Tractor Units
Cat Lift Trucks distributor Impact Handling has taken delivery of its second Scania R450, to deliver materials handling equipment to customers around the country.

Supplied by Scania dealer TruckEast, the 6x2 Highline is equipped with a sleeper cab and will pull a tri-axle Nooteboom forklift trailer, which can transport up to five 2.5-tonne forklifts.

The new addition bring’s Impact’s specialist fleet to three – two Scania R450s and a single Mercedes-Benz Actros – plus three Nooteboom forklift trailers, all of which operate from Impact’s Corby depot.

Terry Kendrew, Impact’s managing director, says: “By operating our own fleet, we ensure that our customers get the very best in materials handling equipment as quickly as possible, all delivered by a team of professional drivers.

“Such an approach means we can ensure the trucks arrive on time, and are ready to work the moment they roll off the ramp – it’s a factory-to-customer approach that is greatly appreciated by our clients, and demonstrates how far we’ll go to provide the best in customer service. Like it says on the side of the trailer – we go the extra mile.”
