, powders and gases on behalf of major international blue chip companies. They will operate from all the major UK ports to locations throughout the UK.

Simon Page, Director, H&P Freightways, explains the company’s loyalty to Renault Trucks: “We took our first Renaults 20 years ago and have since replaced the other marques, such as Mercedes, and Iveco, to become an all Renault fleet. All of the trucks are Renault Premiums and we have always found it to be a good, reliable, vehicle.”

“The other reason we moved to Renault is the excellent back-up service we receive from the Renault dealer, Thompson Commercials. Thompson’s fleet sales manager, Ellis Thorpe, was also instrumental in putting together an excellent sales package for us. Our fleet is constantly updated and we wouldn’t want any other make!”

H&P Freightways was established in 1975. The company has depots in Stockton on Tees, Felixstowe, Purfleet, Hull and Widnes. All of the depots offer a 24 hour ‘Emergency Back Up’ service, with the Hull depot providing its own emergency response vehicle, equipped for any chemical spillages and accidents. As well as tank container haulage, H&P Freightways also offers warehousing from its 30,000 sq. ft. storage area, as well as distribution, repairs, lifting and cleaning services.
