RCS Logistics takes Scania P250 for pallet network business 20 January 2016

3PL supplier RCS Logistics has taken delivery of a Scania P250 DB 4x2 MNA day cabbed 18-tonner, supplied by local independent dealer TruckEast, to help match growth in its palletised freight distribution business.

Simon Westley, transport operations manager, says the P250 rigid was selected for its reduced weight – due to the day cab – and hence also the extra payload space.

He also makes the point that its axle spread (5,500mm) made it ideal for the urban deliveries this Corby-based operator is increasingly required to fulfil.

The firm chose the DC09 250bhp engine, with cooled EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) and SCR (selective catalytic reduction), driving through the standard GR875 eight-speed manual.

The vehicle’s curtainside body wrapped in RCS Logistics’ blue and yellow livery, was supplied by Kurt Hobbs Coachworks, and brings the firm’s fleet to 34 vehicles – a mix of artics, rigids and vans.

“The addition of the Scania P250 reinforces our commitment to continued development, our trust in the Scania product and the reliability of the aftersales service from our partner, TruckEast,” comments Westley.
