Renault Premium bonds with Felixstowe haulier 05 April 2011

Goldstar Transport has taken delivery of 60 Euro 5 Renault Premium 460.25 6x2s, all with Privilege cabs.

Renault Trucks describes it as a "conquest deal" – these being the first Renaults to join Goldstar's 200-strong mixed fleet of DAF, Volvo, MAN and Mercedes in more than seven years.

"Renault Trucks and Renault Trucks Felixstowe put together an excellent package on the new Premiums, with servicing at eight weekly intervals," reveals Matthew Ashworth, managing director, Goldstar Transport. "All 60 vehicles will be maintained at Felixstowe on a 48 month contract."

Ashworth says that quality levels were a major consideration when looking at the investment: "The Premium is a quality truck at a very competitive price," he confirms.

"The Privilege cab is well kitted out and, after impressive fuel returns on the demonstrator vehicle we trialled, we are expecting to see further fuel savings with the Optidriver+ gearbox," he adds.

The new Renault Premiums will be used on a four-year contract for the UK arm of global deep sea shipping firm Mediterranean Shipping Company, undertaking container transport on a nationwide basis.
