Six Renault Master chassis cabs for Scottish haulier15 February 2021

Following an increase in business demand since the Coronavirus pandemic, Glasgow-based logistics firm Keedwell Scotland has added six Renault Master chassis cabs with Truckcraft curtainside bodies to its 50-strong fleet.

Supplied by Renault Trucks Scotland, the vehicle was said to have been chosen for superior carrying capacity and good looks.

The 145bhp Renault Trucks Master Red EDITION Chassis Cabs L3 were bought in for general haulage pallet collections and deliveries across Scotland.

“We’ve been running Renault Trucks Ts and T Highs for some time so it was the natural step to turn to Renault Trucks when we needed the latest additions. Three of the new vehicles are replacements with the other three brought in specifically to manage the upturn in demand we’ve seen since the start of the pandemic,” explains Keedwell Scotland director John McLellan.

McLellan continues: “The main reason for purchasing the Master Red EDITION is its high load capacity in combination with the tail-lift. Fitting tail lifts usually reduces the vehicle’s carrying capacity, but the Red EDITION can take 800kg, while competitor vehicles only achieve 500kg. This reduces the overall number of runs, and helps considerably in creating a more efficient and economical business.”

The Master Red EDITION features chrome radiator grille and high power headlights with LED light signature whilst the interior boasts a new dashboard and upholstery. They are also equipped with air conditioning, six-speed gearbox and reversing sensor and camera.

Projecting a professional image was high on the list of Keedwell Scotland’s requirements. “In my opinion it’s one of the best-looking vehicles on the road. It is perfect for our business application and the new design allows our drivers to work more efficiently and in greater safety. This, combined with the impressive load capacity, sealed the deal,” says John McLellan.

Keedwell Scotland praised local dealer Renault Trucks Scotland in vehicle provision and aftersales service.
