Supplied by dealer Aquila Truck Services, the new additions are F110.210 rigids fitted with refrigerated bodies by Jacksons Coachworks. They join 10 other Isuzu trucks and have gone into service delivering products to fish fryers and takeaway outlets across the West Midlands.
One of the new vehicles has been specified with a Jacksons combo body, with a refrigerated box body at the front and a curtainsided body at the rear for ambient goods. Supplying everything from fish, chicken and sausages to cleaning products and oils/fats, the combination of a curtainsided rear section with a refrigerated box at the front allows TCR to carry all products on one vehicle.
Brian Matthews, TCR’s managing director, says of the vehicles: “They give us the payload that we are looking for, as well as giving us the reliability we need for our distribution operations.”
He adds: “The combination of Isuzu and the Jacksons bodywork is the ideal solution for us.”
The trucks are expected to be in operation for seven years, after which the bodies will be used on replacement chassis.
