Renault and BRS deliver the full package for JMA Transport11 May 2015

Bolton-based haulier JMA Transport has taken delivery of two 44-tonne Renault Range T tractors, following head-to-head evaluations with Mercedes, Iveco and DAF during which the Renault came out top on fuel performance.

Supplied on two- and four-year contract hire deals through BRS, the Range T460 Comfort vehicles join JMA's 10-strong fleet, which includes Mercedes, Iveco and Renault vehicles. The company has already ordered six more for delivery later this year.

''We selected the new Range T for quite a few reasons," says Chris Allsop, JMA's financial director.

"It offered the best overall deal for our particular needs plus, crucially, it was the best on fuel when we put it head-to-head in demonstrations with other manufacturers. We chose BRS as one of our contract hire suppliers because of the excellent services and great working relationship we have with the Manchester branch.''

The cab layout is proving a hit with drivers, he adds, and fuel economy is already good, with further improvement expected as the vehicles run in.
