Armstrong Logistics tractor units Volvo

Lutterworth-based Armstrong Logistics has received 10 new Volvo FM 420 Globetrotter 4x2 tractor units following excellent fuel economy and reliability provided by its existing Volvo models.

Supplied by Stuart Pearce, new truck sales director at Truck and Bus Wales and West, the vehicles expand the customer’s fleet to 82 units.

The new trucks are each powered by a Euro-VI compliant D13K Step E engine, producing 420 hp and a peak torque of 2,100 Nm. They are driven by the ever-popular automated 12-speed I-Shift transmission, which evaluates information about speed, weight, road grade and torque demand to enable perfectly timed gearshifts.

The new trucks will be primarily used to deliver to supermarkets across the UK, clocking up an expected annual mileage of 200,000km in the process. They have also been backed by a Volvo Gold Contract, which is said to deliver cost control and maximum uptime.
