Supplied by Crossroads Truck & Bus, the three new FHs feature a re-imagined cab, including a modernised dashboard with a fully digital 12-inch, high resolution instrument display. The customer also specified Volvo’s Drive++ package to improve comfort further.
Chris Burley, operations director at Walkers Transport, says: “We obviously do our due diligence whenever adding to the fleet, comparing a number of suppliers and we always end up coming back to Volvo. A key factor for us is considering what the drivers want, and our drivers love Volvo.”
The new FHs are powered by Volvo’s D13K Euro VI engine, delivering 493bhp and 2,500 Nm of torque.
They will be working round the clock, double-shifted five to six days a week delivering a wide variety of palletised goods to Walkers Transport customers throughout the UK.
Supplied on hire purchase through Volvo Financial Services, all three trucks are covered by a Volvo Gold Contract to guarantee maximum uptime, with all scheduled servicing and maintenance to be carried out by the Crossroads Truck and Bus depot in Birstall.
