Plastics supplier slices £10,000 per truck off R&M bill with MAN13 May 2014

Plastics supplier Jonesco has taken delivery of its first Euro 6 MAN 7.5 tonners, after an evaluation revealed it could save £10,000 per vehicle on a five-year repair and maintenance contract compared to its previous supplier.

The two TGL 8.150 BB 4x2s rigids, with manual gearboxes, are now operating out of Preston-based Jonesco's new 3,700 sq m warehouse and distribution centre.

Supplied by dealer MAN Truck & Bus Preston and funded through MAN Financial Services, the trucks come with full telematics including EcoStyle driver performance monitoring.

"Our five-year, 650,000km R&M contract comes in a full £10,000 less per vehicle than MAN's competitor truck brand in our fleet – and against any other truck manufacturer, for that matter," says Damian Leigh, Jonesco's despatch manager.

"For a three-vehicle fleet, that's a significant cost saving for our transport operation."

The vehicles have 23ft-6in curtainsided bodies, by Fosters Commercials.
