Woodside buys rigid Volvo trucks from Dennison Commercals 01 March 2011

Woodside Distribution has purchased two Volvo FE 18-tonne curtainside rigids from Dennison Commercials, to join a fleet consisting of around 200 trucks across the group.

These trucks were specified with rear air suspension, for ease of loading, and have an increased internal height to accommodate low weight, high volume product. Sleeper cabs have also been specified.

The vehicles, which include sleeper cabs, have been delivered with a five-year R&M (repair and maintenance) package, including an agreement that means all servicing will be carried out in the evenings, and the vehicles delivered back to Woodside the same night.

"Aside from the locality of the Dennison workshop and the convenience of having servicing carried out after our deliveries, the overall quality of the Volvo dealership and the reliability and the quality of the product have really impressed me," says company director Simon Woodside.

The curtainside bodies were manufactured locally by Drumack Coachworks and have also been tailored for the SCA contract, although they can be used for normal operations as well if required.

Woodsides is currently in the process of a vehicle replacement programme and has a further two Volvo 6x2 FH Globetrotter XLs ready to enter service.
