Supplied by dealer Renault Trucks Chiltern, the 44-tonne Range T480.26s join RPL’s 32-strong fleet for UK-based general haulage which includes newspapers, consumables, liquid inks, food and drinks, DIY and building supplies.
The vehicles are supplied by BRS on a full, three-year, 160,000km per annum contract which covers road tax, tyres and on-site repair and maintenance, including at weekends to minimise vehicle downtime.
RPL’s operations director Danny Wright also says positive experience of Renault Magnums and a longstanding relationship with the dealer were key factors.
“We’ve had a long relationship with Renault Trucks Chiltern that spans over 15 years; they listen to our requirements and are committed to providing reliable trucks together with first class back-up service.
“We’ve been running Renault Magnums for many years and have found them to be great long range trucks. Business is good so we were looking for replacement and additional vehicles for our fleet and the new Range T was the natural choice.”
The Range Ts are specified with the optional Comfort Pack – boosting driver appeal – which includes fridge, alloy wheels, automatic emergency braking system and lane departure warning system.
Wright adds: “The competitive deal through BRS really made the difference. It included everything we needed and the on-site, weekend servicing is fantastic, as it doesn’t impact on our customers’ delivery schedules.”
